New Fishing Lures

REVISED POST: 5 Feb 2010 -- Hey, I started a new site called, "Sounds Like a Fish Story To Me." I hope you like it!


Christmas Lures
The great thing about fishing lures is they make excellent gifts. Need a graduation gift? How about a Rattletrap! Somebody's birthday? A Crankbait is your best bet. Anniversary? I'd go with some Panther Martins! And for Christmas? Anything goes!

This school of fishing lures came from Steve and Julie! They knew I was Hooked on Lures, so they got me some -- along with this note from Julie:

"As a child, I fished with my Grandpa in the Ozarks of southern Missouri. All we ever used for bait was live minnows. I couldn't figure out how to wrap those, so I got you these. Hope they'll do. -- Julie"

Of course they'll do -- in fact, they're great! I added them to my Hooked on Lures collection, where I'm hoping to collect lures from each and every state.

Want to help like Julie did?

Send me your tired, your beat up, your old and half-forgotten lures -- one will do -- that are just cluttering up your tackle box. Not only that, but write down what the lure is used for, how to use it, or maybe even the history of that specific lure, and I'll put it all together on my website, with pictures, footnotes and a lot of whatnots, and boy won't THAT be exciting reading!

Think of it as stamp collecting, but with Crankbaits and Rattletraps.

Except for postage, I'm not asking anyone to spend a thing on these lures. What fun would it be to get a new lure from a Wal-Mart in South Dakota?

So, friends and neighbors, if you know of somebody who lives outside of Texas and is willing to mail a lure for this collection, feel free to put in a good word for me and ask them to start digging in their tackle box.

All you have to do is send me an email saying you're interested in sending me a lure, and I'll send you my mailing address. Until then, Happy Fishing!
