      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

What lure is this?

Recommended Posts

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.....................
