One proof sheet with thirty-six black and white images. Woody Woodward and Al Jones with plastic worms Woodward made as fishing lures. Woodward, with Al Jones, made artificial fishing worms out of plastic for sale in Happy's Bait and Tackle Shop in Inverness.

Date

Description
Seventy-seven color slides. Born in Saginaw, Michigan, Hanson grew up in Rockport, Massachusetts, where he learned to tie fly fish lines from his grandfather. Saltwater fly fishing became popular in Florida in the 1960s. The Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 with a NEA grant of $22,000. The program provided an opportunity for master folk artists to share technical skills and cultural knowledge with apprentices in order to keep the tradition alive. Apprentices must have had some experience in the tradition and agreed to train for at least six months. The first project director was Blanton Owen, later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2003.

Date
1992-03-06
Description
12 color slides. Sam Griffin was the son of a commercial fisher on Lake Okeechobee, who then moved in 1948 to sportsfishing. Sam began making lures to support his father's business. His business had 12 full-time employees, all females, and make 300,000 lures a year. In 1992, the Palm Beach Community College contracted the Florida Folklife Program to conduct ten days of fieldwork in March 1992 around Lake Okeechobee for a Lakefront Legacy Festival later that year (16 May 1992). Headed up by FFP folklorist Debbie Fant, and assisted by Robert Stone and Robert Shanafelt, the fieldwork involved 26 informants, slides, print images and recorded interviews. In the end, the FFP recommended seven people for festival participation.
