I FOUND THESE IN AN OLD TACKLE SHOP IN ST. LOUIS MO. CALLED LOST VALLEY LAKES , THAT WENT OUT OF BUSINESS IN 1980. DONT KNOW HOW LONG THESE WERE THERE BEFORE THAT.PROBABLY MADE IN THE 60`S OR 70`S . YOU CAN TELL BY THE OLD STYLE ROD IN THE PICTURES ! THEY ARE PRETTY COOL ITEMS. IT CLAMPS ON TO YOUR ROD, YOU RUN YOUR LINE THROUGH THE ALARM AND WHEN A FISH PULLS ON YOUR LINE , A LIGHT COMES ON ! IT`S THE SIZE OF A SMALL FLASHLIGHT . 40 - 50 YEARS OLD AND STILL LIKE NEW- AND ALL BUT A COUPLE HAVE STILL WORKED PROPERLY ! TAKES A DOUBLE A BATTERY. EVERYONE THAT BOUGHT ONE FOR THEIR VINTAGE FISHING COLLECTION HAS LOVED THEM AND MANY OF THEM BOUGHT MORE FOR FRIENDS. !!!!!!!!!THEY ARE VERY RARE !!!!!!!AND I HAVE A VERY LIMITED AMOUNT !!SO YOU WONT GET MANY CHANCES TO OWN ONE . I`VE NEVER SEEN ANY ON EBAY IN MY TEN YEARS EXCEPT MINE !! I THOUGHT THEY WERE GONE FOREVER, BUT I DUG UP SOME MORE I HAD IN STORAGE ! SO HERE`S ONE MORE CHANCE TO GET ONE FOR YOUR COLLECTION! MOUNTING HARDWARE AND INSTRUCTIONS ARE INCLUDED AS SEEN IN PICS. THANKS AND GOOD LUCK , E
