Skinner Turkey Wing Ad
Since today’s motif is Turkey, I found this apropos.
This Skinner Turkey Wing Ad came from 1884. The Hibbard Spencer and Bartlett Company was a large seller of many items fishing tackle included.

Silver Plated Oval and Kidney Pattern.
These Baits are noted for superior workmanship and piscatorial success. The fluting beautifies, stiffens and preserves the shape. Each Bait is finely plated and mounted with first quality Scarlet Ibis, and other natural color flies, on the very best Brass wire, Treble hooks and Swivels making it the best trolling Spoon Now on the Market.
Nickled Plated – Oval Pattern Only.
These Spoons are mounted first quality feathered treble hooks and swivels and are all made with the same dies as these in Silver Plate, and will therefore be of standard size. Each Spoon will be stamped with the makers name.
