Interesting one Sticko, it does have that look about it.

I wonder who molded the lures for Norm? The reason I ask is that Al Dolan (Lively Lures) often tested the mold design for new customers without the name embossed at first, after the customer signs off on the design the brand embossing is added for the finished product to be manufactured.


Cheers, Tony

For the love of Fishing Lures.

centre eyelet isn't like the other timber norm edwards i have seen

they are generally angled forward and sunk into the body a bit more

Tony Allan Dolan did the molding for norm edwards.  he had some timbers and plastic norm edwards at the expo for a while.Big smile
