Rob Pavey blogs green issues and the outdoors life

You've heard nominations for Best Picture. What about Best Antique Fishing Lure?

This is the time of year when everyone is buzzing about the Academy Awards. It's also the dormant period that begins after hunting season and persists until spring fishing gets cranked up.

For me, it's a great time to enjoy indoor hobbies associated with the outdoors. My favorite one revolves around my passion for antique fishing lures.

This week, I've sent along a photo gallery of some of my favorite "Fishing Lure Superlatives" to my friends up at Field & Stream magazine, which I have read and enjoyed since childhood.

With the permission (in fact encouragement) of my editors here at The Augusta Chronicle, I am sharing the link for you to enjoy:

You might see a few old favorites here, or you might be surprised at the ingenuity and workmanship that went into the lures our grandfathers and great-grandfathers willingly hurled at largemouths and walleye and trout.

As always, we appreciate your readership, and welcome your feedback.
