Antique Lure History Collage
While this Antique Lure History Collage isn’t very old all being published in 1986, the author took great care in inserting some wonderful “Easter Eggs” to find. This photo was taken from an article in 1986, from “The Florida Today” newspaper.
How many can you find? The Heddon Slope Nose or Heddon Expert lure, The JT Buel Spoon? The artist as well as author went on to speak of fishing tackle innovations throughout history. Annotating the first bone hook per say has been dated to at least around 20,000 years ago. Stating that even around 200 BC there are written accounts of an artificial bait used to “fool fish”.
