Jenson Distributing Co.
Froglegs, were first introduced as a product from Modern Sporting Goods from Austin Texas, in the late 1940's post war. Later changing their name to Jenson Distributing and moving to Waco Texas. Froglegs that come in the two piece cardboard boxes are highly sought after lures, and those that come with the early Modern Sporting Goods boxes with the cartoon graphics are even more sought after. We are happy to have some of these and others on the way, as we build our collection of these amazing mechanical frogs. They came in a surface model series 104 and subsurface model series 204 in weedless and trebble versions. They came in six colors, and considered among the best frog baits ever. They actually caught fish and became a favorite for many anglers searching for Largemouth Bass. Listed in the Field & Stream top 30 lures to collect because of the great ability of the lure but also for the creative artwork on the packaging. Forglegs are our favorite frog lure to collect we are always looking for great pieces to add to our collection.
