In 1900 the first Shakespeare evolutions were produced, and was also offered in a buck tailed version. The bait was available in 3 sizes, 3 inches, 4 inches and 6 inches.  They were very popular in Michigan and were the lure that made the Shakespeare company a tackle making contender.  In 1907 they were available in three colours.  These lures have been valued at up to $1,500.
