Fishmaster Jerry's Jointed

" Fishmaster Sporting Goods Co."

The Fishmaster Sporting Goods Co., Wollaston, Mass. was founded by

Lew Enholm [ President ] and John Gamsby [ Manager ] in 1945.

 

In 1946 the company began manufacturing wooden saltwater lures;

a short time later luremaker Jerry Sylvester approached the company to have them build two of his lures, the "Jerry's Flaptail" and "Jerry's Jointed";

a deal was finalized and the lures were then added to the Fishmaster line.

 

Lew sold the company sometime in 1950. The new owners kept the company afloat awhile longer, going out of business sometime around 1955.
