LMAO! Love that Glenn.
Diemai, received Old Fishing Lures and Tackle yesterday. I'm impressed. It came in a day early and in much better condition than I thought. I didn't order new and was feared going low end. Received a library book that had been pulled with the note, "Cover in bad shape."
Pages 349 -351 discuss the Immell Chippewa and show the patent drawings. Has me thinking mine needs the side rails epoxied in place first. Then cut a metal insert running the length of the body which allows thru wire. I'm going to give this more thought.
It also shows the possible addition of a jointed tail.
Too many ideas in this book!
And before I jump off on those I need to get some painting done.

@ mark poulson
Mark , actually I have only bought one lure there , a "Rapala MaxRap17" , ....looks like these are the real deal for bank fishing for pike in shallower waters , ....these "MaxRaps" just cast unbelievable far , .......my wife only got herself some disc sinkers and a bigger bubble float for her own stationary fishing .
What I really came there for was a new chair for fishing , ....need something special and most comfortable for my sore bones , ...so I went to test all of their chairs before making a choice , .......these so-called carp chairs are just a lot more convinient , sturdy and versatile compared to the odd collapsible chairs from supermarket sales , ....but certainly they cost multiple times more .
Also got myself a new fishing vest , my old one was already slowly decaying on my body !
For such bigger items it's well worth the 45 miles ride from home , they simpy have the biggest choice and prices around , ......on special sales events the folks even come from approx. 200 miles vicinity , as one can tell by their car license plates on the parking lot .
Glad to hear that you've fetched a well preserved issue , .......looks like you're very fond of that book !
I surely can imagine someone to be thumbing thru time and time again , ...just so many great oldtime lures to discover and possibly make own versions of these , .......been there , done that !
Hope you're coming up with some practical solutions for your "Chippewa" now , ..the seed is sown !
Greetz , Dieter

There's many good books out there, but you have to look hard, lol. Ive talked with Diemai and Jawjacker before about having lure books we can't read. Its like being a kindergartner with a picture book (or an adult with a Playboy). Ive lot's of very instructional books, but you are right, many ebooks are just recycled junk. I know one of the luremaing ebooks is just a scan of a vintage book....
Wobbler is a good book, but only in Dutch and German last I checked. The aussie book mentioned is great, but the 500 lures is the world edition, there is an Aussie edition with over a thousand lures tested, which unfortunately I don't have in my collection. Lures in Depth is same book, but earlier edition with fewer lures. An Aussie book I love is the Book of Lures by Ron Calcutt and Tim Simpson. Knowing Bass by Jones can give you a ton of info, As well as Colin Kayegemas book, and also Joe Buchers Crankbaits book. Many of my "unreadable books are from Japan, Incuding the original minnow making, as well as handmade lure making 1 and 2, cranker, a series on handmade lures, even the lure book 1 and 2 let you know some cutting edge products. I've a Balsa 50 luremaking book, and there is a couple of luremaking dvds from Japan that I havent found copies of yet.
I know of an Italian luremaking book, as well as at least one Finn one that I havent been able to get ahold of...
But yes, TU and search go a long way if you are willing!

Ahh, My Bad..
I hadn't even looked at what ebook that was mentioned. The one linked is by Greg Vinall. Nice enough bloke, was a member here back about 9-10 years ago and was helpful with information as I recall...I think he was with us on TM as well. His info has some very well researched points, that yes, the diehards might know, but for the rest may only be trial and error to find out. Only thing is hes an Aussie. I love Aussie lures and have imported some like Peter Newells, Brent Chapmans, Knols, etc. But they are slightly different fish! Seems more Walleye type than Bass IMHO. Perhaps Pete will chime in...

Craig--don't sell / cast any of those lures if they are made with wood $$$$$$$$$$$$$$---
Probably hard to believe but they do make Bass lures here (similar fish to your Bass, but a nicer colour - http://www.ausbass.com/bass.asp ).
Native's in rivers, hard to find and grow to about 3lb ( http://en.wikipedia....lian_bass_2.jpg, ) in dams (a recent introduction) they grow to who knows yet, but from what I have seen, not unusual to maybe 5- 8lb--
Big lures -big fish, this makes a Murry Cod look small
" I recently caught this Barramundi on the Peel river across from Joe Maguires pub
The fish weighed 113kg's (254 lbs) and unfortunately, could not be released as a crocodile attacked it when they had the fish boatside. "

Wow Pete. That is an impressive fish. Especially to come out of freshwater. Guess you guys don't lip many fish down your way. It would suck to get bit by a croc trying to land a fish.

Beautiful fish Pete! Wish I lived closer to Joe MaGuire's Pub.

P.M sent Rick.
Ben /Gary--Me too, no idea where Joe Ma Guires Pub is either--- the 'Croc' incident is by no means unusual, I was up there (Northern Territory) recently and a mate fell out of the boat trying to retrieve a lure in a tree- it was truly a religious experience, watching a man walk on water .
