Getting back to the video that Andy posted and Daves link about the amount of money he has won in comps. I wonder how often he threw hard baits on the Bass tours as opposed to soft baits? Slightly off-topic in given with the thread title, but hard baits are fun, soft baits less so. :grin:

Ok, the low and slowwwwwwww, centos sticks, neds etc. God, I find that hard work, but fishing for cash is that the way forward now? I'll admit when I watch the Bass guys if they show how to use the ned etc I glaze over.

The acid test for me Jason, with any lure, is how I feel should I lose it.

With almost any jig or soft bait, it's loss means no more than the consumption of any easily replaced consumable. Next to nothing.

On the other hand, I lost an XRW Heddon River Runt Spook sinker last week and it's still niggling me, even as I type. :cry:

That's the difference - and why there will never be a "Vintage Senko Stick Porn" thread. :pipe:

John,

What I was getting at, and I do not particularly explain myself well at times I'll admit. I don't think for one minute the old lures get thrown often if at all in Bass comps. But in this day and age is it soft baits over hard baits that pull in the dollars for the major stars? I see so few people using small hard baits for Perch on Youtube for our Perch. And I wondered if that was the same in the states? Perhaps that's a thread for the lure section of the forum. Sorry you lost your lure. :grin:

I've been a bit quiet on the vintage lure front recently, but that doesn't mean I haven't been getting a few! :pipe:

My South Bend fly-rod lure collection got a welcome boost over the last few weeks with a bunch of 'Trout-Oreno' and 'Fly-Oreno' additions. These are all pre-WW2 baits, with a few of the top ones ('no eyes') getting on for 100 years old! :cool:

'Rublex' spinners were always a familiar sight in tackle shops when I was a youth, so I've collected a small archive of pictures of their eye-catching counter displays - mostly from sale sites like eBay.

It seemed to me they were always slightly in the shadow of their French cousins Mepps, but the Rublex 'Ondex' and 'Voblex' gave them a good run for their money as firm favourites with UK pikers.

Love those. Many of the displays were as cool as the lures themselves. Those Voblex were very popular around here for pike back in the day :thumbs:

When I found the Anglers Mail pages posted in the Old Imagery thread there was a 1975 Gudebrod catalogue I can't remember acquiring hiding behind it. Thought it more suited to this thread.

I`ve seen another that isn`t in that catalogue Dave, the Nimble Nose, which is basically a walk the dog Sniper with no lip. I`ve no idea about the history of Gudebrod lures so it may have been introduced after that catalogue came out, or for a limited market? I`m sure John`ll know :grin:

There are a few of the baits featured in that catalogue on ebay at the moment, but the smaller versions...

Going to nick all those pages :lumby: :thumbs:

:grin: (I don't have a 'Bippie' or a 'Nimble Nose')

IMG_20210305_102930~3.jpg
These are all small ones. The big versions are all in my 'user' boxes. :pipe:

My best fish on a Gudebrod is this one - off the top on a big 'Trouble Maker'. Caught loads on Snipers too over the years.

Thought you might like the catalogue, John. :wink:

If anyone would be interested I could scan the catalogue, or a few pages of it, as a better 'collector's copy image or PDF.

The photos you put up are pretty good Dave :thumbs: The reference information is all there - which is the most interesting thing, for me at least.

People do collect old catalogues though and I have a few myself, although not a collection as such.

I got a few of those Gudebrods from Gerry Savage, who I met a couple of times to do interviews on his BBC radio fishing programme. He brought a big box of lures with him the second time we met and I bought the lot off him! :grin:

No probs. But if you'd like larger, more legible copies I can mail you bigger pics.

Sounds to me like Mr Savage sussed you out at the first meeting as a potential sucker buyer for his lures!

I've been watching this item for the last few days. I thought it might make a nice 'companion piece' for my collection of Phantom Minnows.

It's a copper printing block for an early nineteenth century catalogue or advertisement from W. J. Cummins of Bishop Auckland.

It started at a tenner, but finished at £117.50! I'm not really surprised as it is a fantastic old object. :cool:

(Of course, I've got one in my collection - although mine is a Cummins 'Wye' pattern Phantom. :pipe: )

If anyone would be interested I could scan the catalogue, or a few pages of it, as a better 'collector's copy image or PDF.
The photos you put up are pretty good Dave :thumbs: The reference information is all there - which is the most interesting thing, for me at least.

People do collect old catalogues though and I have a few myself, although not a collection as such.

I got a few of those Gudebrods from Gerry Savage, who I met a couple of times to do interviews on his BBC radio fishing programme. He brought a big box of lures with him the second time we met and I bought the lot off him! :grin:
I`ve got quite a few old lure and tackle ads. Would it be worth starting a new thread so we could post them all in one place? :shrug:
Good idea Mark! :thumbs:

I now wish I'd kept my ABU Tight Lines circa 1969 - 74....

These are all small ones. The big versions are all in my 'user' boxes. :pipe:

My best fish on a Gudebrod is this one - off the top on a big 'Trouble Maker'. Caught loads on Snipers too over the years.

Thought you might like the catalogue, John. :wink:

ABU Tight Lines? I'll get the camera out later! Only 1980s I think.

I`ve got `78 and `79 Tight Lines catalogues. 1980 is quite a popular one (salmon on the cover) as i think it marked the introduction of palming sideplate ambassadeurs. I`d be interested in seeing pics from that one if you have it Dave. The thicker version of the `83 (i think) catalogue was decent too, had some interesting articles in, including one about Lomond, from memory... :pipe:
