Summary

Summary

Progressing from simple implements of bone, stone, and wood to metals to the elaborately feathered flies of the Victorian era, antique fishing lures are now sought as highly prized collectibles. This edition has hundreds of new photographs and much new information not included in the first edition. Chapters include the 'big ten' companies, miscellaneous lure companies, metal lures, handmade lures, and finally the seldom seen experimental lures. Concerned primarily with the most collectible antique fishing lures made before 1940, this deluxe hardbound book contains well over 1,300 lures beautifully reproduced in full color. Research and identification will be simple yet effective with these descriptions, sizes, dates, 2001 values, and quick comparisons of similar features of lures..
