One of the first bait casting lures placed on the market for use with the short rod having been a Shakespeare, it is not surprising to learn that one of the newest of these lures called the “Hydroplane” is meeting with much favor. Although of the familiar imitation minnow type and made to float when at rest on the water and dive when rccled or trolled, like so many others of the modern school, it has an individuality of its own which seems attractive to anglers as well as to bass and pickerel. It has a metal plane inserted forward making it look like a miniature shark with a sheet of tin in its mouth. This plane may be adjusted by means of a set screw to make the bait dive deep or shallow as do sired and according to the rate of speed in recling it in. The plane is sufficiently large to enable the caster to get his bait down six feet and more below the surface if he desires. Finished in eight different color combinations. Price 75 cents.
