This WD Chapman Minnow Propeller Definition proves that life was simpler back then. In a day and age where everything seems to be complicated from our fishing bots to the equipment installed upon them we have come a long way. These two ads from 1884 are amusing, as they use W.D Chapman’s lures to help define the word “Propeller”. These ads were found off the beaten path in a periodical called “Knight’s New Mechanical Dictionary, A Description of Tools, Instruments, Machines, Processes, and Engineering with Indexical References to Technical Journals.”

In the first illustration we see them use the Minnow Propeller to define: Minnow Propeller, a bait for trolling, having a bright spoon which rotates by contact with the water. Behind the propeller is a feather bait with hooks.

The Second uses Chapman’s Reversible Propeller or Double Bass Bait as we refer to it as; ┬áPropeller, A kind of trolling bait having oblique wings which cause it to rotate it in the water.
