Hi everybody!

New guy here, well for a certain reason, diemai pointed me to this forum from a german one where I was asking about some lures...looks like I could get my answers here.

I got an old box of lures and other stuff because the owner, who just got it days before from someone else doesn't use'em and seemed to want to get rid of'em. He didn't want to tell me from who he got it, maybe somebody in his family died or couldn't get any information from him. Mostly pretty usual stuff, but kinda old...DAM Damyl/Spinnfix Spinners, old Veltics and stuff like that. So I could roughly narrow down the time they were bought to the late 50s and early 60s (at least I think so, I'm not a collector or enthusiast like you guys here seem to be). But then I found some "strange" lures I had never seen around here with an even stranger set of hooks. That made me curious and finally led me here...

diemai already told me in the other forum that this might be Flatfishs, but I see some differences...


- color seems a little different
- middle hook "spacer" or whatever this is called is bend slightly different
- no markings at all (no letters, numbers, nothing)
- the "lip" is bent inward, pictures of wooden Flatfishs I saw here look like it's straight

additional info:
- made of wood
- white ground coat
- hooks might all be changed (changed one myself on the small one)
- it's a 2€ coin for size comparison, diameter is 25,75 mm (~ 1.01 inch)

Maybe you can tell me if these are Flatfish? Or were ever built under contract in europe? Copied in europe? Copied anywhere else and sol in europe?
Any hint/info is welcome!

Thanks in advance and best regards
