Early L Rig Bomber - c. WW2

Post by MXB » Mon Sep 21, 2009 11:03 am

Hi all. . .

Here's an early Bomber lure from around WW2 era with L Rig hardware. They have a wider bib as the later models had a slimmer bib and frog finish is very nice with some minor cracking on belly but still very nice considering age. Highly collectible lures and not cheap.

Check it out;

That means your old Bombers aren't that old then lol lol

And a few other manufacturers had L-RIG hardware in the early days apart from Heddon . . . L- RIG Bombers were around for a short time only and their earlier lures are rare like Pearl Bombers(no eyes) and Victory Bombers(morse code for victory as paint job)

Cheers Dave and thanks for the reference . . . they are really uncommon and they look great.

Don't worry as you teach me much more about lures than I am able to show you clapclap clapclap

Time limits how often I get on the NFLCC site. I think I need to join as an international member
