Abingdon Resident Recently Received Lure Patent

Abingdon - Fishermen are always looking for an edge or a secret. They continually seek out the hidden fiThere are no other doublewired spinner baits currently on the market and the double wired design has several distinguishing features. We have had discussions with a professional fisherman interested in endorsing this lure under his name in conjunction with his lure sponsors. In the meantime, we are going to the ICAST fishing show in Las Vegas. The goal is to convince major companies such as Bass Pro shops and larger distributors of fishing lures to carry THE Doublewired spinner bait in their stores.d of the game. The 63 year old Abingdon resident has spent countless hours on lakes and streams catching all manner of fish with his homemade equipment. In fact, Moore just received a United States utility patent on a spinner bait.

The name of Moore's lure is Doublewired. "I've got a little room in my house where I make stuff like crank bait and jiggs all the time,"Moore said." This is the first time I've had anything patented though." As with all inventions, Moore's creation entailed plenty of planning, design and refinement. "It was a three year process," Moore said. "I worked and worked until I was satisfied. The first day I took my spinner bait out on the lake I caught a 7 pound bass. That was a good feeling."

Moore realizes he is entering a crowded and evolving market, yet feels his product made of lead and stainless steel wire is unique. "There are an unreal number of products available to fishermen," Moore said. "Some work and some don't." That's just part of the sport. "My lure maintains its shape after repeated uses and is less likely to tangle or damage the line during casts."

Other benefits include the ability to run true at any retrieval speed along with an increased vibration feel gives the fishermen a quicker sign that a fish is hitting," said Moore. "The Doublewired has worked really well on South Holston Lake," Moore said. "I've caught lots of muskies and walleyes with it, including a 42 - inch muskie."

The next step is licensing and marketing. Cathy Lowe, Moore's daughter, has taken the lead in that time consuming process as business manager. "My husband Stephen, who is a mechanical engineer, did all of the drawings for the U.S. patent," Lowe said. "That saved us a lot of time and money. I pursued the patent with the attorneys until we achieved the issue. A utility patent covers the design as well as the use of the lure."

"To see my product in a store - that would be a proud day," Moore said. "This product should especially appeal to tournament fishermen."

The Mountain Empire is full of interesting outdoorsmen, and Moore fits that mold. The certified welder, journey- man ironworker and small engine mechanic actually fished the Middle Fork of the Holston Dam that transformed South Holston Lake was built. "I still remember that opening day on the South Holston since then, but it remains a home and proving ground for Moore. I fish there 2 - 3 days a week at times, including winter," Moore said. "Nothing beats experience."[/url]
