Antique Lures
« on: July 30, 2004, 03:11:57 AM »
Well, I'm an antique lure collector (preferably Heddon, cause I believe the man was a, and I throw this out on all the fishing boards I'm on.....
If any of ya'll have any old plugs that you want some info it make, age, and value....let me have a look and I'll tell ya about it.
And ain't wanting to buy any (unless you have something I like and are wanting to sell... :wink: )...I just love (and I mean LOVE) talking "lure talk", this a hobby, if you will. I'd be happy to give you info on your old plugs. You'd be surprised how much some of them are worth. :wink:
Anyhow...part of my hobby (lure collecting) is identifying old, that's why I throw this offer out there. I really dig helpin folks that might have questions about theirs.

I bought a dozen old lures a couple of years ago at a yard sale, and paid 50 cents each, for a dozen of them. My wife thought I was crazy. Last week I traded them for a hundred dollar bill. Who's crazy? One of them was called a Paw Paw, a jointed frog, the first one I have seen.

My wife was cleaning out somebody's house and when she got to the basement, found a really old tacklebox and a couple of rods to match. The owner said they were left there by the previous owner and that she could have them if she wanted them. Long story short, she brought them home for me and upon doing my research, found they were made in 1964... one year after they stopped making these particular ones by hand. I still use them and they've worked well for me over the last few years.
When I was a child, I lived as a child. When I became a man, I put away my childish things and became a Gutpiler!
