Having just been asked if I knew how many colours were done (I have no idea)
I thought it would be interestingto find out.
Hopefully those of you that have one or more will be willing to post pic's of colours not
already shown here.
I will start the ball rolling.
Laurie.

Laurie and Allan
Located some colours similiar/ same as in your posts but reference is to Deep Merlins 85 mm 5 gm
 
11 colours in all 1995 but they are probably larger than the ones you posted.
 
regards John

I believe he is still making a few lures
 
Came out with a barra lure a couple of years back and I haven't heard he has stopped.
