Paul Bunyan lures

Post by MXB » Fri Jun 12, 2009 8:20 pm

Check these out . . . one of my personal favuorites . . . awsome showpiece lures in and out of the box. Paul Bunyan is an American folk hero who was a sort of pipe smoking, lumberjack type that typified American 50's culture and was promoted in the media in USA.

They became Paul Bunyan 66 feathered spinners

Paul Bunyan was a giant sized lumberjack who could harvest entire forests wih one swing of his mighty axe. His companion was a giant blue ox. They are prominent in folklore in Minnesota and its region which also made many different lures.

My favourite is the Weever - one of the Runt type lures with a series of ridges across the back.

Very nice lures and the packaging is great too!!

Yeh you are right they do look good the Weevers. It was funny the other night on a Simpsons re-run (and I never watch the Simpsons), there was an episode that caught my eye where Homer Simpson was a big dumb Paul Bunyan and had his companian blue ox which destroyed forests with one foul swoop. It was a tale recalled by a homeless man stowaway on the train and they referred to Minnesota!!

Paul Bunyan was bigger than I ever imagined!!

Back in the mid 1960's my parents took me to a small park in Brainerd Minnesota that was dedicated to Paul and Babe.

Since then the park got moved to east of Brainerd...and here's the website for the park...
