2019 is International Year of the Salmon. Really . http://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/species-especes/iys-ays/index-eng.html
2019 is also 100 years since the 1919 patent for the Superior spoon . Think of how much the world has changed in 100 years !
Fishing tackle certainly has changed , and yet these are still solid fish catchers . They have a rhythmic side to side swim and substantial body , wobblers , in contrast to the light flutter spoons that are popular now-a-days for towing behind flashers . ( Did I mention I dislike flashers ? ) A lot has been learned about what fish will bite, but the fish don't follow the fashions entirely.
