Gone Fishin'

A group devoted to the Angler and the Angler at Heart. 

If the topic has anything to do with fishing, this is the place to post.  Tell us your fishing stories, talk about tackle old and new!  What you like and what you don’t like.  

Bought some new equipment and want to tell us about?  We want to hear about it. 

Thinking about buying a new pole and want to know it if it is worth the money?  Ask up!

Do you collect fishing tackle?  Show it off with pride!

 Any type of angler with any skill level is welcome!  

And as this is I Knife Collector, this is also a place to talk about the knives made, used and collected by anglers!   We especially want to see your fishing knives -- in the tackle box, on display, or in action!

Are the fish running where you are?

Hope to get out this week-end. We had one week-end this winter when the ice was thick enough to fish. Now the weather is warm enough and the ice is gone but I'm not skilled enough to cast from shore…Continue

Morning Tobias and Steve,  I picked up my used Puma Scale knife about 7 or 8 years ago, just for the cool factor and for my tackle box.  I have not researched the knife fully, but as you mentioned Steve, it was offered with either English or metric units. My Scale knife is also in English units.  Abercrombie & Fitch offered this German Puma knife in the 50's and 60's with wood scales and red lettering.  One good source for info is classicpumaknives dot com.  Best of the day from snowy TN

Bill and Steve, you know I. Ever realized the ball used to bash the fish head also acts as a counter weight for weighing the fish.

There have been so many ingenious gadgets designed for the angler. A one bladed fishing folder that can cut, scale, knockout, weigh, and possibly even measure your catch.

That's one beautiful fish knocker knife! I need to add one to my collection but haven't found one in nice enough shape at a price I can afford.

I love all that dark wood. Is that brass? Simply beautiful.

I Believe that This Model is More Rare than the SS One, because I Can't find the Same one online as Readily as the S/S!

Also I Think YOurs is in Metric and Mine is SAE?

hmmmm, we will have to see if any of our fishing collectors have that Puma, I like it!

I'll drop these in the Gone Fishin' Group as the Puma Scale Knife was made for the fisherman.

Taken in December 2009, I think these shots were my first knife photos. I originally titled it one Cat Measuring Another.  :-)  The White Hunter was A Christmas present from about 50 years ago while the Puma Waagemesser (Scale Knife) Patent No. 922214 was a more recent purchase.

:-)  Jan,  I was pretty sick, kinda like the time I broke the storm door playing with a hula hoop LOL  But there really was no option the river was cold and pretty swift when it happened. But life goes on and I've given dozens of knives away as an adult without the least bit of regret.  In fact the fun of passing a good knife on as I'm sure you know is pretty addictive.  Thanks again for the chance for a Christmas Knife.

Although it may have had no humor in it when it happened...I got a giggle out of imagining your face when you realized what you had just thrown in.  I can almost hear the wheels turning on the...do I go get it? question
