Flood Minnow Early Florida Made Antique Wooden Fishing Lure:
You are offerding on a very desirable antique fishing lure made by Fred Flood of Frostproof, Florida. Commonly known as the Flood Minnow or the Florida Shinner. This bait has the patent applied for stamp on the side as shown. The patent for this lure was granted in 1931. With line ties attached to both sides of the lure (rather than the nose on most lures) it was known as the Circling Minnow that Attracts Large Fish. The lure appears to have never been fished and remains in excellent condition although it is said that prior to each of Mr. Floods lures being sold that it had to pass a swim test... The box is soiled as seen in the pics. The original paperwork is included as seen in the pics. Please ask any questions that you might have about this lure at least one day prior to the end of the sale so that I will be able to respond prior to the end of the sale.
