Miscellaneous Antique Lure Makers

The Miscellaneous Antique Lure Makers section will no doubt be the biggest over time. This section will be the repository of all the other Antique Fishing Lure Makers that don’t have a specific page. While each maker is deserving of their own page as their lure, reel etc. contributions are no less important I have to draw the line somewhere to make the page easier to navigate. Just like today, artisan and craftsmanship of products and the makers of yesteryear are no different. The formula for being able to edge out a living, support your family, and peruse your passions in life is no different today. The recipe for success for artisans is still there, its just exponentially increased. Being able to wake up go to work, love what you do, and create something that you are gifted at is at the very heart or intent of this section. Each lure maker telling a story with their works, each different, yet the same.

A site note, Miscellaneous Antique Lure Makers have 25 articles per page so check the bottom to see if it continues on to the next page to enjoy more Miscellaneous Antique Lure Makers.
