ABOUT THIS BOOK
First published in 1979, The Spooners by Harvey W. Thompson and Todd E.A. Larson was the first book to chronicle the history of the fishing spoon and spinner in America, from its origins with Julio T. Buel to its development in the 1870s and 1880s to its explosion as a lure no angler could be without in the twentieth century. Commissioned by the legendary Eppinger Manufacturing Company, makers of the great Dardevle spoons, with their kind permission this book has been updated, revised, and expanded to include numerous metal lure makers not included in the first edition. The result is an entertaining and interesting history that outlines many of the most famous and important spoons in American angling history. It’s a must for any angler, collector, or history buff interested in our nation’s great fishing past!
