William Shakespeare, Jr. founded his company in 1897 with a first product that wasnt a fishing lure. He started out with reels before expanding into the lure market. Shakespeare began making fishing lures around 1900 and the first catalog was issued shortly after that containing only four lures: the Revolution, Bucktail, Evolution and a Frog. The Shakespeare Revolution is one of the most collectible of the Shakespeare vintage fishing lures. Many of Shakespeares early products were rubber lures, including rubber frogs that mimicked real life motions of a frog when in the water. A very rare collectors item is the Shakespeare Tournament Casting Frog, which is a prize find for any vintage Shakespeare fishing lure enthusiast.
The most popular and frequently use lures are the spinners. Spinner lures are used with an open cast reel. The Spinner Flies, Magnum Spinner and Flutter Bug Spinners are the appropriate spinner types in the beginning of the season when ice has melted. The Spinner Flies are lures that use artificial flies as bait attached to a treble hook to its tail plus an attractor to catch the trout attention, namely the Colorado Spinner Blade The Magnum Spinners are weighted lures with an inline blade. It has a pulsating tube feather which is attached to a treble hook. The weighted bodies are painted that matches the color of the feather.
Talking about trout fishing lures, there are indeed the proper lures for different types of trout, this include the rainbow trout, brown trout, lake trout and brook trout. You will need also different lures depending on trout fishing location. This means that you should be prepared to use multiple lures. Bringing just one or two styles of lures will be insufficient. Other things to consider to using the right lure is the water temperature and clarity, underwater plant environment and sunlight which may alter in one given day. So, now we see the reason why there are a huge number of types and styles.
Once you know the various preys, their appearance and behaviors, you can create your own lures with materials easily obtained from sports or hardware stores or even from your junk drawer. You can even make your lures out of such common material as corks, buttons, odorless paints, plastic beads, propellers, rubber shags, and, of course, fishing hooks. Many fishermen avoid commercial fishing lures altogether. They look at fishing as an intricate art calling for their own intelligence and creativeness, for their own innate hunting skills which, like the fish, has a deep history, perhaps as old as a 100,000 years. One thing is certain when using fishing lures youve created yourself: youll feel the maximum joy possible when you get that first bite on a lure youve crafted yourself. Somehow, that fish will taste just a little bit better than all the others youve caught. Man over nature, with your own lure, it a seasoning like no other, aged a 100,000 years in the heart of man.
