Edgren Spinning Minnow Lure
The Edgren Spinning Minnow Lure was first introduced in 1904. The lure was made by the Edgren Manufacturing Company our of Chicago Illinois. This smallish metal fish shaped antique fishing lure was available in three different models and sizes. Sizes 1-3 were offered for sale, with Size 1 the largest, measuring 2 3/4″, Size 2 2 1/4″ and 3 at 1 1/2″ in length. While this antique lure. I almost wonder if the lures patents were not bought and it was brought back out of hiding in the teens. was said to have been made in 1904 up to the 1920’s, its not up until the mid teens we see it heavily advertised. The lure had the makers name and patent stamped into the spinner itself and had a single feather dressed buck tail. The lure is shown in its correct box which is harder to find than the lure itself like most antique lures.

The Edgren Spinning Minnow, better than any Spoon–Why? Because being minnow shaped makes it the natural fish lure. For Casting Or Trolling. Spins rapidly when drawn through the water making it look much alive. This minnow is patented on the merits of the minnow, not the hook attached to it. Any hook can be used, weedless, single or any hook you desire.
