:help:Please help me idenify the manufacturer of this lure and where I may possibly purchase another one. I bought this lure and another that was slightly larger at a Walmart in Arizona. As you can see it has green prism tape on one side and on the reverse it has silver. They came in several colors. My dilemma is that I was catching trout left and right the other day with larger version of this lure and I got it hung up and lost it. My local Walmart has a very limited selection of fishing equipment so I was hoping that someone would recognize this lure so that I can purchase another. Thanks.

It looks like a luhr jensen lure alot of their lures carry that reflective tape and are shaped similar to that one, might want to check out their website.

Have you looked in between the blades to see if there is a manufacturers stamp/name?

Yeah, that's the first thing I thought of too. No manufacturer name or any markings of any kind. I've looked over Luhr Jensen's website and could not find this lure.

do you by chance remember the color of the packaging? best bet is to search through some lure making sites or catalogs and see if you can find that spoon pattern pre-cut and make your own, I know the lure tape is very available as is all the other hardware.

It really looks alot like the luhr Jensen "super Duper" but I haven't seen that pattern before.

The best I can recall, these were packaged as singles and were made by some obscure company. I really think they were made in the U.S. who knows with Walmart, right? Another alternative if I can't buy one is to make it if I can find all the materials.

A few of the bait shops in my area carry super dupers. I live in the bay area. I haven't seen them at any of the wal marts

thats not a superduper. They are one piece, bent in half.

whatever it is, it's got everything you'd want in a trout lure. Weight, color and sound..

I'm off to the shop to grind and drill on some Brass !

Yeah, it's not a Super Duper - A Super Duper is "U" shaped from the side. This looks closer to a Kastmaster, but with angles. I have seen something like this but I can't exactly remember the name...??? I want to say "Buzz Bomb" or "Zinger" - but that is just a guess.

Wal-mart, like most major tackle shops, don't buy their own tackle. They contract with a local distributor who comes in several times a year and stocks the shelves for them. If you bought the lure in Arizons, it might be a local lure and supplied there by a local distributor. Your best bet is to go back to Arizona and find another.

I worked at Fishermans Wharehouse for quiet a while and I know they don't have anything like that.

I believe it is a kokanee lure. I think it is made by Curly's. I think I found it at kokaneetackle.com. Here's a link:

Curly's Lure has a website (http://www.curlyslures.com/), too. It says on the home page they sell them at Walmart and Sports Authority.

That's an interesting lure. It says on the site that it spins, creating a flash from the silver side and the alternate color side. Have never heard of it before now.
