RE:Old Lures


Nice lures and pictures. I wished you showed the "Dope on the bottom of the box" for the Fred Arbogast JitterBug.

Actually I believe the Creek Chub lure was a very popular Striper surf lure at one time.

I wouldn't, but if you want to part with them I know a guy who buys old lures. He has a fishing room at his house thats like a old tackle museum. There is a URL out there that will gives prices on antique lures if I can find it I'll send it along. Found em.

RE:Old Lures

By the way, even though I recomend you keep them, I decided to give mine to a spin fisherman who had helped me our years ago on the Cape ,a local guy.

RE:Old Lures

GregO, You should save them because the value probably is not hugh and alot depends on the condition ,etc and scarcity. Even though you are a flyfisherman, they are great to the lore of fishing. Most lures are in the $30 to $60 dollar range, with very few above that... so I would recomend you keep them. They are not the value of an old cane rode or reel.

RE:Old Lures


Let's see how good my memory is. At "The Club House" I think I recall a display case on the wall to the left of the fireplace?

I guess my choices are:
(1) Do some E-Bay auctions & get some $$
(2) Clean them up & build/buy some sort of display case.

All of these lures are for Bass & Pike and I'm not a bass/pike fisherman. Hovever, they are some nice pieces & would fit with beach/fishing motif in my family room.

I guess I should also mention that the house I found these at was about 1/4 mile from the Concord River!

RE:Old Lures

Excellent Grego... I have some as you know.. and these are things that are great to keep especially in the original boxes. You can get a display case at the annual fishing collectable show(I can remenber when or where) and enjoy them in that arrangement.

Beautifully done, GregO! Glad you decided to post the link, these images remind me of the long standing legacy of angling creativity we are part of.

I'll keep my eyes open for old lures at garage sales!

RE:Old Lures

Makes me wish I'd taken care of and kept more of my old stuff!

Old Lures

This topic did not come out of nowhere. In the post "Smart Media Upgrade", we got off onto a tangent about Old Fishing Lures. Garo wanted to show an example of his Digital Camera's Macro capability, so he posted a link to one of his E-bay Auctions which featured a very nice Heddon Lure. This jogged my memorey, I had found an old tackle box in the basement of a house that I bought over 10 years ago. I kept this rustey box, which contained several lures. I recalled that one looked like the one in Garo's auction, so I went home & dug out the old box & found I had 10 old lures & 7 of them were in their orginal boxes. I bought a book (Carl Luckey) did some research & found that a few of them are fairly rare & sought after pieces of Americana. So go take a look.
