Dick Wigram’s Fishing Bag


A green canvas ex-US Army service bag used as a fishing bag by Dick Wigram. It has a small pair of nail scissors attached by string. Back in the days when Dick fished the rivers and lakes of northern Tasmania, anglers made do with whatever was available at the time. The range of tackle and accessories we have available today was simply not available for purchase, so fishermen of the day made do with old and surplus army disposal items – this bag was just such an item.
