Old and new in an ad in a trade mag. :grin:

I bet the new ones are made in China, not Redditch. (It would be nice to be wrong though!).

The second from left in the old illustration is the Allcocks 'Geneva' spoon, which was only made in plain nickel finish. Similar, but not the same as the new 'Long Spoon'. (The old names were so much more evocative. :pipe: ).

I fear they are no longer Made in Redditch, too. Odd they kept the Colorado and Norwich names but not the Geneva.

Ray Sheppard Drawings

Post by Bob Barker »

As normal, looking for something else and found these, they are prints or photo copies I got In the late 1980s I seem to recall, :scratch: two seen to be missing.
I also had a set all framed at some point, but now only one adorns the "den" wall, the rest will be still in a box somewhere. :shrug:

Raymond Sheppard (1913-1958) was a very talented artist, :thumbs:
https://www.raymondsheppard.com/works__ ... 9__r__.htm

These are from,
HAMPTON ON PIKE FISHING by J[ohn] Fitzgerald Hampton London & Edinburgh:W & R. Chambers Limited, 1947
and also used by Leader magazine in an article by Jack Hargreaves called "Profile of the pike" in November 1949
All this info and more at,

:smile: Check out some of Ray Sheppards other work John, he was very prolific and diverse illustrator.
This blog has got most of his work covered,
http://raymondsheppard.blogspot.com/sea ... hes%20Fish
Very comprehensive list down the right hand side. :thumbs:
He is well/best known for his illustrations of Ernest Hemingway's novel The Old Man and the Sea.

But it was this book...
TAM TAIN'S TROUT BOOK by Tam Tain. London and Edinburgh: W. & R. Chambers, 1947.
http://raymondsheppard.blogspot.com/sea ... hes%20Fish
...and Ray Sheppards illustrations within it...

...that fired up my youthful imagination and helped set me on that never ending path to become, "An Angler". :laughs:

I'm reading a book at present about Lefty Kreh and in that he mentioned this man. Jason Lucas.

That led to a trawl about online about Bass fishing with lures in the states from the 1940s. Some interesting stuff out there.
