Writing a series of books on this scale took me over a nine-year path of research and photography. However, even with that, it would not have been possible for me to have completed this project without the assistance of hundreds of contributing people.
Consequently, these books are the result of the collective efforts and contributions of the following people and many others too numerous to mention. We spent countless hours pouring over the Richard Walton files alone. He started shortly after the turn of the twentieth century and collected and kept meticulous records of his finds for another 50 years. Meeting Bob Slade for the first time was a shocking experience to me.
Here was this big guy talking non-stop with unbelievable passion about Wisconsin fishing lures. Most impressive was his knowledge of the history of each lure and its inventor or manufacturer. To me, this is what sets Bob apart from many other lure collectors in this compulsive and rewarding hobby of ours. It helps that Bob is blessed with a wonderful memory that supplements his passion for collecting fishing tackle and the history of fishing lures.
Bob trained himself in the art of photography to enhance his stories of lure history and lure identification. Bob was born in in Charlotte, Michigan and grew up on the family farm.

I have fished with Bob in the Northwest Territories at a lake at which he has fished for many years. The fishing hole is miles north of Yellowknife and has yielded many monster pike and lake trout to Bob including a pound pike that he boated. At home in Wisconsin, Bob is a fanatical bass fisherman. All this fishing fits nicely into his passion for lure collecting. Before I met Bob, his lure collection had numbered over 12, lures-one of the largest collections in the United States-which he sold for health reasons.

However, Bob could not be stopped for long and soon started collecting again. When he finished his book on Wisconsin lures, Bob sold his second collection of many thousands of lures.
Today, Bob is still very busy buying and selling lures for research of the history. This task could go on and on forever and never be finished. Bob is quickly recognized at lure shows carrying his camera, interviewing collectors, and taking photos of both new finds and different variations of known lures. Many collectors have never known the history of some lures prior to Bob writing up their story. He greatly enjoys the hunt part of collecting, and I think he is on a mission to provide all of us with a guide to tackle identification and to tell the stories of fishing lure history.
The Encyclopedia of Old Fishing Lures
Bob is blessed with a wonderful wife, who graciously puts up with all of this lure stuff and also does the hard work of packaging and shipping his lures. When I started doing research and writing on this current book project in the fall of , I had no idea that it would take nine years to complete.
I have traveled to eleven states and three Canadian providences doing research and have taken well over 10, pictures. I have been invited into dozens of homes to do photography and have spent many days in museums and libraries researching old archives. During these nine years, my normal fishing time has been cut in half, and our home has become a warehouse of boxes of papers and pictures. I originally began the project with the intention of covering only a few Great Lakes States, and, in fact, the original title of the books was going to be, Lures of The Great Lakes States.
However, the undertaking kept growing and growing until finally it was covering all of the United States and parts of Canada. The author traveled to 11 states and 3 Candian Providences visting collectors homes, newspaper archives, museums and other sources and has taken over 10, pictures in preparing the historical stories for these books. The set of books arranges for the individual and company lures makers to appear in alphabetical order.
People purchasing these books can buy any one single book, a whole set, or even a book a month if they desire as the books will be printed and shipped on demand. Each book has over pages of text, pictures and collector values with each book containing a table of contents and index as well as a master index for the complete set of books. Help Centre.
