Fly fishing gear !! where! :yikes:

 

I found some in fishing cottages in Tasmania and New Zealand. They were mostly from the era when fly rods were canes. The prices were high for my liking, the rods were not well preserved and for all purposes unusable. I would prefer to buy a modern one that I can really use.

 

I mainly use a 4-weight Penn rod with a 5-weight double taper line.

I only have two pens -  an Aurora Optima and others.

I collect soviet memorabillia but that doesn't mean i support some of the things done in the era. I just happen to find it a rather fascinating piece of a country's history. And i do so even though Stalin sent my great grandfather to a goulag for speaking out against the government (he escaped though).

 

I do not collect memorabilia, but I have a KGB pocket watch. Its accuracy is acceptable. I bought it in a Prague store that sold Soviet era items. What I like to purchase is one of those Soviet fountain pens, since I do collect pens from different countries.

 

I am glad your great grandfather made his escape. I hate dictators, I spent most of my life under one.

To me it looks an obvious fake. I don't believe Mb would make such a pen in the 30s-40s, it doesn't even look Mb. It is too flashy to be Mb. And definetly too flashy to be nazi. Do you even know the name of the model?
