Reidy originally made his lures in Queensland and later moved to the Northern Territory

Is anyone able to help me seperate this lot into a pile for each state? Confused



I'm certain about some of the later ones being from NT, however there's a lot more I'm not sure about.

e.g. Were the metal bibbed Aqua Rats made in Qld?

What about the ones with the flexible plastic bib?

I imagine the first ever moulded ones were QLD, or is my assumption wrong?

I've been very lazy with this part of my collection and they get chucked in a draw to "sort out later"

I figure now is later and I should give them a little bit of attention before they get thrown back in the draw LOL
Cheers, Tony

The moulded plastic with flexable bib was his first attempt at mass production..
They are Queenslanders.

I am confident the big barras, mighty mites, little amazons and aquarats were all made in QLD. I have these dating back to 15-20 years ago. The newer models - little lucifer (2 different shapes) the judge, the B52's (small & large), and Big Boss may have been made up north. The grey area could be the Taipans and Goulburn jacks. The early taipans and original lucifer could well have been made west of Mackay....but I am not sure.
