Hah thats brilliant!
Yours looks older than mine Martin, or maybe you've been using it?

Ive got so much stuff Ive collected over 50+ the years of traveling or living in various countries, literally boxes and boxes Ive never even unpacked between the various moves, thinking nows the time to dispose of it all.


:cry: well perhaps not quite all!
I've never used it Mike nor did the person who gave it to me Darren Lord he got 2 years ago because someone he knew had a caught a big fish on one out of Windy but there the story ends he didn't ever use his and had even less use for a spare so I got it !!....I have never wet it but it has got dirty and dusty hanging up in my workshop, probably I did have the packet it came in once but not now :sad:

Ah yes, gifted items of tackle.
In some countries is is considered polite to gift an item of tackle to angling friends you invite into your inner sanctum, your tackle room, it is how I came to own some of my most treasured items and I have reciprocated by gifting lures, rods and reels to those I can still call my closest friends.

FYI
This is the pack the lure came in.

I seem to remember mine came in a clear plastic tube but it might not have been the original packing.

No, I've not got a Rat Man Martin - it's the 'age thing' - too 'recent' to tweak my collectors instinct. My collection starts with 'nostalgic' - stuff I saw in tackle shops when I was a kid (so, over 50 years old). It's only a mere 50 year leap back from there to where my real fascination starts - antique items which are 100 or more years old.

The biggest buzz I get, is aquiring lures which are better than any I've seen in collectors reference books. Like this one, patented in 1911 :grin:
(The loose one is a beauty too, they're not usually found with their hook mount intact).

Nostalgia is what influences my collection too John....the lures and tackle I could never afford as a kid,but always drooled over in the local shops, and the lures that featured in the writings of lure anglers back then which i couldnt get my hands on. My interest doesn`t go back as far as yours, although I do appreciate the craftsmanship of the really old stuff :thumbs:

Im like you Mark.
Not much money as a youngster, watching older anglers use centrepins and cane rods then reaching a financial position where you can buy and use those items yourself, that is why I collect a few special reels.
Lures I have a love/hate relationship with, some Ive never use and some I use quite regularly, but those I hate are the lures I would love to 'try' but know I never will for fear of loosing or damaging them and the Rat Man is probably my worst example.
Cane rods are the same, I have a few but I know I will never use them.
A phycologist would have a field day with me.

My favourite is a reel, a model I sought for nearly a decade before finally buying, from the benefactor of a Will a totally unused model with all papers, correct packing and box, everything mint. And have used it ever since, its value is irrelevant, its the pleasure of using it that matters most.

I know where you`re coming from Mike :thumbs:

I`m quite fortunate regarding lures, as I can replicate the majority, even down to some of the paint jobs, so can use those instead of rare originals if need be, to avoid the pain of losses. That said, I cant think offhand of any old originals that I own at present, that I wouldnt use, at least in some circumstances. The ironic thing is, that as my tackle and lure collection grows, the opportunities to actually get out and use everything are less and less, and i dont get out fishing anywhere near as much as i`d like. The collecting side (and reproducing old vintage baits) does make up for it a bit though, and keeps me in touch with the sport when I can`t physically get out and fish. I`d love to go back in time with the gear and lures I have now though, when the fishing was better, and opportunities to fish were more frequent :grin:

When I managed fisheries I wouldnt fish much at all even though I had opportunities many would have given their right arms for.
When I did fish it was usually a survey rather than anything recreational, and I only did that to stop a few 'names' from squirming their way in by offering their 'services' to trial a water.
Now I have access to the type of fishing I love most and even with the free time to go whenever I wish I still find a couple of days a week is enough to satify the inner hunter that lurks within all of us.

Too easy to burn yourself out by going too often I think Mike. I`ve seen it happen with a mate, who wasn`t working so fished every day. Burnt himself out within 2yrs. Looking back, I`m glad circumstances prevented me going out all the time with him, or i`d have likely got bored with it too. As it is now, i think being so restricted keeps me keen, despite living in the worst possible area for predator fishing in the Uk (the NE). All the lads I used to fish with have either given up or gone over to carping now.

A mystery solved?

In Chris Sanford's excellent book 'The Best of British Baits' he says that if James Gregory had never made a bait, he doubts that he would ever have become a collector. I can understand why, as some of Gregory's creations are among the most beautiful metal lures ever created. However, he also made plain, simple baits too, such as Colorado Spoons (his invention).

Chris Sandford laments the lack of catalogue information on Gregory's baits, some of which are only known by name. He states: "There is so little picorial reference to Gregory's lures that items like the 'Oxford', 'Gresham' and 'Sportsman' baits may forever remain a mystery."

Helpfully, he includes some references in his book, including 'Fishing Gazette' reviews, such as this dated June 24, 1882.

One of these extols the virtues of Gregory's new 'Gresham Spinner' and says: "Mr Gregory has adopted the same kind of spinning fins as are used in the best Devon minnows and this fully accounts for the successful spinning of this bait, which is very nicely made and mounted".

Like this one?

If I'm right? :shrug:

It kind of makes sense though, that a 'lost' lure could be 'hiding in plain sight'. Without the card, it would be just yet another anonymous old 'slotted Devon'?

If it is the Gresham, it's a bit of an anticlimax really, as I expect most collectors would be hoping it might have been one of Gregory's fabulous 'jeweler's jobs'.

Everything about it fits the date though and the chances of there being two Greshams on the market at the same time seems unlikely, especially as all Gregory's lures were distributed by major tackle wholesalers (mostly Allcocks).

That one I've got is the smallest 'trout' size, only 1", but the fact it is still firmly sewn onto its card was a result! :pipe:

£8.90, posted :grin:

If a serious Gregory collector was fully convinced of it's provenance, the decimal point might shift a couple of places to the right. :wink:

Devon minnows (or 'Angels' or 'Totnes' minnows, as they are sometimes called, after one of the early leading makers, F. Angel of Exeter) have to be quite special before I am really interested in adding them to my collection. It's not that I don't like them, but they are often generic and anonymous and there are thousands of them on the secondhand/ vintage market. That doesn't mean there aren't some beauties out there - and interesting oddities.

This is probably my favourite 'standard' Devon - the Hardy 'Improved Pennel 1914 model'. They were available in left and right spin, a neat idea so that you could alternate during the day to counter line twist.

The largest, 3 1/2" size
Image
Another nice, mint 2" version
Image

Hardy's can be quite expensive, but there are lots of really nice ones from other makers that can still be picked up relatively cheaply.

Beautifully painted Hatton of Hereford 'gutta percha' Devons. Patented in 1908. These fragile antique baits don't often survive in such great condition.

Allcocks 'Feathero' minnows. Decorated with real feathers, cellulose coated and applied over a 'gutta percha' body. These date from 1927.

My latest impulse buy, stand me at just under £30. Some tat, but the two Krazy Kritters, Heddon Tiny Tad & Tiny Runt are nice - & I love the mini believer type ones, never seen any that small (2.5”) before.

Nice little stash of old baits there Jon. :thumbs: I think you've got three South Bend 'Fly Oreno' baits in there too, plus a small 'Snapdragon' (in front of the second little Believer).

The top wooden jointed plug is in very good collectible condition. (The tattier ones below it might be worth giving a coat of clear enamel, new hooks and a swim) :wink:

This may be a dumb question John but, did the tube have a purpose ? Could it have been an alternative way of mounting them perhaps, or a reservoir for an attractant ? Or am I missing the 'bleedin obvious' here.
Clearly Allcocks did not stamp their name on all their gear then.
Will.
Here's an interesting development on the Allcocks 'Roach Plug' Will. I've just seen one, in its original box, with a Devon type hook mount running through the alloy tube. There are no screw-eyes in it at all, either as hook hangers or for line attachment. No holes for them either, so they hadn't simply been removed.

As every other one I've seen has them, I'm now sure this was the original intended purpose of the tube, but that its use was quickly abandoned in favour of the more familiar 'plug like' hooking arrangement.

I can only think it must have been a poor hooker with just a single tail treble - or perhaps the tail was too prone to snapping off on hook up? :shrug:

I think that I might have seen that lure John, was it on eBay recently, not a good picture if I remember correctly.
Unlike you I never gave it a second thought, and as I do not need/want any more of them I did not pay much attention to it.
Well spotted sir, you are indeed the master lure geek or should I say guru of the Pit :laughs:

Who's still got one or two of these? :grin:

Apparently they've still got a bit of a cult following among the spotty bashers. You could buy them in plain yellow, to paint yourself - or already painted, like this one. Their great feature was that the fins could be twisted to 'reverse' the spin. Not a new idea (more of which later :pipe: ). The company also used to make small plastic toys and toy parts - I think for Dinky cars, or someone like that.
