Antique Darby Fishing Lure (Whiting, Indiana)This old Indiana lure was manufactured in the 1930s by T&M Dary or M.L. Darby. The boxes are printed with T&M Darby, but the advertisements refer to M.L. Darby. The hooks on this hoosier made lure rotate and can be "set" into 2 small holes in the body of the lure. When a fish grabs the lure and pushes down on the 2 metal weed guards, a spring is activated, causing the hooks to spring out of the body (like a switch blade)!
