G'day Sticko,

That's certainly a nice lure to have in your collection by the sound of it, nice find! Thumbs Up


Cheers, Tony

For the love of Fishing Lures.

Sticko, is this signed under the bib? Reason I ask is, I have an unknown that may or maynot be a timber Reidy's, but is unsigned, similar to yours. What do you think? Yellow and Blue one.Regards, Tony.

The blue and white lure looks a lot like a Henry Hall barra king. The bib shape is a match. The bib looks to have an extra thick coating of paint over it (thicker than normal). Maybe it has been resprayed?

Thanks guys, still an unknown with quite a few others I have. No not a BarraKing, Bruce Moller dropped around for a beer and a chat last Sunday, he was interested in the blue/yellow one, says he may take up where his pop left off. Interesting discussion, ever heard of an articulated Moller, Barry? Shocked
Regards, Tony.

Something about the eyes on the blue/white one and the paint pattern. Not made on a copy-lathe however.
If someone knows Jeff, would they show him this photo? The bib shape isn't right though, remains an unknown, but would love to know who made.
Regards, Tony.

Tony the articulated Lure could very well be a very early Moller.His early ones when Vic first met him were made in 2 halves apparently.I have never seen a jointed one before,so thankyou for posting it up.
As far as I know Jeff Reid is not on the net so getting pics for him to look at is difficult.Regards Barry

Thanks Barry, the more I look at this lure, the more I think it's an Elliot.

Sorry about dragging up an oldy, trying to find info on Reidys - But Tony that Blue and Yellow with the scale is a Got Get Em.
