Deiter,
Whilst I retain some reasonable cognitive ability even as the years advance (too quickly I may add), I fall back on my reference books.
For the US stuff, I have a few of Russell E Lewis's excellent books on early collectible lures going back to the 1930's, a dedicated Heddon book also by Lewis, an English collectors book that isn't 1/2 as good, but handy for some of the popular devons, and for the Aussie lures I rely heavily on Frank Prokop's (jigmaster in here) fantastic titles as well as some old 'how to fish with lures' type books and a bunch of magazines going back to the early 1960's.

So while it may look like I have all these facts rolling around in my head, there is more an index of where I might find the relevant facts when needed.....and of course where would any of us be without the wonderful information at our fingertips on the "NET".
I have answered many questions in here and of my own by doing some concerted 'yahoo searching'

@ fishaholiclures

As a pure collectors book I only own "Old Fishing Lures And Tackle " 5th edition , by Carl F. Luckey , an American issue .

Since I am not a lure collector in the sense of the meaning , I just mailordered it from England years ago out of curiosity about those ancient lure models and as a reference to make knock-offs of one or another model , because I wanted to know , how they would act in the water .

I also own a few more English and American books , of course some German issues as well , but these are rather more dealing on fishing methods and luremaking , only one English book , the "Enceclopeadia Of Lures" , by Chris and Sue Harris(they run a tackle mailorder , the "Harris Angling") , is a list up of common lures on the market back in the days of its issue in 1999 .

There are colored tables of all lures listed and thorough describtions about colors , sizes and how to use them the best way .
