An unknown carver from Rhinelander, WI is responsible for many of these classic lures. He hand-carved the sunfish/bluegill, crayfish, frog and bird in the 1940s. The gopher, a prized muskie bait and one of the most eye-catching in an extensive northern Wisconsin collection, was done by an unknown Eagle River, WI, carver in the 1940s. The spotted duck, another muskie bait, is the work of Darius Ditty of Elm Rock, PA, from the 1930s. Also visible are an old River Runt box, left background; antique line spools, in front of the River Runt box; an old fashioned bobber, between the gopher and the frog; and a Montague bobber in mint condition, upright in its original box, right background. This has a textured finish (no glass), giving it the look and feel of canvas and is professionally framed in a 1.75" rustic brown frame.
