These are hand made lures manufactured in the mid 1800, s by local Sitka Eskimo,s.They were made from mostly natural materials that included
Grasses, mammoth ivory, walrus ivory, sea lion ivory and shells balleen,sinue and stone.
I found them in the local museum yesterday.
Hope you like them.

Very interesting Barry
  Thanks 
 Not far different in many ways to the island lures depending on the material available and used

What type of material used for cord and binding material.


Regards John
