Eger Junior Dillinger Lure

The Eger Junior Dillinger Lure is part of a series of lures at the heart of the Eger antique fishing lure center. The Dillinger Junior lure is a model series 200. The lure first entered the market in 1941. It’s hard to think of Eger without thinking Dillinger in the same thought. I sometimes equate the as the Dillinger is to Eger, the Pikie is to the Creek Chub Bait Company. The Junior is a painted eye, wooden model that measure 3 3/8″ in length and has the shape of a tapering body shape. The lure like its older brothers has both a front and rear prop, utilizes screw eye rig to secure its belly hook and rear trailing treble. The antique fishing lure contains a single belly weight just forward of the belly hook to help it reach the depths of its prey.

The Dillinger is a fun lure to collect as there are many different sizes, colors and hardware variations to hunt down along the way. One of the toughest you will find for the standard colors is the Christmas Tree (Code 13) pattern shown below in the gallery. Not only is it in my opinion one of the toughest to find its also the best looking color. You can take a run through current and past auctions and you wont find this color on any Eger lure, let alone one in its correct box.

We have a Great Christmas Tree version as shown in on consignment.

The 1951 catalog cut below states:

A slightly smaller version of the Master Dillinger. Runs Deep or medium depending on the retrieve. Like it’s big brother, it’s a deadly killer. A line of casting bait that really takes bass and other fresh water game fish.
