George, The blue one may not be flicks it may be one that was done after Flicks & before they were called Blitz Bagga lures.  the eyes & rear hook hanger were a thing that was changed after Flick had them, Flick allmost always signed his as well, the age of the flicks would have to be nearly 20 years old. cheers Tim.

The Blue one is still a Flicks Cobra 15, just a recent (within 5 years) The nose on them got widened to add some strength. The tri-colour eye red and black one would be up to 20+ years old. The only relationship between the Cobra and the Blitz Baga is the shape. The Cobra came first. The Blitz Baga was basically flat with a slight keel underneath, the Cobra more rounded in the belly. the Cora also has a slight dish in the belly front to back, more pronounced in the 20+

Tim, Flick gave it away about 18m-2 years ago after a health hiccup. He sold all the Cedar, jigs etc he had to a well known fishing identity in SEQ, who may or may not do them again in timber.
I haven't confirmed it yet, but am lead to believe Flick is now having the Cobras moulded.

Bluey , the red/black Flicks is close to 20years old.
The blue one is much later...after 2000.
