Using all this "at home" time to do some clean up and organization and when I was going through my trout gear thought the members might enjoy this.  As has been stated elsewhere, Carl Newell's primary business was plastic injection molding.  I have two of these leader holder packs; and have had them since the early 1970's for holding trout bait leaders, and they are continuing to serve me well.  I didn't notice until today the "Carl Newell Manufacturing, Glendale, CA" on the package.  I looked up the patent information, and Carl applied for the patent for this product in March - of 1953!

They made the newellies 2 ways,  plastic with a hook screwed onto it and the other screwed to a metal jig. The ones with just the hook would be hard to fish, like casting a potato chip, I guess it could be trolled behind a weight or something.  The heavy one would be good for wahoo.

I used both of them in the 70s and 80s.
Used to use a spool of 10# mono with the terminal tackle wrapped around the tangle free. WIth a bucket of 3 or 4 live chovies I'd catch bass, croaker and halibut up and down the Oceanside docks.

The BEST times.
