I was givin a tackle box with many old lures; This lure was the only one with a box and paperwork. I've tried to find information about the lure but found nothing. I've never seen one like it and am at a dead end. If someone know's anything that could help me with any information pertaining to this unusual lure please let me know. Thank You.................................Mike

    My father, Charles Burke, invented plastic Flexo Lures in the 50's. He was left-handed and started out by engraving the molds by hand in the utility room of our home in Traverse City, MI. My mother and a friend helped package and ship out orders in those early days. He later expanded to several locations before settling on S. Airport Road. The Mickey Minnow was named after me and the Minnie Minnow after my aunt. The business was sold to Bing McClellan, McClellan Industries. My father passed away in 1969.
