Do Not Forget - - FISHING IS MEANT TO BE FUN - -



  - Fish Facts: In the Early 1940s - Robert Hopkins set out to build a new fishing spoon that would do 2-things: Cast further & catch a variety of saltwater species. Ironically, they did both things while gaining greatest fame in fresh water vertical jigging - a technique that does not take advantage of their long-casting ability. Hopkins´s original lures were made from ground down and hammered out stainless-steel knife handles. Today the spoons are forged from solid stainless steel for high quality and copper-plated, nickel-plated and finally chrome-plated for the most durable finish possible..
