Here are some of Terry's earlier models.The top deep diver is labelled Garfish,whereas others are marked Barra and 5" and 3" underneath the hand signature.These would all be early to late 80's as far as I know.
The price sticker is from the original Bransford's Tackle Shop at the waterfront in Cairns.$4.80 retail.It would be late 70's to early 80's.

The next ones are early 80's to Mid 80's

The next are very interesting as they are from the 70's early to mid.One has been verified by Terry as 1970 as he made it at High School when he was 16yo.

The last ones are mid to late 70's with some early 80's.

You've blown me away with those ones skipper.
 
The skeleton ones are a good looking lure.
 
Shapes have certainly progressed from the early ones.

Thank you for taking the time to catalogue and share that incredible mountain of information Barry  StarStarStarStarStar

I think I need to scroll back up to admire these beauties some more! Big smile

This thread deserves to be a "sticky" topic (pinned to top of the topic list in the forum) I think Thumbs Up


Cheers, Tony

For the love of Fishing Lures.

Great bunch Barry, that one with the early Bransford's price sticker, a real collectable.
Had no idea he started that early, thanks for showing, first time I visited Cairns I was 21yrs. in 1971 and can remember the original shop on the water, not far from the original marlin weigh gantry.
Regards, Tony.
