Lure pics Old & New - Library

Postby The KFDU Team » Tue Sep 22, 2009 11:27 pm

Members wishing add some pictures of their favourite, old or interesting lures should post them up here. It is best to post a photo of the lure along with it's details in a similar fashion to the Salt & Freshwater fly library. General discussion about each lure should occur in a separate thread, so members don't need to troll through pages of text before getting to the next pic. Specific enquiries should be directed to the poster.

I'll get things started with an oldy...but a goody!

The Arbogast Mudbug...

These are all 5/8 ounce models, new in box. The guy I bought them off, originally bought them in 1970. They are plastic, as Fred Arbogast switched to plastic sometime in the 60s'.

Here's some of mine,

I just happened to come across these on the bay recently at good prices, well the Helins Flatfish were. I was given the Knols Leaping Lizard from someone on Lure and more forum for doing them a favor.

There so hard to buy on the bay now as everyone is into collecting them, like I mean all vintage lures.

Cheers

I also bought this lot last year as a ten buy on the Sweetwater Forum. I reckon these lures look alot like the old Tenterfield dart, I was an idiot a couple years ago and sold an original dart on the bay for a fair price, geez I wish I had it now.

Anyway these lures are Garra Lures and the model is Tera, all hand made by Terry Marshall and signed too. These I have put away, they will never be used. Apparently every lure is slightly different to the next as they are all hand carved from wood. I have been told they are a great yellowbelly and cod lure. Maybe one day I might get one out and try it :snic:

here is a 150 Doof Doc ultra deep diver to 35' and some.
hand crafted from select timber by Graham Chique of Murrbit.
each lure is hand crafted and air brushed to a high gloss finish.
They are a specialist big cod lure whilst some use them to target jews in the salt.
i intend to give them a go over the snapper reefs this summer.

Image

each lure is individual, they are made to catch fish. They have a wide swaggering wobble and roll when trolled and are fitted with triple split rings and VMC hooks. an early use of wire towing point through bib design that has now become widespread.

Although a collectors item, they are intended to catch fish and so this one will see some action this summer..:)

Lets get a little Crazy!

I have always loved the Heddon Crazy Crawler, so its no suprise it makes up a large part of my collection. Over the past few months I have found, hunted and accidently stumbled across some great examples of these old lures.

Here are two of my more favoured Crawlers.

Musky sized #2150 Flocked Mouse Crazy Crawler....Judging by the condition of this lure, I doubt it has been fished at all. Finding Musky sized crawlers in this condition is like finding the gold at the end of the rainbow.

Image

Image

Image

#2100 Crazy Crawler, Donnally Clip Hardware. Original box, with paperwork.

Image

Image

Image

Image

This the earliest model of the Heddon Crazy Crawler. Heddon bought the lure (patent) in 1949 and this was their first official release. Gold chin, Donally hardware and the 2100 size. This is a special lure to me.

More photos to come of my other lures, as I continue cataloging my collection.

Here's a few I started using in the sixties as a teenager. I'll show them in chronological order. The first is a "Knowles Automatic Striker No. 5" and it came from my grandfather. Note original patent of 1903. I used it sparingly and caught mackeral, trevally, barracouta and queenfish on it and didn't manage to lose it which was good because I rarely used a wire trace. The hook released on strike.

P1010014 (Small).JPG
P1010005 (Small).JPG
P1010010 (Small).JPG

This is an early wood (red cedar) crafted lure made by Eric Moller (a neighbour of Vic McCristal). Very popular in the sixties and often featured with Vic McCristal in fishing magazines in the sixties. I had another with clear varnish and spots of the same shape. They were popular for barra and jacks (red bream as we called them).
P1010016 (Small).JPG

My favourite lure in those days was the ABU "killer" at least that it what it was called by the tackle shops back then. It came in two sizes and you see them now with the Rebel brand. They didn't have a lot of action but caught just about everything. As a teenager when living in Home Hill I would pester my mother to take me out to Saltwater Creek just out of town to catch small barra near the bridge on the highway. The multitude of surface strikes as the floodwaters cleared will stay wth me forever. Jumping fish throwing lures left, right and centre. I rarely kept any to eat though as most were undersize. The tarpon and salmon were great jumpers on this lure also but it would catch many other species including cod and Red Bream.

Here's another ABU lure that had an adjustable bib. The Ever popular HI-LOW.

I've got an old Bellbrook lure that a buddy gave me a while back - this one is quite large & used to be used on Big Cod

I don't want to lose it, so probably won't use it! :cool2:

Was going through my dads old tackle and came accross this lure. Condition not 100% but most collectable lures aren't.

*Note: Picture off this website. http://www.lureexchange.com/lures.htm.

As stated on the site about this lure:

#117 TOUGHER HEDDON WOUNDED SPOOK. IN THE "L" PERCH PATTERN. THIS CREAM EYE WHITE BELLY VERSION OF THE PERCH COLOR WAS PAINTED FROM 1971-1980. BY 1975 THE WOUNDED SPOOK WAS OUT OF THE HEDDON LINE UP MAKING THIS WHITE BELLY VERSION HARDER TO FIND THEN THE CLEAR VERSION W/GOLD EYES! NOT TOO MANY OF THESE FLOATING AROUND. EX+ SOLD!

Image

I was going to take this lure Bass fishing but I think I'll hold off. Might be worth a few bucks.
Yak PBs: Bass(Wild)44cm F/L, Bream 37cm F/L, Flathead 78cm, Snapper 50cm, Yellowbelly 54cm

I was cleaning out a draw in the old fishing cupboard & found these old lures some of them I made may a year ago & caught fish on them.

Not sure what I am going to do with them now, maybe put them away for another 20 odd years or leave them in my will for the boys :snic: :snic:
