Fishing Lures I Have Known, Vol. I: The Palsa -- The Unoriginal Finnish Minnow




Today we are excited to launch a new regular series on Fishing for History. I am calling it Fishing Lures I Have Known, and it is available to read, download, and distribute for free! Rather than let vultures copy-and-paste the text from the blog, I've made this is a static .PDF file which everyone should be able to read, open, and save right from their browser.

This edition is entitled The Palsa -- The Unoriginal Finnish Minnow and it covers the history of one of my favorite obscure imported fishing lures. I hope you enjoy it. Feel free to share via Twitter, Facebook, email, etc. But please don't add/delete anything from the file if you do. You can also send people directly to this page so they can download it directly from the server, too. Whatever works for you!

Thanks for the article. Recently I have been organizing my garage and am trying to remember what fishing stuff was mine which was my dad's and what may be either my grandfather's or even my great grandfathers
's. Some lures look rather old some look comical but looking online may be old.

One that was easy to identify was an Al Foss Oriental Wiggler #4 mostly because it is the only one in it's original box with papers. But I don't know yet whether it belonged to my grandfather or if it came from my great grandfather. It has PAT. APR. 17,28 so it could have belonged to either of them.
