Buel Arrowhead Spinner Antique Lure
The Buel Arrowhead Spinner Antique Lure was originally shown in the 1852 patent. There were a few changes over time to the shape and make of the lure. In 1893 Buel re brands his arrowhead with a convenience feature. This antique lure has a deeper notch between the bottom arrows than the earlier version. The convenience was to be able to change the hooks and swivels out without the use of pliers. The Arrowhead was made in a many different sizes and can be found made of different materials.
In the Buel antique lure advertisement shown below this gallery this model was said to be made in 9 however we see more than that with the inclusion of the musky or large game sizes. The Buel name reaches deep in to American Fishing lore and history. In the ad it discusses how in 1834 JT Buel affixed a hook to a spoon that had a broken handle and created the his first fishing lure.
