Heddon Meadow Mouse Lure

The Heddon Meadow Mouse Lure was first introduced in 1929. This Heddon mouse lure made in Dowagiac Michigan would last for more than half a century in the antique lure line up. This fishing lure the wooden enameled version is a series number 4000. This antique lure measures 2 3/4″ in length and was made of wood. The antique lure featured leather ears which are screwed into the bait and tail for life like decoration. The lure has black bead eyes, a pin inserted into the nose. The Heddon Meadow Mouse has a forward line tie attached below the pin and a scripted metal diving lip to help it dive down to it’s prey.

To catch its prey it employs the use of a double forward hook forward of the mid-line of the lure inset and attached with Heddon’s L Rig Hardware in the version below. The lure also had a trailing single hook just below the leather tail. The lure can be found with both stenciled and un-stenciled belly versions.

The Meadow Mouse was available in only a few colors, two of 3 which are shown in the catalog cut below, as well as in the galleries.
