James Heddon & Sons

Heddon is the most collectible of all vintage fishing lures and probably because it was among the most prolific. The company started way back in 1897 and continued under the direction of various Heddon family members until 1955. It has been under many different non-Heddon family ownerships since then and currently is operating in Arkansas. The original James Heddon is often given credit to being the first to create lures out of wood peices or "plugs".
