About this title


Classic Fishing Lures and Tackle is an entertaining general overview of the vast variety of fishing gear and memorabilia for all types of fishing. Sorenson provides historical background on the origins and evolution of fishing gear, their inventors, and the companies that produced them, including the classic manufacturers Heddon, Pflueger, Shakespeare, South Bend, and Orvis. He also offers tips on which items are the most collectible, and advice on where to find them. Complementing Sorensons easy-to-read text are Howard Lamberts intricate photographic stills, which raise the presentation of such items to an art form. Period ads, illustrations, brochures, and literature complete this look at a popular hobby.
