A great box of lures obtained at a clearing sale in my town that I thought wouldn't be worth attending.                                Well done Steve.                                                                                                                                                                 Cheers, Jim

I wonder, looking at these early ones, if he got the idea of the bib from a sheep shearers comb?
Maybe first one he ever made used a real worn out one, what are your thoughts?

Always been written that the serrated bib was copied from the Mudbug which was successful in Lake Mulwala where a deep diving lure was not necessary.
So I think this is a great box of early Ken Hendrys with centred pupil eyes combined with both round and unserrated metal bibs.
Cheers, Jim
