*****Murphy and Edmisten's 2nd Edition book on antique fishing lures: "FISHING LURE COLLECTIBLES", pages. This is a beautifully photographed book with prices relative to very good condition, and some identification information. Excellent for early lure visual identification.   Open up any old tackle box found in the basement of your grandparents house, or at a local flea market, and you may strike gold. Some antique lures are collectible. The earliest, prehistoric lures were made of bone. China was the first civilization to make fishing lines (of silk, of course), to which they attached delicate bronze hooks. One of the founding fathers of the nascent fishing-lure industry in the United States was the son of a furrier named Julio T. Buel of Whitehall, New York. Between Wooden Fishing Lures: The Appeal of Floating Bugs for Fish. Antique fishing lures hold the secret to past fishing techniques. When you search for old wooden fishing lures, be aware that vintage wooden lures needed lead weights to sink them to the proper fishing level unless the conditions called for surface appeal for fish, such as in heavy rain conditions.

Vintage Fishing Lures. Fishing is a sport that has been traced back tens of thousands of years. Fishing lures have been around for as long, beginning as bone implements, moving to wooden and metal hand-crafted lures in colonial and pre-industrial times, and finally becoming today's mass-produced metal and plastic lure styles.
