M.T. Publishing Company is excited to offer a historic new look of the Heddon family and the company they founded through the fascinating journey that spanned over 150 years and two continents.

This new title is not a book about Heddon baits, even though those baits were the reason for the world-wide interest in the Heddon company and their many products, but about the people and events behind those baits. First known as the James Heddon and Son company, it grew to become the world's largest manufacturer of fishing lures. This is the story of the Heddon family's immigration to America, and ultimately to Dowagiac, Michigan where they founded Heddon Lures.
