General Notes: Creek Chub’s first lure. Originally thought to be produced c.1906. New evidence shows not made until c.1916. The early baits had three different types of hardware, no lip marking, a flat head, a double line tie, etc. It was later changed to a rounded head, single line tie &  improved lip.

Description of Pictured Lure:
A #100 Intro lure (pre 1920) in Chub finish. This finish is sometimes confusing because it was produced in many patterns and Chub color variations. This example has a thin unmarked lip, double line tie, bulging eyes, washer hardware, no tail cup, hand painted gills, thin treble hooks. Found  in a yellow Intro box w/ the original c.1917 one page flyer for this bait.
