This is my entry. The Snapies, They were the first lure to entice me to collect anything. I've learned a lot along the way and know now there is another 6 to find. The cone shaped Snapies came originally with the horse hair weed guards (in all 6 colors) and before they went to the coil (which are all synthetic), They were made with the cone both ways. I've still got my eye out for ones I don't have.

Pflueger Trade Minnows ++
The boxed Skilton was last year's best trash find and the Musky Minnow (field find) in red belly/brown back has mis-matched props and see through gem-clip hardware.

About 30 years ago, (before I was old enough to drive), my Aunt drove to John Shoffner's house back when he was doing his mailing list and I purchased this Pflueger Sign that he had in his basement for $50.00. That sign was the start of a 30+ year Pflueger collection, and I'm always looking for Pflueger blue border canoe boxes in Exc to Mint condition with their original lures.

In 1881 this is the very first bait made by Pflueger and probably the rarest Pflueger bait. It is referenced in The Pflueger book page 17

Three old Pfluegers.

A rare small size flying helgramite, a very nice Maybug retaining almost all its original paint with a luminous belly, and last one of my favorites a scarce Mumford hook and bait box advertising Pfuegers luminous bait is the best.

Tiny Halcyon Spinner, 1 1/8", cataloged in 1900, likely European made and sold by Pflueger. See Carter "19th Century Fishing Lures," p.177.
