We have been selling fishing bait in the Blue Springs area since 1975. We began as Billy Boy's Bait & Tackle located just west of our
current location. In 1980 we started construction on our own building and became Forty Woods...The rest is history.
Over our 35+ years in business, we have made thousands of friends and lost more than a few of them. Our photo links will take you back to a time when we were all younger and healthier and our friends were all still here with us. Our newer digital photos can be viewed at our "Online Photos Link" The early photos are all scans of old Polaroid pictures that were stapled to the wall and exposed to the elements. The quality isn't great but the memories are.
We have boxes of old pictures and it will take some time to get them all loaded. Check back from time to time and see if you know or remember someone. Some of the photos can no longer be read so if you see one without info, we would appreciate help identifying them. If you have any old photos relating to Forty Woods, we would love to scan them in also.
Thank you all so much for being a part of our Forty Woods family, we truly appreciate you all!
