Salmon egg bait has a long tradition and history, but has been largely overlooked by fishing historians. Meticulously researched book, by noted collector and fishing historian Philip Beguhl. The beautiful labeled jars left behind by companies like Pete's, Mike's, and Atlas brands are highly coveted today, and the author pictures almost all known collectable jars, tins, and labels. The book contains detailed histories of the salmon egg bait companies; a rarity and value guide; and information on finding, collecting, cleaning, and displaying salmon egg memorabilia. It also covers salmon egg related materials such as hooks, dispensers, etc., and a history of salmon egg bait fishing. This book is of great interest not just to fishing enthusiasts, but also anyone interested in the history of advertising and the economic and cultural development of the Pacific Coast.

Anyone interested in the history of salmon and trout fishing in America needs to have this in their library if they want a broad view of the subject. Includes current prices for all known jars as well as a rarity guide.
