    Posted: 27 Jun 2019 at 3:51pm
Hey folks

I have a good number of scorpion shape lures from a bunch of different makers here, there and everywhere.
I'm not going to try to list those here - because I'll miss some or what not.  But the makers will know if I've bought them from them I guess.

I want more, though.
I'm looking for anyone who makes a few scorpion style lures to drop me a note.

Or even anyone who has stuff made by others that they'll part with.  Although I'm not really interested at "Collection" prices...
See how we go.

Sorry if I am late getting back to anyone.
I am just getting through the 000,000,000,000,000's of messages I have received.
That's right...  None.

Nobody else is knocking out scorps?  Damn.

I have one Woods Scorp which is a gem. I'd probably nab another. Turn up to a definite if it's another size.

It's worth the venture to make a few, learned tons about lure dynamics from the ones I made. Probably my favorite style lure besides the crays, extremely versatile little buggers.

Not sure how a true aussie scorp swims or looks like aside from pictures???

Here are a few

They are a great shape, as you say very versatile with different bib shapes and sizes covering a lot of applications... Hence my obsession I suppose.
I hope I'm not starting to collect them

For me they have one drawback, they cast very poorly. Sometimes its like holding up a paper plate in the wind. Other than that, these are the end all to be all. Newell really created something special with this shape.

I whittled my collection down, trees and rocks are unbiased lure collectors...

If only my time was spent training an otter to fetch?

I wasn't sure if you had one of mine or not...
I did make an extra large size one for a mate...I don't think he's game to use it.

Al they look good. Very interesting - like the eddy's stinger.
But I think for now I better stick to outright declared scorpion inspired stuff.
Otherwise this will get out of hand LOL

You can have this one if you wish. I think it was a Bebendorf blank that I used to try out a new paint scheme.

Ducks, it's a strange lure, very light timber and the bib seemed way too big!! But, after I painted it, I tested it in the tank and actually swam quite well... Had to tune the towpoint but it should catch fish. I'll send it down, got a bit of paint separation as I painted it way too quickly. Do you still have the same work address to send it to? Send me a message if otherwise... Cheers Ian...

Ian you're right. It's a weird one. Nice shape. Clean lines. Then the very long  slightly asymmetrical bib.
Smashing job on the resto work, too!
