Items found at church rummage sales are usually a safe bet as are those typically found at yard sales. However, if you run into someone who says, "I have a Heddon Whiz Bang [BRACKET " no such lure "] in hot pink. I know it's worth a lot, but I need some cash now," look out. Another prime suspect is the guy who walks up to you at a tackle show (he's usually never an exhibitor) and says, "Hey I have some good stuff out in my car." Watch out. Phillip "Gabby" Talkington, a good friend and a fellow member of The National Fishing Lure Collectors Club (you can reach him at www.antiquelures.com), has allowed me to use his expertise and knowledge to keep the lure collector from getting bit.
