(C1. «i3-44) The invention relates to fish lures, and has conductor material and an axially disposed con for its object to provide a transparenter trans tact II, forming the positive and negative 'sides lucent lure body with illuminating means therein ' of the battery. Interposed between the battery 9, ' to attract fish. _ and the bottom of the chamber I2, is an expan A further object is to form the body from a sion spring I3, which is compressed and which Ul plurality of sections, detachably connected to serves to insure a contact at all times between gether, a battery in -one of said sections and a the contact member II and the contact member lamp holdingyleldable member carried by the I4 of the electric lamp I5, which is of conven- ‘ battery axially therewith and adapted to engage tional construction. The lamp I5 is threaded into a'shoulder within the other section and be forced a split socket I6, which socket is carried by the towards the battery for closing the circuit and oppositely extending spring arms I1.

It will also be noted that venting inward movement of the split sleeve when upon a partial unscrewing of the sections, the the sections are screwed together for the circuit circuit will be broken without entirely discon 25 closing operation.

In the drawing: - Figure 1 is a side elevation of the fish lure. Figure 2 is a vertical longitudinal sectional view. through the lure. ' Figure 3 is avvertical longitudinal sectional view through theadjacent ends of the lure sections, showing the parts being assembled. Figure 4 is a perspective view of the lamp car rying member. 45 1 ` Referring to the drawing, the numeral I desig nates the head of the lure, which is provided with together at'24 and a gasket 25 is provided be 30 tween the sections to prevent leakage of water into the chamber of the lure incident to pressure when submerged. Although the device ls shown as being vvformed of glass, it is to be understood 35 it can be formed of any material, through which light rays may pass, for instance celluloid, and applicant does not limit himself in this particular. It will be noted `that by providing the annular rib 22, the axially disposed lamp contact I4 will 40 be positively seated, no matter how it is placed on the battery 9 or the radial position of the spring arms I1, therefore it will be seen the de vicewill positively work, even with Va variation of thickness of the gasket 25, which would place 45 the arms I1 in different radial positions. a conventional means 2, to which .a line may be The split sleeve I8 is preferably provided with attached for a fishing operation. The member 2 is provided with a head 3 within the chamber 4 of the lure head and the lure head is threaded at 5 onto the threaded extension of theforward lure body section 1. Lurebody section 1 is provided extension arms 26, which engage the bottom of ' with a chamber s, in which is disposed a remov ß use, and it will not be necessary to disassemble the entire lure. Sections ‘i and 2I are threaded able battery 9 of conventional type. The battery 9 has the usual sleeve I0 formed of the counter-bore 20 for maintaining the split sleeve I8 at the end of the battery. 50 'I'he circuit is through the battery sleeve In, split sleeve I8, spring arms I'I,socket I6, the lamp sleeveZl, through the lamp filament and thence through the lamp contact Il to the other contact I I of the battery. 55 2 2,121,114 The rear end ot the lure body section 2| is provided with a reduced threaded extension 28, on which is threaded the rear end 29 of the lure body. Rear end 28 has imbedded and held there in the eye 30 of the hook Il. This is preferably done by a casting operation. .' From the above it will be seen that a ñsh lure is provided, which is illuminated, and one where in the light rays will be projected from a central 10 point'on the axis of the lure, and towards the hook. It will also be seen that the device is simple in construction and the parts reduced to a mini mum. The invention having been set forth what is 15 claimed as new and useful is: 1. An illuminated fish lure comprising a body through which light rays will pass, said body being formed from chambered detachably connected sections, a battery in the chamber of one of said 20 sections, a conductor member encircling the bat tery within the battery section, a contact cen trally of the battery, a lamp socket axially dis posed within the chamber of the' other section, a lamp in the socket and having a contact in the 25 path of the battery contact, spring arms connect ing the socket and the member encircling the moved towards each other for closing the circuit between the battery and lamp. 2. The combination with a fish lure comprising chambered sections, a battery in one of said sec tions, a lamp in the other section, a socket in which said lamp is disposed, a conductor member surrounding the battery, spring arms connecting said socket and the sides of the conductor mem ber and supporting said socket, said socket being axially supported by the spring arms connecting 10 it to the sides of the conductor member, contact members carried by the lamp and battery and shoulder means within one of the sections and cooperating with the spring arms for forcing the socket towards the battery when the parts are 16 moved towards each other. 3. An illuminated lure comprising separable chambered sections, a battery within the chamber of one of the sections, a conductor member car ried by the battery, a lamp carrying yieldable 20 member carried by the conductor member, and a shoulder within the chamber of the other lure section and cooperating with the lamp carrying yieldable member and so constructed and ar ranged that the lamp carrying yieldable member 25 is forced towards the battery when the 'sections~ battery and a shoulder within one of the sections are moved towards each other for closing a circuit in the path of the spring arms and adapted to flex them towards the battery when the sections are between the battery and lamp.
