Just digging out a few of my old tackle boxes and came across this box full of crank baits from the 1980s and older mostly. I was just curious about how much of this sort of thing made it over to Australia? Are ones like these common over there?

That could be any tackle box in southern Australia. Rebel, Bill Norman, Shakespeare, Storm, Rapala are/were common here. Large-Mouth Bass was and still is a huge influence on Australia (and other countries I imagine).

The old boy has a bit of a collection of storm lures, around 1000 all in box.
Lucinda Collector!
All ways on the hunt for more.

I would say pretty much all of those brand were out here in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s.

I thought that was likely the case.... thanks guys ! 
It’s always interesting to see similarities and differences 
In what different countries use for tackle.
