I've had these for a couple of months now
and finally got around to taking a few pics.
Two out of the four are very early lures with Narooma
hand written on them !!

I'm confused Confused, I know not unusual with me of late, but I thought Mick Elliot first made in FNQ, before moving later to Narooma, Sth.NSW?
These are first signed ones I've seen, all my early Darwin Darts had stickers, earlier Barra Plus I've had were from mid 80's, never had any markings.

Nice Barry, you can see a slight Norm Edwards influence in these earlier models.

Cheers,

Mat

Tony
Mick always made his lures in Narooma.
his first production lures went to a local shop it narooma, then to a shop in Darwin,when Jack Erskin heard about them, he started ordering them in large quantities, and took most of the timbers that Mick could make.

Thanks Laurie, that clarifies the FNQ connection. I purchased my early Barra Plus models from Keith Kemp's in Darwin mid 80's. If Jack had them in Cairns at the same time can see the reason, as they were primarily aimed at barra, hence the name.
George Voukolos stocked the different sizes of the timber, stickered Darwin Darts in the late 80's.
Regards, Tony.

Interesting that without the writing I couldn't pick these as Elliot's by the hangers or the eyes
