Vintage Saltwater Fishing Lure - Striper X Pert Surf Slapper by 

Vintage, also called antique, fishing tackle is a hot collector’s item these days. The saltwater lures (plugs) are eagerly sought after, especially in excellent to mint condition. I prefer those that show their age and the effects of battles waged with fierce fighting fish.

This wooden lure is called the Striper X Pert Flaptail. They were made by the Pt. Jude Baits in the 1940’s. The company was located in Rhode Island. More information can be read at

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.
