Lamprey Terror Vintage Lure
The Lamprey Terror Vintage Lure was introduced in the 1950’s. The Lamprey Lure and Tackle Company made its home in Chicago like many other great lure companies. The companies lure portfolio was a pretty small one though making this large version and smaller baby version of the Terror. This plastic slab type lure has large bulbous eyes reset back towards the midpoint of the antique lure. The lure made of a single piece of molded tenite/plastic has a diving lip just below its head and forward line tie to break the water.
The Terror lure had two trebles secured with a simple screw eye rig. The larger version as shown below measures roughly 3 3/8″ in length. The lure had a patent applied for but I don’t believe they were in business very long based on the frequency of which theses neat little miscellaneous lures show up. The lure touted to be successful for all game fish, from Muskie and Pike, to Walleye and Trout. This unique lure has with its its correct Box and Insert Paperwork making it the complete package.
