Was wondering if any one here has seen this design bib in the Taylor Made's before. The Talyor Fizzer I got while working as a fishing guide at Barra Base in the mid to late 90's. Have never seen to many of them

Wonder if someone's bent those bibs on purpose to make them swim shallower?

The surface lure looks like a Koolabung Lure

Pretty sure they are all original Taylor Mades . A person who worked at Barra Base had a dad who was mates with Taylor . Lived in the same town . Port Macquarie I think. We use to get a few to play with from time to time . Bibs were bent when they arrived . They would be close to 23 years old now.

What's the evolutionary timescale of the taylor made eye styles? I've noticed a lot of the stick on style ones on recent Taylors, while all my old ones (circa 2003 is my last one that I bought) appear to have painted eyes. Any idea of the transition dates or does he still do both eye styles? If not it may help in dating them.

Cheers,

Danny.

Wazza, I believe what you're sayin but still think you are wrong mate, that is a Koolie, no doubt in my mind.

There might be more to this than meets the eye ?? Maybe style copied off a Koolie ? 
How long have Taylors been makin, anyone know ?

There's a post somewhere that says Taylor Made and Koolabung are brothers-in-law both from Port Macquarrie
