The Tin Liz, Fred's first commercially produced lure, was trademarked in 1932. Fred described this metal minnow as "the most natural cripple ever made." His fishing friends thought so, too. Demand for the lure grew so quickly that he started his own fishing lure company. Fred eventually produced over a half dozen models of this lure including a fly rod Tin Liz in three sizes; the Twin Liz, a tandem bail; a "snake" Tin Liz, which resembled a two-inch pickerel, a "sunfish" Tin Liz, which swam on its side, and a "Kicker."
