I was thinking of how to assist the farmers hurting from the drought and thought I'd challenge the lure crafters out there to put up a couple of their lures to auction with proceeds going to their fave drought charity. Proof of donation via a receipt posted after the auction. Thought a good name for the challenge would be "Fishing for Fodder" and would be a win/win for all, you get to donate to a good cause and get some unique lures for your bucks if you win the auction.

I'd like to kick it off with 3 CRAFT nudies in different timbers, signed and dated. Proceeds to go to Buy a Bale.

Auction ends Monday 27th August 2018 at 1700hrs.

Lures are top to bottom: Hoop Pine, Western Red Cedar, Red Cedar.

Was kind of hoping everyone would do their own, Blinky, but let's see how this one goes first.

Congratulations Ken - you get the lures. Thanks to everyone who put in a bid - I must confess that I thought we'd get a lot more action than we did but with Ken's heroic bid of $150.00 it is still a good result.
Ken, I'll pm you for details.

I must also confess. I didn't think I missed much that when on in this forum based on the frequency that I visit, but I obviously don't spend as much time as I thought I did because I missed this. 
I can only assume that given the amount of posts that people put up during the coarse of the day that it quickly disappears from the main/front page before the majority of people can see it. Perhaps running the auction for longer than a few days might see more users viewing it. Just a thought.
Its a good idea so ill have to see what I can do to contribute.
