Guist, Robert The American Devon & McGinty Minnow: Identification and Price Guide
Cincinatti Whitefish Press 2008 First Edition Trade Paperback As New
100 pp. For the first time ever, noted outdoor writer Robert E. "Bob" Guist brings you the definitive identification guide to the American McGinty and Devon Minnow. A uniquely American twist on the Phantom Minnow, this lure has puzzled collectors and historians alike. Guist unravels the complicated web of the McGinty, from its origins in the 1920s up to the 1990s. Used primarily by "River Rats" for walleye and other river fish, readers will be surprised to discover that the McGinty was manufactured from Washington State to Massachusetts, and many spots in between. From the major manufacturers and resellers like Pflueger, Eppinger, Horrocks-Ibbotson, Paw Paw Bait Company, Abbey & Imbrie, and AL&W to the small mom-and-pop cottage makers like John Popplecheck, Ed & Delores Miller, Chuck Hayes, and Steve Oravec, this book covers the McGinty in incredible detail. Fully illustrated and with many tips on how to distinguish one from the other, this book is a must have for the collector.
