Re: (Vintage) Lure Porn

For American lures Tom, any of the various editions of 'Old Fishing Lures and Tackle' by Carl F Lucky.

I've always favoured shorter handles and off the peg rods always had handles more suited to chimpanzees. In more recent years, rods are showing signs of being designed by people who actually use them. f*...
