Creek Chub 800 Deluxe Wagtail Chub

 

The #800 Deluxe Wagtail Chub was first introduced by Creek Chub Bait Company in 1921 and was made until around 1953. CCBC Deluxe Wagtail lures can be found with glass eyes and either flat or fluted metal tails. The earliest Wagtails have unmarked lips. Later the lips were marked C.C.B.CO Garrett Ind, and after that PAT 9-27-20 was added to the lip. They were advertised as having 7 catalogued colors and many special order colors were also done by request.

I buy old lures like the Creek Chub Wagtail and vintage old lures from many, many other companies. If you have lures to sell, feel free to contact me. I pay more for old fishing lures than most other collectors out there. Be sure to get in touch with me if you would like a lure appraisal or if you have old lures to sell.
