    What about Flitz? I remember having to polish all the railings and cleats on our boat as a kid with that stuff

    Going out tomorrow for an old school derby with my buddy. He’s got some he’s done up and here’s what I’ve got ready. Theses were all rusty,ugly & old. I put them through the Coca Cola 48 hr soak then metal polish, more coke & more polish. I’m about to throw them in a tub of dish soap and a good scrub then it down to allure only the biggest of fish in the morning off Victoria’s waterfront.
    From top to bottom; Nootka Flasher & Wonder 6”, Lure Jensen & Canadian Silver Horde 4”, Tom Mack dodger & Tom Mack 5”

    Well the old school day was fun but didn’t produce much action for either of us but the regular bait & spoons weren’t any better. Looking forward to doing another day with the old gear.

    The last ones look like Pt. Defiance spoons.

    Similar concept. I have no idea which came first Pt. Defiance, PEETZ or PAL. The ones that I shared are PAL P4. Ed Pallister also made them bigger P6.

    I have an old all brass, not coated spoon. It is stamped MAK-M-BITE 6 PAT. PEND. Don't know anything about their history or vintage, but seems old.

    Mak-m-bite is from the same maker as the Kach-mor, Later made by Gibbs and Pal. Patented in 1930, Kach mor manufacturing company, Vancouver, BC

    Thanks for the info. It has a slightly tapered line end but less so than the Gibbs Improved Stewart, but is not cupped. They used flat bevel bends on each side of the line end instead, but the hook end is cupped. Nice to know it is an old BC spoon.

    So after a couple of comments...the other night I started re-evaluating my fishing tackle cache. The issue now stands clear, especially after acquiring Magic Lure Products and PAL trolling lure tooling dies and equipment...I appear to have way more gear than one man needs. Lol :)

    Here's a fun one. It may just be the earliest inline flasher concept. Kinda cool. :)
