Collector's Encylopedia of Creek Chub Lures and Collectibles:This is by far my favorite book. Great history, details and lots of color photos. Highly recommend this book for Creek Chub.

Fishing Lure Collectibles:  Volume two hardcover book.  Beautiful with lots of color photos.  One of the best general reference books.  By Richard Streater.

Fishing Lure Collector's Bible:  This truly is the one that started it all.  The early version was a three ring binder.  This is the print version.

Heddon Legacy:The best book on Heddon in my opinion. Beautiful and informative.

History and Collectible Fishing Tackle of Wisconsin:  Great book by Robert Slade. Covers the great lures of Wisconsin, my home state.  

Identification and Value Guide to South Bend Fishing Lures:Simply The Bible on South Bend lures. Great book.

Lurecraft: How to Make Plugs, Spinners, Spoons, and Jigs to Catch More Fish:  If you've ever thought about making your own lures this book is a must have.  Taught me how to make my own spinners and some wooden plugs.

Old Fishing Lures & Tackle 6th Edition:This is my go to book for all lures that I don't have a specific book on. This has been updated to an 8th version but I honestly prefer the 6th version and good news it is cheaper to buy.

Shur Strike Minnows:  The History, Models and Colors of Creek Chub's Shur Strike Lures:  This is the best book on Shur Strike lures.  One of my favorite books and lures to collect.
