Karl White's three volume series has consistently remained one our most popular resources in this field. Taken together, they represent one of the most broad and comprehensive approaches to this highly collectible (and profitable) collecting hobby.

I heartily recommend Karl's 3 book set as a worthy addition to any collector or dealer's reference library.
-- John Kincaid, Collector Bookstore

Author's Introduction:

The purpose of this book is to identify and evaluate plugs and plug boxes dated up to 1970.

Plugs are identified as a bodied lure made from wood, metal, plastic or any counterpart. Prices can fluctuate up to 50%, according to the demand of antique tackle. One thing to remember is that the better items keep getting more valuable and the common items stay about the same.

Lure Sets (items of one company's production) and Color Sets (all colors produced of one item), should be at least 25% more valuable. The values in this book are rated as to excellent condition, although the items pictured might not be.
