I have always had a thing for black lures since I started collecting.

Just wondering if people know who made this beautiful lure?

Yes, it is a Dempster...late 80's. I call these guys 'fat boys' because of the wide body. These are not as common as his normal minnows.

It has had some work done on it. Shouldn't be too hard to guess who painted it.

This fellow (the restorer) has restored before...this is not his first time.

Nice work Gary Clap

Fat-boys sounds the right name for this style Dempster steiny - the bigger ones in this style are a fair chunk of lure!


Cheers, Tony

For the love of Fishing Lures.
