Default Before Heddon...Crazy Crawlers

Many folks don't know that prior to Heddon making the Crazy Crawler...a gentleman named Jim Donaly made a lure called the Jersey Wow.

Heddon eventually bought the rights to manufacture the lure...and the ones 1st made actually had the Donaly "clips" that held the wings on.

That said...check out this auction for an original Jersey Wow currently on Ebay

Here's a group I sold of Crazy Crawlers I sold on Ebay several months ago.

When I put them up with a "Buy It Now" option of $100....they didn't last 15 minutes

If you look at the lure in the upper left corner of my pic...the clips on that one are the Donaly clips

You will also see some notes I made on the pic that can help you identify the age of various Crawlers
