Early "Fly Rod" Metal - Craftsmanship From Over A Century Ago

I am always looking for more to add to this collection, which consists generally of the smallest size of any metal lure that was introduced at least 100 years ago

Two Wright McGill Whirlwind Spinners with the most amazing boxes. Small is really an understatement for the baits and boxes. The orange box stands 1 3/4 inches while the white / light gray one stands a mere 2 inches. The Spinners are unique, the boxes unheard of, only ones I know of but always looking to add more.

Wright McGill Bug Spinners dating around 1928 - 1930. To find one on a card is extremely tough, to have two and on different time period cards is rare indeed.
There are five variations of the Bug Spinner; Nickle, Brass, Copper & Nickle, and Copper.

I have received some very sound feedback on voting that I appreciate and will make a rule change for.

All votes to be submitted, when time appropriate, should be for a person and individual picture submitted.

EXAMPLE: If say Jim D. submits three pictures I will count up the number of votes for each specific picture, not by the person and total number of votes they received.

So when we vote, we need to vote by the submitter and the specific lure.

I appreciate all feedback (Thanks Jim!).
