Antique Lures




with approximate prices and photo examples

The definition of "miscellaneous" refers to the smaller companies other than Heddon, Shakespeare, South Bend, Pflueger, and Creek Chub. I collect these miscellaneous companies, but they are a bit difficult to identify as they usually didn't have the props or bodies marked very well.   I've included photos of the " types " of lures I seek.   These lures are hard to identify sometimes if they are not in the box, but I collect early lures which resemble the examples shown.  Please call or e-mail with descriptions of what you have.

This is a partial list of types of companies or lure I want to buy.  They are listed with the page number in Carl Luckey's book version 4 and Karl White's most recent book with approximate prices (price will vary with condition and boxes and usually much more than White's):

  • Abbey & Imbrie
  • Flood Minnow
  • Charmer Minnow Co
