Fanthorpe's Killer

If you had plenty of cash, and a great fishing idea, you could commission Hardy Brothers to make said item, as Fanthorpe clearly did with this bait.

Clearly fashioned on the principles of the Aaro and Halcyon spinner, this bait incorporated a spinning vane to promote its appearance in the water.

In two body styles, one with embossed tinsel, the other with plain and a splash of blue in the throat.

Great to see the design principles laid out for Hardy to follow.

Interesting that these examples never appeared in any catalogues.
