Re: Nick Wyshinski's Shellfish Oil
I remember Nick, although I haven't seen or spoken to him in years. Nick collected a lot of information on lure ingredients and lure compounding. Back in the late 1950s-early 1960s Nick was involved with the NTA. Dated myself a bit there.
At PTA conventions Nick used buy glands from trappers with which to make his lures with. He also wrote a book, very probably the best selling trapping book ever written, Muskrats, The Trapper's Meal Ticket. I don't know how many thousands of that little book were sold, but it was many. I noticed in the past few years my own copy got away. I probably loaned it to somebody.
I trap mink because I don't know any better
