    Whatever happended to the red and white striped Red Devil spoon lures?

    They were a classic.

    May I assume that the company which made them went out of business in the 30 years since I last picked up a fishing pole?

    It's still around, I saw one in Wal Mart the other day. I cant say for sure if the brand was red devil although I think it was however it was the old familiar red and white spoon.

    Weren't they Dare Devils? Still have some in my tackle box. Even though I haven't used anything in it for about 5 years.

    The name is "Daredevle" and they are still made by the original manufacturer, Eppinger Manufacturing, in MI.

    They work good, but also consider using a "Doctor's Spoon". This is similar to a Daredevil, but usually copper or brass colored and they work great for Northern Pike.

    I used to have one. One day my brother and I saw some Salmon in a area swimming. I went to grab the biggest lure I had with the biggest hooke to Huh huh snag them. But instead I snagged a log.

    I used to like the Little Cleo's when I was a kid ... the naked chick on the back was neat. Probably caught a lot more fishermen than fish I reckon.
