I recently swapped out some old Nilsies for a set of Fysshe Calliopes. Ian didn't muck around, and quickly did a restoration job on the Nilsies with new bibs and fresh paint. He just txt me the photo them this morning, they came up pretty sweet!

Before



After



Nice work Ian!

Always liked the Nilsy colour schemes, our first lures in the early 70's were based on those colours.

Ian do you only refurb timber lures. Whould you repaint moulded lures providing they are not chewed up and only the paint worn off cheers Jason.

Awesome would love to see a few pictures some time. I love my Reidys but often pass up some old ones due to their condition. I will start getting them and will get them brought back to life from you mate. I recon the old mighty mites have a cool action cheers mate.

Yeah, the Mighty Mites and Lil Amazons were great lures and almost indestructible, but their only flaw was that the paint jobs used to suffer! I had some with almost no paint but still catching fish.
