A month or so ago, I purchased this very well ‘fished’ Peter Newell kadaitcha and it has been sitting on the shelf alongside his kad siblings, looking very forlorn and desolate. 

So what do you do ??? - I know, time for a heritage restoration. 

Carefully dismantled and sanded back to bare timber and then off to a very talented local koori artist Jessie Hockey, to work his magic.

 Research and history says Peter Newell originally named his now legendary Kadaitcha lure after the equally legendary Kadaitcha Man from Aboriginal  Dreaming as the medicine man or tribal witch doctor, so with due cultural respect, the work proceeded. 

Yesterday, the ‘Kad Man’ kadaitcha was completed...... enjoy
