Fishing Lures- Fly Fishing
Progressing from simple implements of bone, stone, and wood to metals to the elaborately feathered flies of the Victorian era, antique fishing lures are now sought as highly prized collectibles. This edition has hundreds of new photographs and much new information not included in the first edition. Chapters include the 'big ten' companies, miscellaneous companies, metal lures, handmade lures, and finally the seldom seen experimental lures. Concerned primarily with the most colectible antique fishing lures made before 1940, this deluxe hardbound book contains well over 1,300 lures beautifully reproduced in full color. Research and identification will be simple yet effective with these descriptions, sizes, dates, 2001 values, and quck comparisons of similar features of lures.. AUTHORBIO: Dudley Murphy decided to become a lifelong collector of fishing lures at the age of 13, when his grandfather presented him with a gift of old Heddon, Jamison, and Clark lures. As one of the three founders of the National Fishing Lure Collector's Club, Dudley is an active collector with a variety of interest, including fishing. AUTHORBIO: Rick Edmisten was introduced to fishing at age 12 by his father, and by the time he was 18 had developed a keen interest in collecting old lures and tackle. He has hosted a successful fishing tackle collectible show from 1990 to the present, and is recognized as an authority on old tackle. He often appraises estates and collections. REVIEW: This book focuses on the "big ten" companies, metal lures, handmade lures, and the seldom seen experimental lures, and emphasizes antique lures made before 1940. Each section begins with a short introduction about the company, followed by vivid, representative color photographs that the company made. Each photo lists the name of the lure, number, date manufactured, length, collector value, and any important notes or details about the lure.
