That death adder would be nice on a lure. Don Lawson used the skin off a red belly black snake and he reckons it totally nailed the cod.

Verlon Caudill (in Tennasee) who is a member here is the guy who knows how to stick and finish snake skin etc, check out some of his old posts here.
Sorry I can't remember his avatar on here.

Yep a death adder, the largest ones are found around the Illawarra. Ours in Cooktown are usually about 50 cm long, about half the size as  those in southern NSW.

Brother in law down here on the coast (near Batemans Bay) killed one last spring (about 1 M), a lot darker than one pictured though--
I never knew they were this far South- We marauded around the mountains behind Wollongong for years as a kid, saw black snakes and carpet snakes, never heard of these--eeeeeeeeeek.
