Any ideas?  Some defined lines around the red V and underside.  Just another unknown shed maker?

What you have there is a 4" Moller Chinminnow, run your finger along bib edge see if you can feel a notch?
Collectable, this may or may not have been painted by Eric, if not, maybe by son Westy or grandson (a friend of mine) Bruce. Definitely made by Eric, nice find.

I think early Peter Munt as I have seen those red lines on many of his moller styles.

Definitely no notch in bib.  And paint is quiet thin....underside can see timber lines, so if repaint been sanded back before done. Thanks for the replies.  Is an interesting one

Whipit, this lure was made by Eric Moller, whomever repainted it will remain a mystery. Eric never used sealer or primer, applied enamel paint directly over raw timber. That's why you can see the grain.
