I have quite a few ltls.
These lures were awesome taking manny fish species from whiting to small marlin and large Pelagics.
These were made by Austin chandler in his garage on freshwater st in Hervey Bay ( bout a block away from the old fisho's shop) to start. Where I bought many of the lures I still have today .
Austin was a member of the Hervey Bay branch of Ansa at the time from memory. The lures were designed for use on light tackle hence ltl - light tackle lure. The best performance was on tackle up to 6 kg. Cast and trolled really well .
The lures went through a few shape changes and many colour changes, over a few years whilst Austin was making them. I believe the buisnes may have been sold and they werediscontinued.
I still have many of these tucked away in all shapes and colours. and consider Austin as one of my inspirations when I started making my own lures when I was 14 years old in Hervey Bay ansa club some 30 years ago now !

Do you think these could be early LTL's?, can't remember where I came by them, but they look similar and old.
