Unknowns for now
Also have a "Pico Perch", 2 1/4", Black w/white spots, 'Swimmin Minnow" pressed into the lower left belly just above center line. The right side has a bulge, the left is as a normal Pico or variants, Silver Iris, black pupil, a floater it floats at about 45 degrees to the right. In a bowl of water it will float on its left, but the slightest disturbance it'll roll to the right and remain....ingenious IMHO. The belly hardware is the standard South Bend single piece, or seems so to me.
The pics have a number of lures I haven't found in a long time searching, five lure books and thousands of on line picture searches. If you have a touch screen you can enlarge the pics. Mine is....didn't even know it until last week. Quite handy.
Am open to suggestions and questions. I'm not a serious collector, just pick up ones at garage sales that catch my eye. I've a work in progress of a catalog of what I have that might be useful to some. Data on various lures/companies I've chanced upon. Some may be copyrighted ? But I think I'm safe sharing it as I'm not getting any money for the info. Anyone have any advice on that please let me know ASAP.
102 Views to my post and no-one has any idea to the identity of the lures I've posted pictures of?
Maybe I'm not looking in the correct location. This web page has confused me before.
It would help us help you if you had a clear photo of the lure(s) in question - hard to tell when on stands at the angle you have them.
Picked up a new old tackle box. Spent the last two days trying to identify what I have on my hands. Some goodins and some "users in rough country". Went through the three books I have and spent an hour or so on line.
One has my attention, someone might know of it. It generally looks like a Devils Horse or Smithwick, but has two sharp pointed spinners/props, both mounted on the rear of the lure.
No responses to a previous post of mine with attachments of other's I have yet to identify. Someone suggested I take a picture, I did with my cell phone, but they wanted a pro picture and apparently did not have a touch screen monitor to expand the pictures on the attachment. I know a photographer who is looking for a cheap used camera with a Macro lens.
...deeper in that tackle box I ran across a Brown 'flock' fur, Heddon Meadow Mouse that still has it's tail, both ears and eyes!!!! I know what two books, newest printed in 2005, say this is worth but wonder what they would sell for now.

Not sure where you see a request for a "Pro Picture", but I did suggest you provide a clear picture of the lure(s) you'd like help with - not a distant group shot such as the one you posted. A touch screen isn't the answer, and you don't need to use a Macro lens either. Use the books you have to get an idea of the type of photos they provide and mimic them.
You'll need a photo of your twin prop bait (A Devils horse is a Smithwick bait) if we are to help with that too. As for the flocked Heddon mouse, there are quite a few sold items that you can search ebay for and get the information you requested.
Thanks for the reply and suggestion.
Actually on the suggestion of a pro photographer acquaintance I tried doing a close up with a smart phone and it worked !
Now to transfer them to my computer and attach them to another request.
wonder if there is a maximum one can attach in the event I decide to sell my entire collection.
Got a reply from someone on ebay or Facebook overnight regarding a lure he had posted. He had no idea what he had as he posted it at the request of his father. He did say that "none are moving". So guess the market is soft at the moment.
Maybe something of interest. I happened upon a Heddon Meadow Mouse in really good condition. 'Flocked'/Fur covering, ears, eyes & tail are attached. Wonder what they go for, the books are always higher than what is on eBay.
Am thinking of trying Facebook as a means of selling lures. It seems better than eBay.
I've sent a question or two in the past, attaching pictures taken with my cell phone as close as I could get to the lure's, both in a group and I think individually.
On my Monitor I can use my thumb and forefinger and expand these pictures the same as doing so on my cell phone.
A couple of fellas replied asking me to take pictures, I replied with my previous paragraph and am unaware of a reply to 'that' comment.
I've a number of unidentified lures. Please, would someone tell me if the photos I've sent previously can be 'enlarged/expanded' on your monitor? If not I can try and get a close up of each lure, but obviously it isn't a Macro lens so will do as best I can. There are a number of them, would this be a problem? If so maybe a video would be more successful, using my Cell. Too, I wonder if this might be an issue with NFLCC's server and maybe sending the photos directly to one of you might be a solution to the expansion to inspect the photos. You guys might try this between yourselves to test the theory. If it works you can take the issue to your webmaster, have a 'safe' direct email address for people to send their photos to, or have them sent directly to one of you. That seem logical?
I have identified two, and possibly a third as being J.T. Buel lures, but haven't been able to find much info on these. the one in question is a large arrowhead spinner about 7 inches long, no ID/markings, and does not match perfectly with the pictures of Buel Arrowhead Spinners I HAVE found on line.
Hi Tom, thanks for your posts. I tried to expand your group photos and even enlarging the photos you provided, i cannot see enough of the lures from a single photo to help determine ID's except for on a couple...top photo back far left is a Bomber Slab Spoon. Right side, middle lure red head/white body downward lip is a Bomber Bomberette. If easier for you to add photos from your phone, I would suggest posting the individual photos to the NFLCC Facebook page which may receive more traffic than this forum at present time. Good luck, Bryce
A member was kind enough to reply to a previous post, identify two of the lures, and suggest I retake photos and attach them to the Facebook / main / most active page. This is my latest attempt to attach acceptable pictures for lure identification.
Not sure if they were, don't think they all made it to the 'Attach Files'
Tried to number them by lure and different angles, say 5 3 would be 5th lure 3rd picture.
If this fails I may have to ask someone to let me send the photos and enter them correctly as this website seems remind me of my first marriage.
