Hi all,
My first post but have been a lurker on and off for quite a while. Does anyone know the ID of this lure? It has been a long time but I think I bought it many years ago in Cairns if that helps. (Hopefully I load the pics right first time)
Thanks

This looks like a "Champion" lure, made by Jeff Thompson's (70's / 80's Aust bowler) brother. Very good nic if it's one of his.

I looked for mine - signed by Jeff Thompson, to compare it, but it must be packed away. A search of "Jeff Thompson" should bring up photos of it.

Thanks guys, after checking both of those brands out it looks like it's a Peter Munt.

Profile, bib shape, eyes and colour pattern all match!

Just realising that I also had a couple of his poppers and was buying them from Roly Newton's in Tully. The poppers were great for barra and I lost them eventually... can still remember the last one went on a +1m Barra in the gulf about 13 years ago. Didn't realise what I had at the time which explains why I could never find a replacement!

Found my Champion lure while packing up - a much narrower bib and profile then this so Thumbs Up on having it ID ed as a Munt
