    Posted: 09 Aug 2014 at 12:34pm

I have recently been made aware of anther model lure that Ray made.
It is smaller than the All-Rounder, and larger than the Lil-Dynamite.



This particular lure Ray called "The Compain Billabong"
It was never made in large numbers, (less than 30), and was specifically made for Ray to fish the billabong areas around Darwin.

When Tony Compain asked Ray if he would like to come back for a second visit to the top end, Ray decided to create anther model which better suited the shallow billabongs.
The All-Rounder dived deeper than needed, and became frequently snagged.
The average size of Barra encountered in these billabongs allowed for a reduction in lure size.
And so the Compain Billabong was devised.

This particular lure in the above pic, is painted in one of the personal colours favored by Ray.

I have had the good fortune to put another lure of this model into my collection.
And as you would expect, painted in one of Rays preferred colour schemes.
