History Of Use
This item was used by Steve Hidber in Oscar's Source for Sports - as of 2017 this had become Dan's Source for Sports. These plaques would be provided by lure manufactures and brought out during fishing season. The same one would be used "over a few years as they did not offer new colours that often back then." Nowadays, Steve says, manufacturers continually renew their stock with new colour variety. Therefore, this plaque and others have declined as manufacturers use colour catalogues and only make smaller cardboard displays that are less involved. This plaque was used in the 1980s.
