What lure is this?

8 posts in this topic

Does anyone know what vintage lure this is? It is made out of plastic and looks like it probably from the 1970's. There is nothing printed on the lure. Also, is it worth anything? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Mass production kills lure value. You won't find too many plastic bodied lures, which became popular around the 1950's and 1960's, that are of great value.

If you want to get started in collecting, look for wooden lures, class or tack eyes, certain makes and models, buy a book, go to an antique store that has a good collection, or just start by reading as much as you can on the subject.

Not sure what the lure is. Heddon stamps just about everything they make. A good lure antiquer could probably inspect the hardware-the hook hinges, eyelet, and propeller and tell you. Try finding someone on the internet in the NFLCC. Good luck.

I thought it kind of looked like a Heddon also. However, I looked at a catalog of some of their older models and could not find this one. There is nothing printed on this lure either. I think most Heddon's have something stamped on them. This one may remain a mystery.....................

    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.

    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
