Hump Lures Back
Our museum is host to a collection of Hump Lures.

Earl F. (hump) and Dorothy Humphreys began manufacturing fishing lures in El Campo, Texas in 1955.  Hump Lures... "Don't get bumps, catch fish with Humps"... proved so effective at catching fish that they soon became a fast-selling item throughout most of the southern United States. 


The Hump Lures and historical papers and documents (minus the secrets) featured in this exhibit are the donated private collection of Mr. and Mrs. Humphreys, becoming a permanent part of the historical collections of the El Campo Museum in 1995.
