Ideal Fishing Tackle Co.

The Ideal Fishing Tackle Company was located at 313 Warden Avenue in Toronto,Ontario.Their "Proven Lure" line of baits were in existence in the 1940's and 1950's."The Ideal Lure For The Ideal Fishing Trip" was the slogan they used.They sold many varieties of wooden lures as pictured below {from Gord Cluff's collection}.Very unique were the Banana syle.The wooden lures had pressed eyes and a distinct metal lip with the slot in it.These lures seem to be quite scarce to locate which would indicate a short span in production.
