‘Mystery’ Lure Has Tackle Collectors Baffled
By Louie Stout
Antique lure collectors are an inquisitive bunch. Sure, they like to add old-time baits and tackle to their collections. The rarer and harder an item is, the more collectors treasure it.
But there’s more to avid collecting than perceived value of relic lure or gear. These folks are historical buffs and can tell you the story behind each lure in their collections.
Where and how it was made, how many were made, where it was tested and even background on the man who created it.
And it’s that part that is driving Mike Kechkaylo of Berrien Springs crazy.
You see, Kechkaylo recently purchased one of the rarest lures of all. So rare, in fact that not even the most experienced antique lure collector can identify it.
“As far as I know, it’s the only one in existence,” he said. “I’ve been collecting and studying antique lures for 40 years and I’ve never seen one like it.”
And that drives an avid collector crazy.
