Warman's Fishing Lures

Warman's Fishing Lures
Field Guide
by Carl F. Luckey and Clyde A. Harbin Sr. 

This pocket-sized edition of the massize 670-page Old Fishing Lures & Tackle: Identification and Value Guide, Sixth Edition is ideal for ready reference at tackle shows, flea markets, estate sales or auctions.

Artificial lures manufactured in the United States from the 1890s to the early 1970s are the primary focus of this guide, which covers the products of major lure makers like Heddon and South Bend as well as dozens of minor bait companies. Few flies or metal spinner type lures are included.

Illustrated with some 400 black-and-white photos, the text provides descriptions and pricing for approximately 1,000 old fishing lures. Here's an example of the listing for Roman Spiders (the photo is found on the Old Fishing Lure website):

These came along prior to 1915. The large (4 3/4") Musky size has no notched or split head as do the two smaller sizes. The Bass or Pickerel size is 3 1/4" and the Baby Roman Spider is 1 3/4". Most found have a crackle back finish. All will have string or twine legs or at least the holes through the body where they once were. Each has painted eyes. All are very scarce. $400-$500.
