Garra Lures.

During my time over Tenterfield I also ducked up to Wallangarra and caught Terry Marshall at home. My desire with lure collecting is to meet the makers myself which makes thee lures more interesting to me. There seems to be a common theme with many of these guys. Shed out the back with draws, benches and rafters covered in lure blanks in various stages of completion. :lol: They all are more than happy to have a chat to a stranger and tell them about their lures (and they all have a right to be proud of them too!)

Terry was no different and I enjoyed catching up with him. I will be back again with an order now I know what he has in way of models (alot more than I thought :shock: ) but picked these few up whilst there. The top and bottom ones are old models that he has not made for many years and were in the shed. Could not pass that opportunity up when he offered the big fella to me as a gift :mrgreen:

Whilst Terry come from QLD he is only a stones throw (literally) from the border and has a New England Style much more than what I would describe a QLD type lure to be (And it fits into my collection as well :lol: )

They have changed alot over the years , in both shape and finish quality. I was looking at some of his old ones hanging up and have seen a few that were bought many years ago for $5 from an icecream container in the local bowling club. On thing I am told about them, they have always been fish catchers.
Next trip up there will be to get some cod and yella belly lures for fishing Pindari and Glenlyon for the coming season. Whilst I will be getting a collection set of Terry I think most of his lures I get will be swum :mrgreen:

That colour scheme you have has to be a good fish catcher colour. Where did you pick yours up in the blister packs?

The Peeli's will be some of the "for fishing" lures I pick up. God knows that if I ever get a Kadaitcha it will not be swum so these similar style lures will be the next best thing. The Mitto's 1000 and also Gidgee Lures make similar ones as well.
Might have to see if he has any of those blister packs or if Fitzy packages them himself.
