Kurz Buck Skin Lure

Kurz Buck Skin Lure

The Kurz Buck Skin Lure is over 100 years old. Given that it is a piece of folded rawhide it looks pretty darn good for being over the century mark. The Kurz Bros. Co. were based in Chicago, Illinois @1369-89 North Branch Street.and during a time in the mid teens where lure inventors experienced making lures our of everything from glass to metal it would only be logical the someone would choose raw hide.

The Kurz Buck skin lure is essentially a folded piece of rawhide. The lure claims that when fished it has a lifelike softness. The antique lure was made in three different sizes, two of which are shown below. The lure was painted in three different finishes as well, Silver , Gold (Shown Below) & Brown (Shown Below). The Buck Skin Lure uses a steel rivet to hold the pieces together, and small weight inserted between the two layers on the bottom. The lure has a single upwardly turned fixed hook midway on the top portion of the lure.
