A flock of flocked finishes!

Post by loomis » Thu Jul 01, 2010 3:49 pm

With the arrival today of a Heddon 210 Surface Bait, in flock finish, my fine fleet of flocked finished fishing lures is finally at a fabulous five! (I tried to get more 'F's in there, but I was struggling!)

By what I can tell, this lure was first introduced in 1922, but didnt come out in the flock finish (GM - Grey Mouse) until the mid 1930s. So this could be the oldest lure in my collection! I will try to narrow down the date a bit more and get back to you. But given the two piece hardware on the front hook, I am confindent its around the late 30s' to mid 40s'. Fingers crossed!

Pretty good condition considering its age, granted, its missing its tail, but I know three other mice who wanted their tails chopped off crazysmilie

Looks like something you stick on the dogs head after a trip to the vets!

Great pick up. They certainly look good as a horde (had to Wiki to see what a group of mice are called ??? ) Hope they breed like mice for you.

Thanks guys...I think I have just unwittingly started a new target for my collection..."flock finish". Just when things were settling down, I had to go and do that.

@loomis . . .

Nice flocked mice and a fun target lure as they do come up fairly often but have never seen the other variations like the chipmunk pattern shown.
I have a few on the way to add to the collection thumbsupsmilie
