No, I bought that Jitterbug when I was about 14 or 15 years old, the box probably went in the trash as soon as I got the lure out! Stupid Kid!!
The lure is in like new condition. Brown with white scale lines painted on.
The old Wheedler is the same age, probably bought them the same summer. It is black. Should be a good night time lure. Every time I go fishing, I forget to give it a try!
Thanks for the information. I love Arbogast lures and history about them interests me.
Oh, another Arbogast collectable I have is a 33 1/3 RPM phonograph record that came in a catalog from about the same time as the two lures I've been discussing, about 1965 or 1966. It is very thin, flexible, and has instructional info on each side spoken by Dick Kotis, president of Arbogast Company. One side is titled "Surface Fishing", the other side is "Obstruction Fishing". And no, I don't still have the catalog it came in. It was in a box of fishing equipment that was stolen from me in 1971.
