    An Alcocks Match Aerial for £5 in about 1970. Shop was clearing out tackle they couldn’t sell and I believe that Alcock had just gone out of business at that time.

    Still use it. Perfect working order.

    My Mrs is a car boot sale fanatic and a couple of years back she along with lots of other scavangers where looking/scrabbling and grabbing through a pile of stuff someone had dumped and the sale organisers would just throw it away at the end of the day if no one took it. Anyway she found a wicker loyd loom otterman and also found me a boxed allcocks match aerial inside an old suitcase, inside a box, inside it's own box. Ok the box was/is a bit tatty but the reel is totally as new and looks like it's never been used at all !
    Since then I've had quite a few trips to the sale myself and have had a few excellent buys. I did regret not buying a new sage fly rod for £70 as when I got home I looked it up on ebay and the same model (but used) was going for £500 and above.

    £10 for a 40" triangular landing net and handle in an auction at Thorpe park tackle show a few years ago.

    still never used it but it always amuses my non-fishing mates when they see it.......

    A original Daiwa Lochmor Z 10 ft 7 weight fly rod. I ordered it mail order only to discover that the shop had rung the amount on my card through incorrectly and charged me £13.30 instead of £133.00.

    A lovely vintage engraved Eaton & Dellar brass & ebonite salmon reel off e-bay for less than a tenner.The seller had listed it in a weird way meaning the serious collectors never spotted it. I found it purely by chance looking for something else & watched it like a hawk for a week before nipping in & getting it with the one & only bid. The seller was gutted but realised his mistake too late.
