Seasoned With Time

Gaddis looks back to a time when quality was a byword in the creation of hunting and fishing equipment, and labor costs allowed the craftsmanship necessary to sustain it. He discusses the quality that was exemplified in the guns and tackle of yesteryear. Production of higher grade guns was measured in months, and even the lesser grade field guns required several weeks of handwork. Three things that distinguished fishing lures from present-day ones were that the lures were beautifully balanced, their hardware was designed to hold the fish, and they were made of wood instead of plastic.
