Fish Lure Effigy
Folk Art Fish Lure
Purchased from a Black man at a catfish pond.
This one was among 30 or so homemade lures in his tackle box. The maker utilized carved wood, feathers, the shaft of Bic pens, paint, beads - most anything at hand. Did they catch fish? I don't know, but it caught me.
