Donaly Redfin Lure Weedless Casting Bait
A weedless casting bait which seems destined to be popular where introduced is the Redfin Model illustrated herewith. Eastern anglers speak very highly of it. It is a floating bait, finished in white enamel with red striping, body is 3 1/4″ inches long, fins are nickle, hooks nickle plated, one weedless tail hook and a pair of detachable belly hooks not shown. The tail hook is “pivotally” connected to the body, riding in a slot in the tail, and is illustrated in the extreme hooking position. The body is weighted to float right side up, and the weight of the hook keeps it in the weedless position, the point being protected by the wooden tail of the body. A strike on the tail from a “short striking” or rear attacking fish forces the hook to instantly rise to the hooking position. The belly hooks are for side strikes. Price $.75 cents.
