Fishing lures

Saw these old lures at the Trader's Fair...thought they were a good photo for tonight.

We went fishing late this evening...Roger spent more time untangling one mess of mine than he did fishing.  I would have done it myself, but he knows how much I love fishing so he just gave me his rod and took mine.  I really don't know how it happened...I had just caught and released a bass, and started to wind the rest of the line in and boy, did I make a mess.

I caught another big crappie, but not as big as the one a few nights ago...and had another crappie on my line and lost my lure.  The crappie wrapped itself around a limb/small bush....and it got off the lure, and left my lure stuck in the tree.  It was a top of the water lure that had two treble hooks, so it got stuck good.  I have had it for years...not sure what it was called.

It was very much like this one...it has caught a lot of fish.  Mine was even light blue, with a white bottom.

Golly, you are an excellent fisher. You should enter contests. We have plenty around here.

I do think fishing lures can make an attractive picture. Years ago I made a friend a shadow box using different pretty tied flies. and a picture of him fishing in one of the corners boxes. Pretty neat I thought.

The Great Scot makes hand-tied flies; I framed several of them and gave it to my father, who always kept it on his desk. =)

What a good guy Roger is to untangle your line! He's a keeper!

I agree that the lures make an interesting photo.

My hubby still has all his dad's lures and others that he has accumulated. But he never goes fishing!

Well done you! I'm a bit of a disaster with fishing hooks. I've never managed to harpoon myself, but my little boy got one of his fingers mangled in the fishing tackle a couple of years' ago. Nothing serious, but it gave him a real fright. All the best, Bonny
