  These are called Peg Lures and were made by Tom Hooper in Gordanvale just south of Cairns.Tom was an early innovative luremaker and although not pretty they were very well regarded in their day.
His bibs were mainly copper or brass and he only had access to 3563 bronzed mustad trebles.

Very interesting lures Barry. Clap

Thank you for posting them up, I've never heard about Tom's lures before.




I notice on one of the labels it says 1960, is that when Tom was making them?
Cheers, Tony

For the love of Fishing Lures.

Tony, Perhaps this could be moved to the Peg Lures section.
I reckon Barry would be happy to see his lost post once again.
