HC&M: Holgate #200 "Fishing Game", missing pole

Collections Online->Antiques ->Toys ->Holgate

Name Holgate #200 "Fishing Game", missing pole

Catalog ID HCM5490
Description Set of three wooden fish, with a cloth shoulder bag. The simple fishing pole is missing, but the set looks otherwise complete.

Fish have metal eyes, and are hand-numbered on their plugged weight-holes on the bottom:
2 (red)
4 (green)
6 (blue)

Bag is white, with blue print, and badly worn red trim. Two fish are pictured on the flap, and the body says "HOLGATE | Jr. Fisherman". The shoulder strap is standard tri-color pull cord of the era.

This toy appeared in both the 1940 and 1941 catalogs, but this bag design was only in the latter. This appears to be an update to Holgate #201 "Fishing Game".
Year circa 1941
