I've been going through some of my family's stuff and I came across some more goodies.

Here is an old card that belonged to my grandfather Bill Nolan. It is an MSBA 70 pounder club card. Anyone (maybe older than me) have any details on that? It is not dated and I don't know when it was from.

Neat card,
The guy who gave your grandpappy the card from Mass bass is still alive and kicking
go to the mass bass show next year and ask him about it .
I remember John telling me something about a pin .....very interesting to say the least

Johnny lives in Somerville. Usually goes to the Derby and stays at the Basic Fishing Shack. You could probably get his contact info from BasicPatrick as well. That group is planning on being down there the first week of October.
Any relation to the other Bill Nolan???????? Two accomplished anglers with same name is quite a coincidence......

John Cherico is at the MSBA meetings in Quincy every month! Go by and see him??

Some time between 1962-1968.
John Cherico was the Club Pres. (1st time) in 1969.
I think he was sec. under my father Harry B. between 62-64. (or DeMasi, or McCarthy.
Nice Find
I remember these guys in the 60s - tough bunch - worked hard-fished hard.
Enjoyed going to your Grandfathers in Norwell with my Dad to go shopping for tackle.

I went there once when I was a kid to that barn in Norwell. I think it was 76-78 or so. I was 9-11. Went with some of my dads friends from the Savin Hill YC. I needed a spinning rod. Ended up getting an 8ft spinning rod for $10. I beat that thing up for years with blues and snagging pogies.

I can still remember that night though. Bunch of guys in a car, headed from Quincy to Norwell to go to (Bill Nolan's) barn and get some gear. Now when your a little kid going from Quincy to Norwell seemed like it was in Maine.......and going to a barn......when your a kid the things in your head are..... what is this. I can remember asking one of my dads friends if "this was the black market".

Now I live on the North River and fish some of the same waters that your Grandfather and you fished allot I'm sure. The fishing is still outstanding in the month of May into June.

I'd give up some body parts now to have some of those new in the box Gibbs or creek chubs I saw on the shelves in that old barn.

I used to go to 240 Old Oaken Bucket Rd. a lot. Always dealt with Eric's mom Nancy. Bought my first blanks there. It was a thread emporium. What a barn.

Luckily a lot of the old stuff in the barn survived and is with me.
I usually bring a portion of it (a couple hundred old plugs - mostly goo goos) and other memorabilia to plugfest each year if anyone would like to see them.

Thanks guys for the old stories. I like hearing about peoples adventures in the barn. I had a great time growing up there.

I have an interesting story, about 1987 I found case upon case of the old solid green and white atom poppers, swimmers and spook type plugs that came on the Atom display cards. I took them down stairs and sold most of them for about 3.00 each. I did hold on to a bunch since I thought they were cool, but would love to have cases of them now......

Another interesting find from the barn isn't fishing related but the floor in parts of the barn was "tiled" with old wooden road signs. I have a bunch that I pulled up and about a dozen that were extras which are in pristine shape. These are from rt 58, rt 123, rt 3 etc from the south shore. My grandfather must have made some deal with someone from the highway department.
