Here's some examples of the Old Man "Donger" Lures


On top is the "Super Donger" 275mm
Could be purchase with either 1 or 2 belly hooks (this particular lure is one of 3 prototypes that were made using gal wire as Bob Adams didn't have S/S wire thick enough at the time)

Second down is the "Donger" 225mm
1 Belly Hook only

Bottom Left is "Mini Donger" 170mm

Available in shallow or deep diver

Bottom Right is "Pee Wee" 125mm
Available in shallow or deep diver


Cheers, Tony

For the love of Fishing Lures.

Extract from promotional material:

The Donger Series have been proven on the northern reefs, taking anything from Coral Trout, all Tuna Species, Cobia, Wahoo, Mackeral etc. The Mini Donger holds (or held) PNG all tackle Mackeral record.

A few more examples of the Mega Tough Donger and Super Donger models from Old man Lures.

The three lures at the top are all of the prototype lures that were made for the SuperDonger.
