Hello Friends in Australia,

I just sign up to this forum and I found it by accident. In the west coast of California we use this certain type of metal jigs to hunt our fishes. I would like to know if Australia have use or seen this type of jigs

Hello Steve

Do you know where I can get my hands on some of this older lures. I did see the Irons. The only one I got is the Henchman. I am trying to get my hand on all the others ones made. I did see another 70's brand call the Maverick.

Wow! Impressive tacklebox, SteveCool
The Halco Kimberley Casters were another great lure.

I myself have lots of irons also from those older days. Dating back from the 1950s to some up to date models. I also have large collection of inlay whale bone jigs from Japan. I never expected this type of irons would have made it to Australia.
