While fishing is still a wildly popular outdoor sport today, it was just as popular at the turn of the century. It has always been an exciting sport to anglers from all generations, however, with the development and availability of artificial bait by companies like Creek Chub, interest in fishing exploded in the early 1900s.
Anglers of the time couldn't wait to get into town and try the latest lures, many of which were branded Creek Chub. The lures worked and the new designs and models sold like crazy! Many a fisherman had enough lures in his possession that several tackle boxes were needed to store them!
Today many of those old lures are valuable, collectible antiques. People today often stumble upon boxes of tackle tucked away in the attic or shed of a deceased friend or relative and list them on auction sites like eBay. They know it's "old" and has value, but generally they have no clue what it's worth. This is how the real bargains are found!
Imagine finding an old CC Dingbat plug, a Pikie minnow or a Pike Scale River Rustler to add to your collection? Or a Rare Vintage 1925 Creek Chub Wooden Wiggle Fish in the original box? These types of lures are purchased everyday on the Internet, some at really low prices! It can happen for you too!
Whether you are seeking Creek Chub lures to fish with or need some additional model #'s for your collection or display, you'll find the sizes, colors and styles you need at many different price points. Buying in "Lots" can yield some good Creek Chub lures and is a great way to get started in this hobby without spending a fortune.
