Does anyone have an Allcock's catalogue listing the Trueform Baits.

Cheers

ABU Tight Lines 1976, 1977, 1978, 1981

Ogden Smiths Season 1956-57

Milwards Season 1938-39, Handbook No. 20, 1953 2nd edition, 1955-56, 1957-1958, 1961, 1962, 1964

Allcocks 1939-1940, 1949-1950, 1953, another around 1955 (with trout rising to a fly on cover), another in blue with a perch on the cover, another in red with line drawings of tackle and fish on cover. I've not been able to find dates on the last 3 but I think they are all from the '50s.

Top Tackle (Allcocks, Lee, Youngs Reels) 1965

Allcocks/Shakespeare 1966
The dace is both lively and lean,
With a beautiful silvery sheen;
He'll snatch at your flies
With a lightning-like rise
And unless you are sharp, he's just been.

CM you can check what Guides you have by the posts with their images in, such as this:


http://traditionalfisherman.com/viewtop ... 230&t=1631

The rising trout is indeed 1955, the blue perch is 1951 and 'line drawings' one sounds like '59.


There are 'proofs' for dating them them all hidden away in the text.

In the above images the third column from the left lists the page numbers containing the proof of year.
