Creek Chub Tiny Tim Lure
The Creek Chub Tiny Tim Lure is a great little antique lure. The lure was Creek Chub of Garrett Indiana’s model number 6400. This small, pear shaped, painted eye, wooden antique fishing lure measures in a 1 3/4″ in length. This antique fishing lure was first introduced in 1941 and made it all the way to 1978, despite having a minor hiatus between 1955-69. The lure came with the normal patented diving lip, but for a small period when the deep diving lip was made available on the Tiny Tim. There are a few rare examples as shown in the gallery below that have no lip, or eyes. The antique lure had a single forward line tie, and a single belly weight to help it dive deep. Installed on this smallish lure were two treble hooks one forward of the belly weight attached via the typical Creek Chub Cup Hardware, the other secured by the rear inset cup hardware.
We have a Rare No Lip or Eye Variation in this weeks Consignments.
