Some more Mencho`s

Post by siegfried » Wed Sep 23, 2009 10:33 am

I spent a week at Glenbawn recently. Spent some time with some good mates & got to know some top blokes.
Darcy Menchin was one, a great bloke & great lure maker.
These are a few I managed to aquire from Darce, some are from his own tackle box & one of`s. Thanks mate.
There`s a lot of pics but I don`t think you`ll get sick of looking, I know I don`t.

Thanks for the privilege Darce.

I'm amazed at how many shapes a good lure maker can make swim, and the fact that no shape I but a bib on can swim.

Ziggy,
Bottom right lure in the 8th pic from the bottom, is that a luminous lure by any chance?

Ye Ziggy, I managed only the one mate.

A good mate of mine is an avid lure collector & his lovely wife started her own little collection a short time ago so being the big hearted bloke I am I gave it to my mate's wife.

That one you have pictured looks very much like it, :shock: :shock: :shock: are you sure it's yours :?: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Here's a couple more Goannas from Darcy

Biggest is 170mm whilst smallest is 100mm

I only have three Galapagus.

Top & Bottom were given to me by a good mate & the middle lure by another good mate.

The little sucker is 100mm long.

Chief, you know you could just be right about that one. It may have, purely by accident, found it`s way into the wrong area. :twisted: :twisted:

I`ll look into it & retify the problem if it`s true. :roll: :roll:

Just organizing the final details to hit the river with Fang tomorrow Ziggy so may not have many left for March. :shock: :shock: :shock:

You'd best hold onto yours for now if Team Manta are going to be victorious for the third time running. 8) 8) 8)

You may also feel inclined to buy a few more knowing how easilly I lose lures :lol: :lol: :lol:
