Only 6 More RAIN to Go...
I'm always looking for items to assist in research for the book I'm writing as well as my personal collection.  While I do collect all types of South Bend, I do specialize in the RAIN color (see photo).  I only need 6 more model varieties to complete my RAIN collection.  If you have any of these for sale or trade, please contact me.  Click on the photos below to see examples of the baits I need.

1.  Three hook Combination Minnow

2.  Three hook Min-Buck Photo coming soon.
3.  Five hook Min-Buck Photo coming soon.
4.  920 Surface Minnow Photo coming soon.
5.  912 Single rear hook Panetella Photo coming soon.
6.  Stripe-Oreno



I have been collecting and researching South Bend Bait Company antique lures, boxes, advertising, and catalogs since the early 1990's.  I am currently in the process of working on a book to share my research findings with fellow collectors and members of the National Fishing Lure Collectors Club.
