~Connecticut Yankee~


Connecticut Yankee

Heavy Special

Walter [ Kris' ] Krystock, Meriden, Connecticut

started manufacturing his lures sometime around 1946-47 and continued building until approx. 1970. 


Walter made many differant models and they came in just about every color under the rainbow.  All had tremendous fish catching ability! 

Walter mainly sold his "Connecticut Yankee's" out of his car trunk; as was the case with many of the other lure builders you will see on these pages.
