Heddon Antique Lure Galleries


In the Heddon Antique Lure galleries you will see a great myriad of the Heddon antique lures produced. James Heddon and his lures were certainly one of the most prolific old and antique fishing lure makers of its time. Heddon created a variety of fishing lures for close to a century. You will see a myriad of baits that were offered by Heddon in either standard or special order methods. We will span the coverage showing some of the first Heddon fishing lures made up through the 1950s.

The Heddon Dowagiac lures shown will be annotated by a short blurb which will contain the Heddon Lure model number, some distinguishing remarks about the lure and a general circa date for a visual reference. 

Some of the lures listed below and in the 3 subsequent Heddon Lure Galleries were only made for limited amounts of time and or limited quantities. We hope you'll enjoy this walk through a Heddon Lure Collection.
