Here's a few GN poppers that were made by Gordon and Margaret Nunn in Gordonvale QLD. I don't think they have been made for some time, although have no idea on the dates.






And here's a little one that was in a dust covered packet hiding in a corner of a tackle shop in Cairns Big smile

Cheers, Tony

Hi Tony, These are great examples of GN Lures... I notice though that noone seems to have any of the Lead Jig Heads or trolling heads.. they were very popular!.... The one at the bottom is a much later version. We (The Nunn Family) only ever used GN Lures stickers as labels. The busines was sold in the mid 90's and the new owner used this kind of stamp for the label. I believe that GN Lures didn't stay open long after it was sold and my dad Gordon was no longer making them.

Thanks Cass

I don't think I've seen the Jig Heads or Trolling Heads (some of our northern members might recall them though), I'd love to see some picture if you have any.

I wouldn't be too surprised if some of our members have some, although quite often we have a lot of unidentified lures so there could be some of those treasure hiding amongst them without us knowing!
