Re: Boat seat

Any chance of a pic of it? Email is ahills@rspcansw.org.au . I am chasing one that will fit in the deck holes for a small Stacer/Quintex hornet/explorer/basselite hulls (1 was stolen one a while ago). If it's what I am after I will grab it.

Re: Unknown New England lure.

Thanks Craig, it is frustrating. I was expecting that it would be pretty easy to ID with that scale pattern, something that someone would of jumped on with "yep thats a such and such" :lol: The Bib and timeframe kinda narrows things down a bit as well. Hopefully something comes back from Jamie as I ...

Unknown New England lure.

I have picked up this lure in the hope of identifying it, which I am confident is a New England maker as it was picked up in that area approx 19 years ago and has many of the area traits. I thought it may of been a RMG at first due to the fact it was picked up at the same time a bunch of his were al...

Re: Gem of the Mary River

G'day Craig, The rivers of the east coast hold some wonders dont they. Here is a close cousin of the Mary cod, it is a Richmond river cod caught last Sunday in the Yak. As you said, best to get in the water with it. Once they are landed they will stay quiet if cradled under the body and a quick lift...

Yes, and if they did I wish that I was able to buy them when they are first released not years later. I heard of a person the other day that has 10 sets of the Deception shrimp boxes and paid $85 each for them. His wife thought he was mad when he got them. :mrgreen:

Re: 12 inch Scorpion

Very nice and a great way to display the lure and history. Whilst the Kadaitcha's are nice I think the Scorpion's rate right up beside them as well. Here is a similar sized one that is coming my way this week. A painted one with twisted wire hangers http://fishnet.com.au/content/fishnet/images/galle...

Newell Kadaitcha collectors box

Thought I would post up this lure. Picked it up not long ago after seeing it on a work trip in the Hunter Valley and fell in love with it. Only 70 odd were made of the intended 200, this one is number 10. The lure has both the classic Newell sig as well as his checkbook style signiture and bother th...

Re: Twisted leaders

Note that it can only be used when the double line has a complete loop. If the double has been cut to remove a previous Cat's Paw, use an Improved clinch knot. Going by this, and assuming you used the loop end of the leader to join to the main line it wont work. The knotted dog is a great abraison ...

Nice lures, I have yet to pickup/target Jamie's lures. So many makers :roll:

Am I right in seeing that the Salty Mystique has a screw in tow point as well as one in the bib? Is this intentional and if so how much does it change the lure action/depth?
