Commemorative Collectible Bass Lure

The Bomber Spin Stick was used by Stan Sloan to win Ray Scott’s very first national bass tournament – the All-American Invitational at Beaver Lake Arkansas in 1967.  It was an event that changed the sport of bass fishing forever and led to the creation of B.A.S.S. in 1968.

After its re-issue in 1998 on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of B.A.S.S., I obtained a limited quantity of Spin Sticks for my personal collection recognizing its historical value not only for B.A.S.S. but for me personally.  Stan and Don, both deceased, were dear friends and important figures in my life and my career.  Over the years, I asked them both to sign my lures and then added my own signature.

Now on the 40th anniversary of B.A.S.S. I am proud to release a limited quantity of these historical bass lures to the anglers who would most appreciate their value – B.A.S.S. members.  And, I hope you treasure their historical significance as much as I do.
