Yes, old and new. There are a lot of regional lure makers that are never known out of their county or state.

Even in Canada...LoL
I'm on the list.
There's a few more here in Canada I can think of but they are not well known in Eastern Canada and in the US I believe.

Cool thread

Johnathan & Asa - Thanks, I forgot about those you noted. (and many more)

Stef - Just because you're North of the border makes no difference! grin

Asa, Thank you for that nod and clarification to amplify my antique "memory." I remembered that one, too.

K-zoo,

Give up now. I have what I believe to be the most complete list ever put together and I don't say that sarcastically. Been working on it ten years and have contacted many trappers since. My last count was around 175 lure makers...and most were marketed. There were a few that made them and gave them away, but most of the list marketed them. My list is not even complete, but it's been a fun road to travel.

I will say that quite a few came out of New York and Pennsylvania. Ohio hasn't done too bad either.
