Do you know who the maker is or are you just showing you have the same thing?

I’m pretty sure the lure in my pic is the same lure found. Made by a good friend of mine Dan Bromham from Wagga Wagga in NSW. He used to live up here in Weipa. He said he lost those lures 3 weeks ago, 1 to a snag and 1 to a fish that bricked him.

I started making lures a couple of years ago and Dan took an interest in what I was doing so I showed him what I knew at the time ( the basics) and now he has he’s own addiction.
Lol. I warned him.

Shit Jobbo ,took ya 3 weeks to find them
Certainly is a small world Chances of you finding them and then finding a guy in Weipa who knew a guy that made them and lost them from Wagga Wagga and you are in Wollongong Small world
Cheers Kimo
Forgot to mention Jobbo I lost $50 in Adelaide on the cup the other day if ya happen to come across it give me a call

hey Kimo , you are right about the luck bit, but in this day of social media and sites like Lure lovers it is certainly making the world a smaller place.

I am heading back up to Burrinjuck in 4 weeks for a bit of cod fishing, so I will be doing my usual bank walks , searching for lures and other lost treasures when the fishing is slow. It is amazing what you find when the dam level drops. This last trip we found 5 rods , two reels , outboard motor parts and a tackle back and only 14 lures. the best trip so far was 52 lures.LOL
