Yes, they were visually sumptuous productions, weren't they? And filled with priceless information to determine things like things like when the "brownies" were current, and what each model was recommended for. I have ten, from 1991 to 2009. I won't sell them all, because I want to keep some for the information, and others like the 1996 catalog. The cover shot of a solitary angler stalking a riser on Idaho's Big Lost River is the most gorgeous fly fishing photograph that I've ever seen.

What were you thinking about paying?

I had a bunch of them but threw most of them away when I moved some 10 years ago. I like the information on the rod's specifications like weight, tip diameter, etc.

Which of the ones you got still has the 500 reel series described?

I don't know what old catalogs are worth? I'd be interested up to 1993.
A real good scan would be okay too.

Just let me know what you think.

I have the 1991 catalog in excellent condition. It has the specs for the 503 L, 504 L, 505 L, 506 L, 508 and 509 reels: capacity, weight, etc. I'll sell it for $5, delivered. Sorry that I haven't had time to answer you until now.

I was thumbing through some stuff today and ran across a 1976 Dan Bailey's catalog,
made me feel old.:(
A two year old fly fishing catalog is scrap paper; the same catalog when 40 years old can be a valuable piece of history.
