Creek Chub 1400 Big Creek Bug Wiggler


The #1400 Big Creek Bug Wiggler was first introduced by Creek Chub Bait Company in 1924 and was made until around 1932. CCBC #1400 Big Creek Bug Wigglers were 2 1/2" long compared to their smaller counter parts. They were advertised as having only 3 catalogued colors but special order colors were also done by request.
