Here's a few more Hard At It lures. I love how each one has it's own unique shape and style, it's like each lure is showing off its special personality.

Dave, just found one of these like the purple one in your earlier post.
Found in a small tackle shop near the Jetty, Coffs Harbour. Only two left on the wall, owner said made by his cousin David Glenn from Inverell. Sorry, can't post a pic as away from home at present.
Regards, Tony.

Are these lures still being made? There is some on ebay every week at 35 a piece, I would love to get more, can some one help me with a supplier if they are still available or someone would like to sell me some.

Cheers
