Just wanted to share! Seems that the new lure company's are base on older lure models.

One of the ones made in the USA. Added new hooks and is ready to go!

When those hooks scratch it down to the bone then you will begin to whack the big bass and bigger stringers. It is a great crank bait when it has some miles on it.

I have a whole tackle box full of those. Most of them are brand new 36 year old lures.

Keep it and the box together and original. There are old used lures out there, so you don't ruin a mint condition one.

Good looking bait!

I would say throw it; if you lock it up in a closet for 30 years it might be worth $20.

Cool. I believe that all Norman lures are made in Arkansas. Could be wrong though... fish

The best ones were Bill Dance's and Charles Spence's LITTLE S in Chrome/black back. I have every color and they are fish catchers of the highest quality. I like the BIG S's also and have several of them. I have all of the Spence Scouts in the wooden versions. We would go to Mr. Spence's garage in Memphis, TN.. to get all the prototypes and help test them. It was great getting to be in on the ground floor.
