Falconry Equipment

Frank Beebe Lures

Probably the earliest example of the "flapping" lures made popular by Frank. I won this lure in the late 60's at a field meet in B.C. in the lure flying competition with a female Lugger falcon. It was presented to me by Frank.

It has the plumage sketched in ink and has the watchspring leading edge to make it flap. It is well used as I have used all my Beebe lures excluding the Ptarmigan lure.

This ptarmigan lure was used by Frank to trap Gyrfalcons. Came to me via Terry Spring who was gifted this lure by Frank.



I have created a mail list for falconers called Canadian Falconry. All falconers are welcome and we have falconers from around the world on the list.

Due to demand I have also created a mail list for serious longwingers called appropriately enough Longwingers. This is not a beginners list and subscriptions are approved by myself.
