Jim Bo Update #3: Hold the Phone!

Jim Bo Update #3: Hold the Phone!

Well, just when you think you know something, you realize you don't know anything at all! Lindy Egan emails with a further addendum to the Jim Bo story, or "the Lure that Would Not Die" as I like to call it...

Here's what Lindy emails us:

Would you believe Las Vegas, NV I have a set of three with the Red tails with three different colored inserts (Red, Gold & Silver). These Jim Bo's are smaller than the older version. I LOVE MY JIM BO'S!!!!

Hard to read but postmark is 1967

Wow! 100 Jim Bo's for just $67 bucks!

Amazing. So the Jim Bo's story begins in Florida in 1952, continues to Kentucky in 1959, and moves to Las Vegas in 1967. I will not make the mistake of calling Jim Bo's story over again!

Where did Jim Bo end up next? It's like a game of Where's Waldo!

Thanks to Lindy and everyone else, we're starting to learn a lot about this neat little lure!
