Clinton Little Wonder Lure

The Clinton Little Wonder Lure is one of my favorites. This “Barber Pole” style lure was made by The Clinton Wilt Manufacturing Company out of Springfield Missouri. While patented in 1913, I believe the antique lure to have been around a few years preceding it based on the magazine articles available. This wooden lure measures 3 1/4″ in length. This antique fishing lure is made with a wire through construction. The lure features a three blade tail spinner which allows the body of the lure to rotate while the front spinner rotates in the opposite direction. There is a weighted keel which balances the lure and keeps it from twisting up the line upon retrieval.

The Clinton Little Wonder antique lure used both the 70’s and 80’s series of numbers to define its coloring scheme. Available in 8 different colors, the same as its larger brother the Clinton Wilt Champion.
