"CreekSpeak" - Show 'N Tell

Series: #1900 Creek & River Fishing Lure

Years Produced: 1924 1933     Length: Listed at 2 3/4     Weight: Listed at over .5 oz.

General Notes: Overall rarer than the 5 hook #1800 series. #08 Rainbow mistakenly listed as #11 (a black & white color) in the 1925 catalog when CCBCO was trying to standardize all their color codes. A 1927 catalog shows the correct number. Produced in four colors. Has three double or treble hooks and two props. Shur-Strike baits were also made in this series. They are generally thinner & have different paint patterns. However, an expert should be consulted when purchasing this lure. 

Description of Pictured Lure:

#1909 in Brilliant Greenback. Without a doubt among the rarest Creek Chub bait casting series. It took over five years of aggressive searching to find my first example.
