Voices from the Past: Texas Lures (1969)

Voices from the Past: Texas Lures (1969)

Well, technically this isn't a Voices from the Past, but it is about one of my all-time favorite subjects: Texas Lures. This time it is about a small company I ran across in a 1969 Fishing Tackle Trade News advertisement. It was for Speed Cast Fishing Tackle Manufacturers of Denison, Texas. At the time, they were offering four lures -- an unnamed topwater spinner, a Chump spoon (a knockoff of a Champ Spoon from Weber), the Fandiver and the Fantail.

Anyone know anything about these guys? Better yet, anyone have one they'd share a picture of? Note two of the lures claim patents and a third is patent pending.

Got to love those Texas lures!
