One of the first things a person new to the world of vintage fishing lure collecting will hear about are the so called "Big 5" companies that dominate the news about the pastime. Knowing who these companies are (or were) and a little bit about them will go a long way towards alleviating any fears of someone new to the hobby who is feeling intimidated by all of the information available online. The Heddon Company was created by James Heddon, the man who is given credit for the invention of the first artificial wood fishing lures in 1894. The often repeated story is that he had his light bulb moment when he tossed a hand carved wood plug into the waters of the Dowagiac, Michigan mill pond and watched as a bass struck it. With this insight an industry was born. The original lures were frogs hand carved from broomsticks by Heddon himself. The lures were originally made by hand in the Heddon family kitchen located in Dowagiac, Michigan, but by 1910 there was a new factory in Dowagiac and expanding sales.
Arbogast Hula Popper - The Hula Popper has been around for more than sixty years, and many anglers swear by its pulsating skirt for attracting hungry predatory fish such as bass. This top water lure is deadly when "popped" over weed beds or submerged timber. This popular lure is one that every angler should have at their disposal. Rapala Fat Rap - This fishing lure is made from balsa wood and manufactured by Rapala, one of the most well respected names in the fishing lure game. When crank bait anglers encounter open water and weary fish, they can reach for their lightweight outfit and tie-on a Fat Rap. The tight swimming action of this balsa lure has been proven to be effective for many species of fish in various fishing situations.
Top Water Fishing Lures - Top water fishing lures are just what the name suggests...fishing lures that are fished on the surface, or top, of the water. These fishing lures can imitate wounded bait fish, frogs, or even small mammals. Ive always had success with frog imitation poppers and minnow imitation top water plugs such as the Zara Spook. A great tip for fishing top water lures is to do it when the water is as calm as possible, the more the surface of the water is like glass, the better top water fishing lures will work. Spinners & Spoons - Im grouping spinners and spoons together because I believe they are in the some family. The both imitate baitfish (for the most part) and can both be quite effective as fishing lures. The two most popular versions of spinner and spoons are probably Rooster Tails for spinners and Daredevils for spoons. A daredevil spoon in the colors red and white have long been known as a great pike bait. Rooster Tails are wonderful for trout and smallmouth bass fishing. Are spinners and spoons the best fishing lure? Thats for you to decide...
One popular lure is the Panther Martin which is actually a spinner lure, and since it has a little spoon on it, it may be considered as a spoon lure as well. Now, before you choose the right lure, I recommend you to inspect the spot where you are about to fish. If the trout in that spot typically enjoys nymphs, you should use the nymph lure. Likewise, if the trouts prey is silver fish, then you should use the silver blade lure for maximum results. You should even check under rocks or sinking logs to look for whatever trout prey is hiding down there. Then you can select the appropriate lures that can perfectly blend in with its surrounding.
