"Almost nothing -- from the Texas Rig to the Pistol Grip Rod Handle to the Alabama Rig -- is truly "new." Take your lure, the Heddon #1000 Triple Teazer, sold between 1929-1933. It was another in a line of lures designed to imitate a school of small minnows, and followed in the wake of the Walton's Speed Bait and the Shannon Twin Spinner (which it closely resembled). I've seen fisherman-altered versions of these where hooks have been added to the marked spinners, predating the Alabama Rig by eight decades. It's an obscure and hard-to-find bait from Heddon, and should be worth $20-$30. To see a Triple Teazer new in original box, click here."
