Arthur "Dazzy" Vance was a Hall of Fame Pitcher for the Brooklyn Dodgers. He
played for Brooklyn from 1922 to 1932. His final productive year was with St.
Louis in 1933. He later retired to Homosassa Springs, FL. Vance was an avid
fisherman and in 1937 went into business with Paul Manon to make fishing lures.
The two best know lures of his are the No. 1000 Angle Frog, which looks like a
Dalton Special, and the No. 2000 Darter. His other lure was a No. 3000
Seahopper. Dazzy Vance lures were made for only one year in 1937.
