Wow when you put a couple of these lures next to each other you can see where what was made and whom may have taught and shared idea's ?

I assume this Newell lure is a Guppy, but crikey when next to a Dart it's a twin Big smile

Is it a Guppy ?

Maybe where Trevor got the idea from, you should ask him.

Seaweed.

Peter allowed Trevor to make the Guppy and Kadaitcha shapes, hence the close similarity. The Guppy was the first lure that Peter showed me how to carve.  I made Guppys for a year or two before I modified the shape and called it the Digger.

Occasionally, I get comments about the Digger being copied from the Dart but the reality is that the Dart and Digger both started life as Peter's Guppy.

Cheers
