Ruby Tuesday Too

Here Fishy, Fishy

I have a small collection of antique fishing lures that I inherited from my Dad.  You can tell that this lure is old because the hooks are connected to the body with a metal fitting.  Most new lures are simply glued and screwed into the body.  The body of the lure is made of balsa wood, while most new lure bodies are some type of plastic.  I'm sure this lure has spent a lot of time in the water, but I have no idea how effective it was.  Now it's in it's own tackle box.  I sure it would be happier running through the water, trying to lure a fish to bite, but I won't risk losing it to some submerged obstacle.  It may not be worth much, but is is priceless to me.


  1. Yes, it's priceless to you and as it should be.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  2. Super looking lure. Very special.
    Happy anniversary too.

  3. ah, yes, Mr. Driller...anything at all that is left to us by those we love IS, INDEED, priceless.
    Hang on to that lure....pass it on to other generations. That's the kind of thing that makes us who we are today. :)

  4. I have never seen a lure like this one. Quite artistic.

  5. Oh it is beautiful. I love the little spinner at the head.
