ACME Tackle Company -
In 1952, Art Lavallee founded the ACME Tackle Company. Art field tested and then modified a new lure, making it longer and giving it the jewelry like finish for which Acme lures are famous. This lure would soon become the Kastmaster. The Kastmaster was quickly accepted by both fresh and saltwater anglers. An amazingly versatile lure, the Kastmaster is equally deadly whether cast, trolled, or vertically jigged. It casts like a bullet, and its unique side-to-side darting action is something which pursued baitfish do, but which ordinary spoons do not. In 1980 Acme purchased the former Seneca Tackle Co., and now makes the popular Little spoons, as well as many other types of metal spoons for fresh and saltwater fishing. Today, Acme continues to manufacture, assemble, and package all of its lures at its Providence, Rhode Island plant. Acme's company goal is the same as it was in 1952 -- to produce the world's finest metal fishing lures.
