Tide Runner Surf Casting Co.

 The Tide Runner Surf Casting Co., Bronx, New York was founded by Roy Whitehead. Roy was a very well known striped bass fisherman in the New York / New Jersey area. He did a lot of testing and experimentation with lures over the years, especially flap-tails. From what I gather so far he sold lures under his name before forming the Tide Runner Surf Casting Co. in the 1940's. Early Whitehead lures used screw eyes for hook hangers; on his later lures he used homemade wire hook hangers.
