Here's some pics of Old Man lures that belong to Jeff who's "Old Man" made these lures at Dundowran, a suburb of Hervey Bay QLD Smile Jeff kindly gave me permission to post these pics up.

Jeff also made the lures for a while after his Dad stopped making them, although they haven't been made for quite a while now.

There's lots of info to come on these - Jeff is forwarding me a load of info including articles written on the lures  - watch this space!














Cheers, Tony

A package turned up today with some great info from Jeff, including a price list that lists the majority of the models - I'll be putting all of the info up on the site shortly. Clap

The largest lure made was the "Super Donger" which was 275mm - you had the option of getting it with 2 belly hooks plus the tail hook, or one belly hook and the tail hook.

From top to bottom in your 1st pic, here's the model names (assuming the lengths are what I've mentioned below)

"Pee Wee" 125mm
"Mini Donger" 170mm
"Donger" 225mm
"Super Donger" 275mm,
