Spinno Minno Lure
The Spinno Minnow lure is a antique lure collector favorite, and is a model series 500. This plastic fishing lure was first produced by the Pecos River Tackle Company of Carlsbad, New Mexico in 1944. The fishing lure measures roughly 2 1/2″ in body length, not counting hardware, and tips the scales at around 5/8 of and ounce. The Spinno minnow gets its name from the aluminum spinner inset into its body that rotates as the lure is retrieved through the water. If the holes in the spinner are rectangular its earlier than the round holes. Having painted eyes, a single forward line tie, and 2 trebles to secure its prey, the Spinno Minno is a great bass lure.
We have a Light Green Scale Spinno Minnow in on Consignment this week, click below to view.

The lure was patented in 1945 a year after it began production, which can be seen and read in the gallery below. Eventually the fishing lure was transitioned to and produced by the Uline Manufacturing Company out of Dallas Texas. The lure was manufacture in almost two dozen different color finishes, many of which can be seen below in the gallery. You’ll note a different rib count as well on some of the lures, the earlier being the 4 rib variation.
Drove through what felt like a million ghost towns, but pop-up views like this make it worth it.

Pecos River Style Rock art of the Lower Pecos Canyonlands of Texas. This is the first rock art site I visited and instantly knew I would spend a good portion of my life dedicated to it.
Asters neighboring Holy Ghost Creek reach toward the sunrise over the mountains in the Santa Fe National Forest north of Pecos, New Mexico. Quiet and peaceful would describe this morning, especially since I was on location a couple hours before the UTVs and glasspacks started rambling up the mountain roads to Tererro.
