Artist's Description

The Atom Mfg. Company was located in Attleboro, Massachusetts, USA, where this wooden, lure was made around 1945. This type of lure is called a swimmer and typically rides below the surface of the water. The company turned to making plastic lures around 1948.

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.
