The Pilot - by H.R. Stewart Co.

I found this little doosie at the bottom of a tackle box last year and it wasn't until recently that I found out what it was. This is the H.R. Stewart "Pilot" the lure dates to 1903. I was able to find and actual ad for the lure from a hardware magazine.This ad comes to us from the Hardware Dealers Magazine Vol.23 1905

This Ad shows the Pilot at the bottom with some well-known lures of the time
