OF METAL FOR OVER FIFTY YEARS!

For over five decades, fishermen have equated the name Acme with quality in metal fishing lures; quality of design, components

and finish. Our motto "designed to catch fish, not fishermen" is as true today as when our company was started by Art Lavallee

in 1952.

All Acme lures are extensively field-tested by expert fishermen. When we recommend a specific lure for trout, bass, pike or walleye,

it wi II catch them.

As fishermen, we realize a lure must not only cause fish to strike, it must also be able to hook and hold'em. We use the finest

stainless steel split rings and hooks that strike deep and hold fast.

Acme's plated and painted finishes are unsurpassed. Our jewelry-quality gold, nickel, chrome and copper plating produce top flash

attraction and our baked-on painted finishes lure lunkers trip after trip.

All of these features make Acme Tackle America's finest line of nationally advertised fishing lures.

KASTMASTERÂŽwith tube tail!

Kastmaster's famous fish-catching action combined with the attraction of a surgical tubing lure is irresistible to a variety of gamefish including barracuda, bluefish, weakfish, stripers, cod and pollock. The durable latex rubber tube is attached to the Kastmaster with a Rosco swivel, which helps to prevent a hooked fish from twisting itself free from the lure. Kastmaster with tube tail is equally effective for casting or trolling and is especially deadly when vertically jigged.

KAMLOOPER速

~QF3 =r- - _

_ --"

Casts like a bullet, travels for a country mile - Kamlooper is virtually unaffected by strong winds. The best of the spoon lures, it's perfect for catching gamefish (which gobble 80% of their prey from the bottom or in deeper feeding zones). The high weight /profile ratio means that the Kamlooper gets down where the big ones live and eat. There is only one Kamlooper and smart fishermen know it. '/8 oz. (2-4 lb. test) for trout, sma II mouth bass, minnow-eating gamefish. 3/ 16 oz. (4-8 lb. test) light spinning and spincasting - for trout, small mouth bass, walleye, sauger. 3/8 oz.(6-10 lb. test) for trout, lake trout, bass, walleye, salmon, steel head, pike. 3/4 oz. (10-15 lb. test) for trout, steel head, salmon, pike, muskies, trophy-class brown & Dolly Varden trout. NOTE: Check size listing below for {olor availability.

K.O. WOBBLER®

This lure excites fish by sight and sound! Gamefish are sensitive to the vibrations created by baitfish on the move. K.O. Wobblers mimic this sound with their precision-engineered "Sonic Flipper Tail" . Once they are drawn by the sound, gamefish are excited into striking by the K.O.'s flashing tail and seductive side-to-side wobble. It's an offer they can't refuse.

KASTMASTER XL ®

Anglers asked Acme for a lure that would "match the hatch" when predators were feeding on slender-bodied bait fish such as sand eels, anchovies, silversides, candlefish or smelt. Our answer is KASTMASTER XL! Precision machined, KASTMASTER XL is equally effective whether cast, trolled or jigged. Equipped with stainless steel split

rings and 4X-strong VMC treble hooks, KASTMASTER XL is deadly for stripers,

bluefish, bonito, albacore, seatrout, salmon,

spanish mackerel and other gamefish.

LITTLE CLEO®

Second only to the news that salmon and steel head were tearing up tackle in the Great Lakes was the discovery that Little Cleas were the surest way to catch them. To anglers in the know that wasn't really news. For over 30 years Little Cleas have been tak­ ing limit catches of gamefish throughout North America. The unique hump-backed shape of Little Cleo results in a seduc­ tive, wiggling action as the lure is drawn through the water. The illusion created is one of a fat baitfish, acting in an erratic, con­ fused manner. This odd behavior triggers the predatory nature of the gamefish, who strike out of curiosity and anger, as well as hunger. This three-way appeal hooks them every time, and explains Little Cleo's fantastic success - it's famous countrywide as the one lure that takes all gamefish.

(2-4 lb. test) fly rod, ultra-lite spinning - for trout, panfish. 1/8 OZ., 1/6 OZ. (2-4 lb. test) ultra-lite and light spinng, spincasting - for trout, panfish, shad, small­ mouth bass. 1/4 OZ.

0Z)

/ 40Z 31 _ ) _ _ 0Z _ _

This "slender slayer" from the makers of Kastmasteris design­

ed for casting or trolling. NEED-L-EEL's profile and slow wobble

closely mimics sand eels, silversides, needlfish, anchovies,

smelt, and other slim-bodied baitfish which predator fish can't

resist.

NEED-L-EEL has been field tested by expert fishermen and has

proven to be deadly on a number of species, including bonito,

bluefish, false albacore, mackerel, school stripers and weak­

fish. NEED-L-EEL will also catch freshwater species such as lake

trout and salmon.

All NEED-L-EELs are equipped with stainless steel split rings and

high quality, corrosion resistant hooks.

A faster retrieve or trolling speed is recommended for bonito,

blues, and false albacore; retrieve NEED-L-EEL more slowly for

stripers and weakfish, lake trout and salmon.
