Older & Newer "Type True To Nature Boxes"
Most lure enthusiasts have seen tons of the square top lime green & white Creek Chub “True To Nature” fly rod lure boxes. When the factory was closed c.1978 an untold number of these were thrown out then salvaged by astute collectors of old tackle.
Many don't realize there is an OLDER variation of this box. A close comparison of the two pictures readily shows the difference. The early box has “True to Nature” in much smaller lettering than the later box. Also, there are three VERTICAL lines on each side of “True To Nature” but NO horizontal lines. The later box has vertical AND horizontal lines. Also, the early box is more likely to have the lure number stamped on the side whereas the newer box may be from the salvaged boxes that were never used.
