3 BassTad's (earlier one at front)

and first cousin the small G Lure by the other brother, similar shape just a little slimmer in the tail.

OUr boats are all called BASSTARD so from an early age my son has had a thing for Basstad lures. Every time I score them he taxes them. Another quality Aussie product.

John, it appears that the Forrestwood guys have stopped, couldn't compete with the Asian imports.
There are still a few in the 11 mile TackleWorld store, don't know for how much longer?
This is where I found those old poppers I posted up recently. Last time I browsed the Kmart at Casuarina, last week, they no longer appear on the shelves.
Will take a drive out to TackleWorld and see whats left, maybe even grab a couple before they go.Cry
Regards, Tony.

I found one in Dalby {south east Qld} at a camping store.  It is the one in the packet closest to front of picture.  Just wondering is it a metal bibbed lure or painted poly???    Cheers Chris

Would the metal bibs be an earlier model or were both bibs introduced at the same time.
