Blue Fox -
Blue Fox, originally the National Expert Bait Company based in Minneapolis, was purchased by the Normark Company in 1968. In 1978 the National Expert Bait Company went through dramatic changes in operation and manufacturing and the Blue Fox Tackle Company was formed, focusing on the production of top-quality spoons and spinner lures. The company was relocated to prime Minnesota fishing country, and revived with smart new lures, ones which catered to an industry increasingly fascinated with a scientific approach to fishing. In 1979 a line of spinner baits designed in conjunction with noted bass angler Roland Martin put Blue on the map. The company followed with the Super Vibrax spinner and Pixee Spoons which gained admirers among salmon and trout anglers in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. Today Blue Fox still produces its famous spoons and spinners and is devoted to developing the highest quality tackle available to anglers.
