Show synopsis Like Volumes 1 and 2, Modern Fishing Lure Collectibles, Volume 3, deals primarily with items made since 1940 in the United States. Volume 3 continues author Russell Lewis's tradition of providing large, crisp photos, realized prices for items, and histories to go along with both well-known and often forgotten fishing lure companies. Expanded information on companies that could not be fully covered in Volumes 1 and 2 is included, as well as new companies: Horrocks-Ibbotson Company, Wood's Lures, L & S Minnows, and Cicso Kid Lures, to name just a few. The book gives the reader a true image of a particular year in fishing tackle history through advertisements from the time period, detailed facts, and representative photographs. While Volume 2 gave the complete history for nearly 50 years by examining vintage catalogs, this volume shows many of the actual rods and reels in photographs with approximate values when known for items from 1937 through 1952. Lewis gives a complete history of all rods, reels, and lures available for sale in the United States for 1952. This volume contains no repeats from Lewis's other books and identifies previously unknown items. It is a perfect companion to author Lewis's other volumes. 2005 values.
