Neat Fly Fishing bait , Colarodo Floating Moth

Colorado Moth

These were sold by Cook Sporting Goods Company in Denver, Colorado. Mr. Paul Haburl patented and made these from 1932 until his death in 1935. There were nine (9) different wing profiles and 45 different lithographed wing patterns. Each one hand made carefully fitted hooks into a piece of wood, wings attached, banded together, then painted. All this work for a selling price of 50 cents each. One author has stated that perhaps only 1,000 of these remain.
