Vintage Fishing Lure - Gibbs Darter by 


Vintage (sometimes called antique) fishing tackle is a hot collector’s item and is only gaining in popularity. At the top of the list are old, wooden lures which are highly valued when in pristine condition. There are favorite colors, makers, and styles. Saltwater plugs have a serious and dedicated following. We enjoy these old pieces of history, but I differ from my husband in that I love the battered and worn ones that show the scars of battles with feisty fish and the handling by avid fishermen. I even have one I found on the beach that is barely recognizable. It may show up here sometime in the future as I am totally taken with it.

I’ve overlaid a photo of surf with the picture of the lure.

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.

    What a great closeup of this antique lure. Great Job.

  • These are fun. Most of my pictures are of lures somewhat bettered – I like them best:>). Thank you, Sandra, for both the comment and the favorite.
