Lure Holds Live Lightning Bugs (Aug, 1950)

Lure Holds Live Lightning Bugs

One night an Indiana fisherman was having trouble persuading the fish to strike even though they were leaping out of the stream to snap at lighting bugs. The following night the angler returned with a small glass bottle to which he had wired some hooks. He put a half-dozen lighting bugs in the bottle and used it as a lure with good results. Now the idea has grown into a new transparent-plastic lure which can be unscrewed and lightning bugs inserted for night fishing. The lure can be used where fishing with artificial light is prohibited, according to the manufacturer.

    This is actually a good idea, if you don’t care about animals. I’m sure fishermen would use it today.
