brian-my-left-testicle replied to your photo: This is fish lure made from a Coleman’s mustard…
do you maybe mean bobber? Because a lure is used to attract the fish, and I can’t see a piece of floating wood do that. But I can see it being used as a floater or bobber to know where your line is
This object is listed as a lure in our database, but you are right that it’s possible it was intended as a float.
Thanks for your input – we will pass it on to our curators, who can re-examine the identification of the object!
