Assembly

I did my usual sorting routine.

  1. Sorting to locate all  the outside border pieces, while....
  2. Placing the pieces into the 'general-color' piles. 
  3. Then I carried on with a second round of sorting (similar colors sorted by shades/patterns) while placing the pieces flat out on the poster boards. 

The border went together fairly easy so it was only a matter of piecing together the colored fishing Lures. I started with the most prominent colors being yellow, red and greens. I just continued to build the Lures and then the text that goes with them. The steely hooks were a little testy but the puzzle shapes helped with that.

Comments...

The Springbok - Lures of Long Ago is a delightful experience that went together smoothly and in great time. This being a Thrift store purchase for .50 cents, I am very pleased all the pieces are available which is always like a little bonus.

Take a look at the lovely array of Vintage Lures with the Year dated in the following close up photos - super fun!!!!
