Makinen Tackle Co.

William Makinen started his business in 1946, he had been carving and fishing with his own lures for many years before 1946. The early and very hard to come by lures were made of wood before he switched to Tenite in 1947. Based in Kaleva Michigan this company produced some of the finest fishing lures to ever be crafted, a testament to the Finnish craftsmen who have given much to the sport of fishing in North America. With 6 amazing lures to chose from in many great colors this is one Company we are excited to collect.
