Mencho`s lures

Post by siegfried » Mon Aug 03, 2009 2:19 pm

Darcy Menchin is in my opinion one of the top 3 lure makers in the Hunter Valley.
A top bloke to boot.
This is one of his styles called the "F`Nuck" named after the first knuckle of the index finger.

The sizes, the large one is around 120mm body.

Some larger ones

Image

Some reverse F`Nuck`s

Image

Two of the best paint jobs I think I`ve seen on lures.Works of art.

Very nice Ziggy I think you should send them down so I can get a better look.
Cheers,
Fang.

This won`t be for a while due to my hopefully temporary ban on lure buying. :roll: :roll: :evil: :x

As the Moderator I better ask what a Fnuck is before someone else asks me what it is.
