Voices from the Past: O.A. Turner's Lure (1909)

Bill Sonnett sent me this clipping from a 1909 Field & Stream magazine. It is one of the strangest and most complicated write-ups for a fishing lure I've ever seen, and what a fishing lure it is! The O.A. Turner casting minnow. A rare and very desireable bait. I particularly like the idea of "special order colors" it references. There goes my idea of color collecting these guys...
