Heddon Catalogs

HEDDON CATALOGS AND THEIR COVERS
Every Heddon Catalog Cover (or almost) from 1902-Present
Catalogs are some of the best ways we get a glimpse into the early years of lure manufacturing and the companies we collect.  These old catalogs are archived time capsules of the baits made and time periods they were made in.  All of these add to the value of collections.  Whether using for research, displaying in a frame, or collecting on their own these items add to the history of sporting goods and days gone by.  Below are the Heddon Catalogs produced that we are able to find the covers to.  In time we hope to have the complete Heddon Catalog Cover archive here for all to enjoy.

1902 Heddon Catalog 1st Edition²:  15 pages black and white. 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

"Are You A Bait-Caster?"

Referred to as the "One Lure Catalog" as it only shows the Dowagiac lure.

1902 2nd Edition

1902 Heddon Catalog:  22 pages.

"Are You A Bait-Caster?"

1984 Note: This is where a lot of collectors leave Heddon as this is when they left Dowagiac. Heddon was bought by PRADCO (Plastic Research and Development Corporation) and everything was moved to Fort Smith, Arkansas. However there were still a lot of great baits made after this time and some are quite collectible.  For the point of research and future history we will continue on with our page after this point.

One note of historic importance (at least to me).  For the first time since 1928 there is not a River Runt lure in the Heddon Catalog. Quite an historic run and one I still wonder why it ended.  Good thing you can still buy the vintage ones here

1993 Now we enter a period where going forward PRADCO is not really producing individual catalogs for their brands (or very limited) but really a combined master catalog with all of their brands in them. Generally we find only the master catalog and cover. At times a "placeholder" type cover is made available for each brand especially as these catalogs are made more digital in the 2000's. By placeholder we mean that these covers weren't actually in the master final but could be inserted quickly on top of a section of pages to make a quick catalog. For example if Heddon was pages 58-80 of the Master catalog you could digitally grab those pages and put the placeholder cover on top of them and have a quick Heddon catalog. We will show both the PRADCO Master cover and the Heddon "placeholder" cover when it is available.

Interesting fun fact... is it really 100 years in 1994?  Just going back through these catalog covers you can find at least three different dates that Heddon supposedly started.

This is also when the Centennial lures started to arrive.

These are the full size catalogs we believe we are missing from the Pre-Pradco era:
-1904, 1908, 1915, 1919, 1920.

In addition we believe we are missing Sales Builders / Manuals for 1973-74, 1976-77, 1979, 1981 as well as "Heddon Fishing Tackle Sales Manual for Retail Salesmen" Copyright May 12, 1927.

We may also be missing a few smaller size and specialty catalogs.

Test Your Knowledge:  Heddon Catalog Cover FAQ's:

Where was Heddon originally located?
Heddon was located in Dowagiac, Michigan and grew into the world largest manufacturer of tackle during much of the 1900's.

When was Heddon's last catalog from Dowagiac?
The 1984 Heddon catalog was the last Heddon catalog with a Dowagiac, Michigan address on it.  By 1985 it had changed to Ft. Smith, Arkansas.

When did Heddon begin according to their catalogs?
It gets interesting here.  First we will throw out their catalog numbering system that they used early on and assume they were in business prior to catalogs.  As late as the late 1970's / early 1980's we see them claiming 1897 as their start date.  In fact their 1972 catalog is their 75th anniversary.  However by their PRADCO years in the early 1990's it has changed to 1894.  In fact 1894 was their 100th anniversary catalog.  They seemed to have aged an extra three years during this time period.  Only history may know for sure.  1894 is still the date on Heddon material at this time.
