Thank you for sharing this one with us Barry. There's something about Keith's lures that had me "hooked" from the start, and this is a particularly nice one with a few special features.
I'm constantly in awe of Keith's carving skills and his finishes were well ahead of his time. An absolute master of lure making who I would nominate for a "Hall of Fame".
Regards,
Col

How good is that!!!!! Big smile

You are number 1 when it comes to tracking down lures Barry  Clap


p.s. I think mine has long shank hooks in the claws, more intricate body, and is older, so I'd better keep it locked up! Confused LOL











Cheers, Tony

For the love of Fishing Lures.

My first glimpse of Keith's lures was in a fellows tackle box at Windemere Dam about 18-19 years ago, the fellow (I think his last name was George?) Was a travelling rep from Dubbo and he was showing Keith's lures around too shops for him. I remember being in absolute awe of what was in that box. A famous old blues musician tells a story of when he was younger, that he was offered a lesson on playing slide guitar off an elderly blues player. The old guy had a medicine bottle that he used for slide, after listening too him play, he got up, handed him his brand new shop bought slide, turned and walked away. He was asked why he did leave? and he answered "I could not compete with that, so best to just walk away. I felt a little of that looking into the box. Keith later contacted me about making his bodies quicker, out of wood I had nothing to suggest but put him in contact with Lively Lures, that's when the fella who's name escapes me??? Bought the rights to the Baker Cray, Cheers Paul.
PS: Some of the lure shapes in that box, I kid you not! Have never been seen, ( by me at least) on any lure sites.

some blokes were using that lure at good hope last year and catching twenty yellas a day  
they were call it a Burrinjuck special, but i tried to buy them , Yass, Cootamundra, Queanbeyan, Canberra,now i know that lure is not Stuckey's .. the hook in the claw makes a big difference to the hook up rate , 
thanks for the post Tony , this is a great Aussie lure site 
the claws are moulded plastic , body wood

Christinna, If you get the chance to see a cray/yabby in a tank, you will see that while they crawl forward to feed and move, when under duress from a predator, they use a tail flick under the body topropel themselves backwards with great speed. Hence most Yabby shapes have the bib at what looks to be the rear of the lure.

Thanks Brad, while I am fascinated by fishing lures my lack of fishing knowledge and experience always comes back to haunt me. They seem to go hand in hand and I appreciate anyone who takes the time to share their experience and knowledge ( even if I do ask some silly questions ).
Christina.

Dont worry Christina if you never ask you will never know.Asking a question when you dont know is not silly but on the other hand pretending to know everything when you dont is silly.Members on this site will be more than happy to explain things so ask away
