Want to start collecting Plugs from “ local” makers for both fishing and just collecting. Once upon a time I had a decent antique lure collection but burnt out on the hobby and sold off my collections which I have since regretted. Looking for handmade wood plugs (both salt and fresh) from Ma or NE makers if you could name a few . Not necessarily vintage.

Thx T

Work Horse lures.  Used to be made by a guy N of Boston (Plum Island area?) until 6 or so years ago.  Well built, effective and didn't cost a fortune.

I'll add Lloyds Lures based in CT.  I have a 2 oz. metal lip swimmer from him, it is a nice solid piece.

Very tough to find, but highly prized are Floyd Roman's plugs. Floyd lived in Three Rivers Ma, made plugs from his home. They were sold in a few shops when I was young. But he also sold many from the trunk of his car along the canal.

Highly sought after by collectors also.

My mom was born and grew up in Three Rivers. Believe it or not, they were next door neighbors on Bourne St, and played together as kids.
