I am hoping someone could please help me know more about these lures i cannot find them anywhere on here.They where made of a plastic of some kind, not sure who made them but they all had "ambush lures" signed under the tail section.

I do have one left but the other was stolen by a bass it used to catch some thumpers!

Hope someone can help thanks

Here's a few Steve, they were all moulded poly foam when in production.
Originally made by Steve Muchow of Wellington Point, he moved to Beaudesert later on and stopped production in1995.

Your Joking ! Ive lived in Beaudesert since 1989, My great uncle had Arthy's toys and gifts in the main street of town and he gave me these 2 for a birthday when i was only 8. Not long after they retired and closed the shop.

Bloody minds boggling

Thanks Brad

If i said i was 8 a "few years after" could have been quite a few

Sorry about that, I talk to Keith as much as i can and fish with one of his sons nearly every week. I havent got a very good grasp of this timeline thing.

Did you know Keith well ? I have to get a blank to him for my blackfish rod soon.

I used to call on him every month or 2 for about 2 years when I was selling tackle in a previous life.
haven't been back that way since starting the new career...

Are you still producing those lures Steve? I was given two small ones by Alan Sloman on the weekend as I'd spotted them in his tacklebox.
