Sorry to see you finish up Allan. Your lures have always been right up there with the best in the business both for finish and fish catching ability.

Gday Allan

Sorry to hear you're winding up the lure making, you have a great talent for it!

I'm sure you'll do well at whatever you pursue in future - hopefully that includes a lot more fishing and playtime Smile

Please remember to let me know when you're up this way so we can wet a line Fishing


Cheers, Tony

For the love of Fishing Lures.

What goes around comes around . Being nasty to somebody can come back to bite you in the butt . Hate to here your going to retire your lure making . Sometimes you can go away then wake up one morning with the idea that takes the world by storm . Best Regards watching for the grand return.
You and I can make a positive difference in someones life every day if only for a moment.
