Old Smithwick Catalogs & Lures



Welcome to Lone Star Lures...

a collector's site related to the hobby of all things fishing.



Lone Star Lures' goal is to buy, sell, and trade Creek Chub, Heddon, Ol' Ben's, Hellbender and Bomber fishing lures - as well as...

  • Offer visitors an opportunity to purchase quality NOS and vintage old fishing lures, and other fishing tackle,
    at reasonable prices.
  • Be a place where folks can sell or trade old lures other than ebay.
  • Share the knowledge and experience of members of the National Fishing Lure Collector's Club (NFLCC).

Our fishing lure collections:

Shane's primary lure collection consists of Ol'Ben'sbaits. These lures were manufactured by Ridge Runner Lures Inc., of Shreveport Louisiana, between 1958-1978.

Amy's collection is from the Creek Chub Bait Co. (CCBco) of Garret Indiana. The Creek Chub Lures were manufactured between 1916-1978.

Old Lures Wanted.

This is what we are currently looking for to support our fishing lure collection. If you have the item in the "wanted box" at the left, please contact Lone Star Lures at shane@lonestarlures.com or phone 512 825-8148.

We will buy or trade for your old lures including: Creek Chub, Heddon or Ol' Ben's lures, reels, tackle boxes and anything else related to the sport of fishing. Our lure collection is always changing, check back often!

We offer appraisals by request on your old fishing gear. Age, rarity and actual condition of the fishing item are the biggest factors in determining value, with condition being the most critical.



If you're interested in any of the lures we have, just drop me a line. I look forward to seeing y'all at the next fishing show in Texas or on Joe's Old Lures BB.

Good luck, hope the fish are biting...or as we say around here "Hook 'em".
