Here's some examples of Old man Lures Bibless range


On top is the 150mm Version (the largest)

Bottom Left is 60mm (the smallest)

Bottom Right is 90mm

There was also a 120mm version made
(if you have one I'd love to hear from you!)





An extract from the price sheet for Old Man Lures:

Old man Lures are in use in every state of Australia & have been exported to PNG, Fiji, New Zealand, Lord Howe Island. All lures are gauranteed to swim, and come in a range of 30 colours. They can also be finished in your own favourite colours at no extra cost.

Cheers, Tony

The largest bibless Old man Lure sold was 150mm, although this pic of a model approx 260mm long was in the images sent to me by Jeff Adams

I imagine this may have been a one-off lure made for personal use - I love the paint scheme on this! Clap

Well it looks like my guessing was accurate for once! Big smile

Just got an email back from Jeff, here's what he said about the big 26cm Bibless lure:

"Yeah, that 26cm bibless was a one off, it's swims unbelievably well, can handle 10knots.
Dad made that for Cato etc, but it never got used. We wanted something to compete against the big Yo-Zuris that were around at the time."

Cheers, Tony
