This Antique Squid Fishing Lure Has An Incredible Story

http://antique%20japanese%20egi%20squid%20lure

A lot of you guys have asked me what that old wooden lure is in the background of my videos…

I’m glad you asked — it’s got an incredible story.

Obviously it doesn’t look like a normal fishing lure (besides the fact that it’s wooden and handmade) — it’s got two rows of several barbless hooks going around the tail.

That’s because it’s an egi, or a squid jig.

My grandpa got it back in WWII from a land far, far away…

See the full story in the video below!

This egi was handcrafted in Japan and, as my grandfather told us when we were kids, he had to shoot down a bunch of planes just to get his hands on this rare lure.

Of course, that part wasn’t true, but he was a colonel in the Marines and served as a fighter pilot in WWII and the Korean War.

He brought back several fishing lures, including this egi here, and Luke and I are blessed to have several of them.

Eging (jigging with egis), is still a popular way to catch squid today and modern-day egis still look really similar to this one!

Below is a picture of a current egi, as well as a video about eging.
