RARE ANTIQUE GLEN L. EVANS WOODEN FISHING LURE IDAHO DESCRIPTION FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION:

ONE OLD WOODEN FISHING LURE WITH A VERY DISTINCT SHAPE AND FEATURES THAT I BELIEVE IS QUITE SCARCE. I DID A TON OF RESEARCH AND COULD ONLY FIND A DECENT REFERENCE TO IT IN "LUCKEY'S #4" P.562. THE OLD ANGLER I GOT THIS FROM SAID IT WAS CALLED THE "UNDER-TAKER". SO I FINALLY FOUND IT AS JUST THAT BUT THAT IT COULD ALSO BE CALLED A "TWO TIMER". IT'S STILL A BIT CONFUSING TO ME. WHATEVER IT'S CALLED IT WAS MADE BY GLEN L. EVANS IN CALDWELL, IDAHO EITHER WHILE HE WAS WORKING OUT OF HIS BASEMENT CRAFTING LURES OR JUST AFTER HE STARTED HIS PRODUCTION BUSINESS WHICH WAS STILL IN THE 1920'S. (THE BEST I CAN FIGURE OUT). I USUALLY DO NOT SPEND MUCH TIME TRYING TO RESEARCH AN OLD FISHING LURE AND THIS ONE DOES OWN SEVERAL OF MY INTERNET HOURS WITH NO FRUITFUL REWARDS. SO, 'S WHAT I SEE......IT MEASURES ABOUT 3 3/8" RESPECTIVELY.....IT DOES HAVE AN ARCH IN IT SIMILAR TO A FLATFISH OR LAZY IKE..... IT HAS FIVE (5), THAT'S RIGHT, FIVE SIDES AND THAT DOES NOT INCLUDE ITS FANCY HEAD CUT NOR IT'S BLUNT REAR SURFACE...... SO I THINK IT'S SAFE TO SAY THAT IT IS MULTI-FACETED......IT HAS EARLY CUP HOOK HARDWARE IN THE BELLY......IT HAS A RATHER UNIQUE PIECE ON ITS RUMP TO KEEP THE HOOK EYE FROM GETTING UNSCREWED.....IT HAS WHAT LOOKS TO BE VERY NICE PAINTED TACK EYES....AND IT HAS A RECESSED LINE TIE HOLE WITH A SMALL WIRE LEADER ATTACHED TO IT......ITS PAINT APPLICATION IS VERY PROFESSIONAL LOOKING WITH COLORS THAT ARE VERY SIMILAR TO THE "PERCH" COLORS FOUND ON OTHER LURE MAKERS BAITS OF THAT ERA. (WITH THE POSSIBLE EXCEPTION OF A " PINKISH FLESH" COLOR ON THE BELLY)......IT DOES HAVE SOME HURTS IN THE FORM OF PAINT LOSS DUE TO FLAKING OFF NEAR THE MOUTH AND SOME ABRASIONS ON ITS RIGHT SIDE. T ARE A COUPLE OF SPOTS OF WHAT APPEARS TO BE RUBBER SKIRT MATERIAL MELTED ON ITS BACK AND UNDER ITS CHIN. OTHER THAN THAT ITS JUST A LITTLE DIRTY AND SHOWS SOME AGE LINES AND TINY BUBBLES NONE OF WHICH DETRACT FROM IT. THE EYES ARE IN GREAT SHAPE AS WELL AS THE LIP AREA. T ARE NO REAL BATTLE SCARS FROM USE THAT I CAN SEE. DESPITE ALL ITS IT FLAWS IT IS STILL PRETTY SHINY AND DOES HAVE SOME NICE EYE APPEAL DUE TO ITS ODD SHAPE. I DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT EARLY LURE MAKERS IN IDAHO BUT I WOULD THINK THIS BAIT COULD BE ONE OF THE FIRST....ANY INPUT ON IT WOULD BE APPRECIATED....LOTS OF PICTURES FOR YOUR VIEWING....THANKS, JED
