Well looking for something in my messy shed I came across and old little box, looking inside I found the FIRST wooden lure that I made Shocked I thought that this lure had gone the same way as the DodoCry but here it was plus some other blanks from a year or two latter .This lure was made in 1969 I had been making lures from metal (spoons) since 1968.Anyway here it is and it swims ShockedClapClapClap

Fish hate me!!!

Cheers Gary

Well done mate!

Nice find, Flacco. Now that you've finally found that lure, can we go fishing?

Now, put somewhere safe so that you can find it again. Looking forward to seeing that lure. 1969. That is an oldie.   

Cheers
