Lures made by F.L.B. Flood are perhaps the most interesting lures made by a
Florida maker. Their metal fins, carved tail and folk art appearance make them
very popular among collectors today. An interesting thing about Flood Minnows is
that the line tie is on the side of the bait. This causes the lure to have a
large swimming arc when it is retrieved. Flood Minnows were made in the 1930's and came in 3 sizes
and 4 major color patterns. The first lures had silver sides and were made for a
very short period of time. Lures made later had
dots on the sides that represented a scale pattern.
