I am looking for the aforementioned novelty lure and hoping a CLF'er may have one buried in their tackle box. The more beat-up the better. But, any condition is fine because I need this particular lure like yesterday! (Thought I had one!!!) It is for a custom habitat for a possible California State Record Spotted Bay Bass that was released. These lures were the old 80's plastic lures made by Heddon shaped like a Budweiser can. They are semi-collectable but plastic and they made a million of them. I am in fact looking for the Budweiser painted one(s). Will pay $10-$20 apiece for one or more plus shipping (if you're too far from me). Otherwise, I'll make the trip if need be.

While I'm on a roll here, I am also looking for any antique/wooden lures/antique wooden bobbers, etc. that are (again) fairly beat up and not worth that much from a collectors standpoint. But will work great in habitats to help bring back those memories from years gone by. Anything older and fishing related that might be a great accent piece in my customer's habitats - let me know what you have! Prices paid of course would vary on what you have and condition.

Much appreciated!

Check your PM 2Sac!

I can use both of these lures Paul, but time is of the essence. Check your PM and please let me know if that's a fair, expedited price - thanks!

Next March, you should go to the Rolling Meadows HS flea market. I remember seeing a bunch of lures like you mention, and most were cheap. Time to plan ahead.
