Wm. Croft & Sons started out in Toronto, Canada as Wm. Croft & Co. in 1855. They started out making needles, hooks and fishing tackle. Croft later became a large wholesale store that sold a very wide range of products including fishing tackle. The business names and dates of operation for each are shown below.

  • 1855 - 1882 Wm. Croft & Co.
  • 1882 - 1888 Wm. Croft & Son
  • 1888 - 1930 Wm. Croft & Sons
  • In the early 1900's, Croft manufactured and sold Star and Lowe brand metal lures. Later, they also became the sole distributor of Heddon fishing tackle in Canada.
