Bob Adams made 2 Deepdiving Freshwater lure models - these lures had no specific model name and were simply called "Deep Diving Freshwater Lure"

This lure came in 50mm and 70mm sizes

Here's examples of this model

I agree Simon and Pete, they are beaut looking lures Thumbs Up

I believe these two are the only two models I need to complete the set of Old man Lures I am lucky enough to provide a safe home to (with the exception of a few of depth and hook variations)

Oh, and of course there are I believe a few "one-offs" as Lure makers always seem to do, if for no other reason than to keep life interesting for collectors Big smile LOL

Yes it was on ebay - as soon as I saw it I was determined to get it - a phenomena I call "Lure Lust" 6560

I think you realise by now Barry that there is a one way traffic rule for me when it comes to Old Man Lures - by the way your "ex" Old Man lures are being well looked after, especially that tasty Chop Bone! Big smile

Tony the lures in those first pics of yours are awesome. Nothing like my two Oldman Lures (kinda trout bait shaped). The shape and colour pattern remind me of the old Shakespeare Big S lures.
Hi I'm Ropes and I'm addicted to fishing lures.
