Orchard Industries Slippery Slim Lure
The Orchard Industries Slippery Slim Lure is another lure in the trio produced by the company. Based in Detroit Michigan, on Morgan Drive, this famous antique lure maker was probably more noted for it’s “Action Rod”. The company founded in the late 1940s by co-owners Lewis Adam and A. Johnson. The Slippery Slim is the most obscure of the the Kick N Kackle and the Bottom Scratcher brethren. The antique lure was made in the early 1950’s and measure 2 3/8″ in length. The Slippery Slim was jointed in construction, its head being larger then the rear section. The lure has 2 trebles to secure its catch and a smaller diving lip attached at the nose to bring the lure down to the depths of its catch.

The Slippery Slim lure was housed in a clear plastic hinged clam shell box. The box will have the name printed on the bottom left.The lure was only made in a few primary colors unlike its brothers, such as the “Bottom Scratcher” which can be seen on the color Chart I did a post on.
