Default old lures ?

I found some notes I made many many years ago regarding lures that I was using at the time on the river and what was working for me. Any of you old timers remember the GEE-MIN-EE, RWS T-SPIN, VAMP SPINNERS, HYLAND JIGS, UNCLE PAUL'S KRICKET SPIN, EESTI SPINNERS. Anybody know the history of what happened to these lures, I caught fish on all of them, they just sort faded away ?

Default Re: old lures ?

Isn't it funny how the fishing industry evolves, im 35 and all the changes I've seen. Honestly I didn't recognize a single lure you just mentioned. but that just shows how how much I've missed and how much more time you've had on the water. Please take that in all due respect and a little bit of envy. I enjoy every single second on the water and cant wait to get back out when I get off the water. Some lures that have gone away in my time aare the moss boss, the hank worm, the banjo minnow (i know it still works but are they still available? ha!) the slugo. And you know all of the lures I just mentioned have just been modified. From soft plastic jerk baits to shaky head worms and the advancements in weedless topwater baits. Like I'm sure all of the baits you mentioned above have modern day cousins with similar actions and techniques. this sport just seems to evolve yet stay the same all at the same time.

The newest bass lure that goes against all my recent learnings is the alabama rig or umbrella rig. For the past few years i've been trying to get as stealthy as possible. Flourocarbon line and silent rattle baits and one knocker crank baits, bitsy bug jigs and small shaky worms. Now this monstrosity of a bass lure comes along with it's ounce of lead and steel leaders and knocks the bass world for a loop. Like Paul said Evolution baby.
