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 The lures were originally made by hand in the Heddon family kitchen located in Dowagiac, Michigan, but by 1910 there was a new factory in Dowagiac and expanding sales.
Sinking lures. These are perfect lures for deep-water fishing, where you can establish a preferred depth where the trout will strike the lure. The preferred depth is established by a counting down prior to the retrieval process. The same depth can then be applied in other casts to locate the school of trout. The distance of the sunk down lure within a given time is known as the sinking rate of the lure, which suggest the depth or distance of the fish location. Soft baits. This type of lure is made of soft rubber and comes in a wide variety of forms and shapes, with attractive marching colors and sizes. It is suitable for saltwater and freshwater fishing. Soft baits can be used on weighted jig heads applied in the same way as the jerk bait providing a plug is used. Jerk baits. These are passive or still lures that do not move by it self but should be made alive by the angler. Motions are created by shaking or jerking the fishing rod, or any movements that make the bait look alive. As far as it can go, the jerking of the lure can imitate a wounded or injured fish which is quite tempting for the trout fish.
The Flutter Bug Spinner is also a weighted lure with the same type and size of blade as the magnum spinner. But the weight bodies are brass painted, so it gives a darker impression. The darker lure colors are good for clear water fishing, while the brighter colors are good for night fishing. Another popular lure is the spoon lure which is imitating a small bait fish instead of a fly. The well known Little Cleo is a fantastic trout fishing spoon lure. The water vibration creates the natural movement of the imitated bait fish. Spoon lures are available in two major colors, gold and silver, although there are other color selections which I do not recommend
KickTail Minnow - This fishing lure mimics the motion of a real fish so realistically eight professionals couldnt tell the difference between it and a live shad when it "swam" toward them on retrieval. This lure is definitely the "newest" lure being outlined in the article, but is nonetheless extremely effective as a lure for fishing (especially where live shad are present in the water you are fishing). Original Rat-L-Trap - Bill Lewis legendary invention, the Rat-L-Trap, is recognized as the most popular, and consequently, the most imitated lure over the past 35 years. Todays Rat-L-Trap is proven by leading experts to produce sound qualities nearly identical to those of schooling bait fish under attack. These sounds are the "Dinner Bell" for predator fish and is certainly one of the most popular lures available to anglers. The most popular lure for fishing is probably impossible to determine, but there is little doubt that the answer to this question lies among the preceding choices. If any of these lures arent a part of your fishing arsenal they should be added sooner, rather than later.
