Thanks for adding me to your forum.
I came across it today whilst trying to identify/price some old lures.
I have a good number of lures still in their original packaging which belonged to my father and possibly my grandfather which I wont be needing. I hope they will be of interest to the forum members.
Regards Spiker.

I forgot to mention, my mother in law (and her late husband) were the original manufacturers of the Baltic Minnow and Baltic Flash (plus a number of other lures). They started to make them when they immigrated to Australia from Poland.

Hi John and welcome to the site also from me.

Like most of the lure collectors on here, we not only have lures but enjoy some of the background and history.

So do I read that "Mr Baltic" - Bernhard Szhot (spelling) was your grandfather ??

Cheers

Hi Wadey

Boleslaw Szot (correct spelling) is my wife's father. He has passed away. But my mother in law is still alive. She did most of the actual lure making. He did the designing and creating.

Regards

Thanks Wadey.

I think she got bored at times and liked to add some variety to the lures. She used these jewels and strips of reflective materials occasionally.
