The New Jamison STruggling Mouse Lure Circa 1917 Recreation
Fisherman found out a long time ago that a field mouse took an awful chance if he went for a swim accidentally or otherwise where a game fish of goodly size lurked. The new Jamison Struggling Mouse within sight. For years we have had with us the imitation mouse a creature which in the showcase of the tackle store matches the appearance of the live beastie with lividity but is fearfully dead in the water. And as a general thing we believe no self respecting black bass is fond of the cold storage mouse.
Here is an imitation that is something like. True he is made of wood with a double fishhook for a tail nickel plated ears and sports another double hook in place of legs but if he is chock full of pep. He is a regular little water rat with a swimming motion all his own. If you are familiar with bait casting plugs you know he is of the variety that float on the water when at rest and dive and wobble when reeled in or trolled by the caster. We figure that Jamison’s Struggling Mouse will find a lot of takers not onlv among fishermen, but also among fish. Price 65 cents.
