The orange/yellow Hi-Lo is a crappy modernish one. The others are pretty old - 1980s or earlier, Swedish made (it should be stamped on the belly).

The Hilo at the bottom is a newer one, late 80:s but still not made in Sweden. From The pics I can only say that the brown with dots (BO) is made in Sweden. That color was only made on Swedish made lures. The other colors was also on Asia made hilos.

Hi-Lo top to bottom

BO (Brown/Orange) 1970-1980 Made In Sweden
LYS (Luminescent) 1969-1989 Made In Sweden & Japan
OR/YE (Orange/Yellow) 1992-1995 Made In Taiwan
BO (Brown/Orange) 1969-1980 Made In Sweden
BGL (Bluegill) 1969-1989 Made In Sweden & Japan (also made in Taiwan & China)
B/LG (Black/Lime Green) 1992-1995 Made In Taiwan

Nothing unusual. The larger ones were introduced in 1969. Made in Sweden until 1980.

Looking at colour & scale pattern of BGL, early Swedish made/Swedish market only.

Nice. You know your hilos! As a Swede I have a big hate love relationship with that lure. As a fisherman I rejected it big time! But it was one of my first lure I collected. They as all abu’s is long gone by now. To mainstream for my taste.

Each to their own, as we say. I was catching on jointed hi-lo yesterday :)

Everyone beat me to it on the Hi Los! :laughs: :thumbs:

There's only one Creek Chub in the first picture (the second one down). That's a late model PRADCO version, so not really collectible, but with a secondhand value nevertheless.

The top bait is a Shakespeare (Paw Paw series) deep dive 'Pike Getum'. 1970s, wood, made in Hong Kong. They have some nostalgic appeal, but are not really collector's items.

The bottom two are not Creek Chubs either, but look at if they're based on the 800 series 'Giant Jointed Pikie'. (Those had three trebles). Nice looking baits.
