No doubt you saw this big Tiger John, it realised a very good price :-

Will.
Yes, I was watching that one Will :thumbs: It was a beauty! I wasn't surprised it topped £100. I didn't consider bidding though, as I've already got this one - not with that same lovely scaled Hot Tiger finish, but close enough :pipe:

(Mark will be pleased to know I'll be fishing this one, but I'm waiting for some lead wire to weight it's new hooks to calm it down a bit. It currently a bit too wild and shallow for my liking).
Nice pattern that John :thumbs: You could get away with upping the size of hooks slightly on that without them becoming OTT, which would do the same job as the lead....neater too :smile:
:thumbs: They're just the hooks it came with Mark. I swapped them for size 1 Gamakatsus, but it had a horrible shallow, wildly slashing wobble with those too.

(The older Big Tigers had heavy wire galvanised hooks, like the ones on MagTad's, so they're designed for weighty hooks).

I've just got this old warrior for just a few quid, which might just be waiting for me when I get home. It's a very early plug, perhaps over 100 years old, from the Hastings Sportings Goods Company, Hastings, Michigan. It's their famous 'Wilson Fluted Wobbler' patented by Richard T. Wilson in 1913. A bit of a 'beater', but a nice and rare old bait nevertheless! :pipe:

John , were these reproduced commercially in later years .
I have something similar , but only one belly hook .

Nice lure Pat. :thumbs:

I think you're right about it being from a different maker. It's a fluted wobbler type for sure, but the flutes are much shorter than a Wilson. I've seen them before, but don't know who made them commercially.

Cheers John , I`ve had a few on it .... It`s got a walk the dog action , breaking the surface now and again .
Or it can also be used as a pullbait , like a very buoyant Burt ...

I went to a local Car Boot for a couple of hours this morning. Not expecting to buy much, other than a few records (and did buy a couple) but I am always on the lookout for old fishing gear. Just when I was giving up on finding any, I found a guy with a few old rods and quickly had to compose myself as there was a fabulous split cane carp rod lurking among the old tat. (However, more of that later on a different thread :grin: ).

Moving on to the only other stall with any fishing gear, it seemed to be mostly cheapo reels and match gear, but there were a couple of boxes of newish lures of questionable quality and optimistically high prices, so was not expecting much. Still, you have to rummage don't you? :pipe:

£25 for that lot mate, the guy says - hold on, I've got a few more to chuck in. And then, while he's finding yet more dodgy-looking Chinese rubbish, I spotted something out of place - a couple of dull, diirty old spinners . . . . .

I'm just looking for little perch lures I tell him, wearing my best poker face. "How much for these two"? £4 he replies. "Take £3"? I ask. :pirate:

20190630_140714.jpg
Top: Silver plated Victorian Allcocks 'XX' (Double quality) 'Hog Back' spoon. :grin:

Bottom: A really rare old lure! :yahoo:

A 'Talbot Patent' Spinner. These were patented by Lieutenant Colonel Johnston Stoney Talbot in 1904 and were licenced to a few different companies (mainly Allcocks, who listed them as the No. 5315 'Bee' Spinner). After cleaning it, I discovered that my one is stamped Hardy Bros. Alnwick! I've never seen one, either Allcocks or Hardy, ever come up for sale. :grin: :grin: :grin:

This particular one has been very kind to me so far Will! :thumbs:

(It probably won't last . . . . :smile: ) Still, it keeps the interest up! :pipe:

Just before I went on holiday, I had this little corker delivered!

It's a vintage South Bend 'Nip-e-Diddie', in a box marked "New Firelaquer Finish". This dates it to 1950, the year that South Bend introduced their new range of florescent colours.

We used to sell modern 'Nip-e-Diddies' back in my TG Lures days, although by that time South Bend had been taken over by Luhr Jensen and they were fitted with trebles rather than the original old-style doubles.

Some more boxed 70's classics, as featured in Barrie Rickards and Ken Whitehead's 'Plugs and Plug Fishing'. Still a favourite book, albeit rather dated (a bit like me! :red: ).

I was particularly pleased to find the old 'Flashad'. :cool: I suspect these originally came from Ken Latham's of Potter Heigham.

Old Colorado Spoons are not very rare baits, made in their many thousands since 1878. But to find one with a maker's stamp makes a world of difference!

Had this one delivered today, a large size (2 1/2') heavy guage Colorado, bearing the nice, clean strike of Henry Milward & Sons of Redditch. One of the oldest names in fishing tackle (established in 1730) and like so many of the old Redditch firms, originally a needle maker. What a cracker! :pipe:

A very nice surprise arrived in the post this morning from the very generous Mr Houghton! :handshake:

Mark had told me he was kindly sending me a South Bend 'Woodpecker', after we'd exchanged a few messages and this great #925 'Midget Woodpecker' duly arrived. These were made from around 1910 to the mid 1930s and are a classic early plug :cool: A very welcome addition to my vintage South Bend collection! :thumbs:

20190706_134204.jpg
As if that wasn't brilliant enough, also enclosed were these two. (Rather spookily, I've recently been thinking about the Heddon 'Commando' and then this one turns up 'out of the blue'!).


Heddon Commando #2020 (1968 - early 70s) in 'GOG' orange goldfish:
20190706_141806-COLLAGE.jpg

Snapdragon 'Sprite' (Pattern no. 79, Silver Sprite).

Many thanks indeed mate, you're an absolute star! :grin:
