Spoonplug

Spoonplug

A spoonplug is a form of fishing lure. It was invented in 1946 by Elwood L. "Buck" Perry, then a physics and math teacher in Hickory, North Carolina. Perry combined science with a logical approach to fishing to create a "total fishing system." He decided to teach people to fish instead of teaching math or physics. He is credited as being the father of structure fishing and was later inducted into the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame.

Buck used a total fishing system of understanding lakes types, water color, weather, tools and controls, and structure and mapping to make the system work.

Quotes

Perry's motto or most famous quote is "knowledge is key to success" and "The home of the fish is deep water"
