...a Roller-Flasher

I saw this one sitting at the bottom of an old tackle box at a local auction.

A Roller-Flasher model #110 in color 103 - Green/Silver, 3" long & made of wood.

You don't see many of these, especially in the field.

This one here is in rough shape, but still very nice to see this piece of fishing history. These were made by the Roller Flasher Co. of Detroit in the 1940's. Early models were made of wood and advertised as a plug that had the shine of a spoon. These lures were gone by the 50's.

A rare find.
