JP Deep Driver Timber Lure.

Post by Alistair » Thu Aug 20, 2009 5:09 pm

Picked this up yesterday from Paul Kneller. It was made for him by Joe Priest in the early 90's and hand written with a few personal messages to him. (It is also smaller than the plastic version but Paul said Joe took Pauls "size" should we say, into account for him :lol: Even has Joe's name and number on it. I will be keeping this in the collection with the Walkers Beach comp hat I received the year the sad events happened.

As far as novelty lures go the Deep Driver's gotta be hard to beat :shock: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Are you aware if there are any other timber versions that Joe made Al?

If you mean timber ones of this lure then yes, only a few though according to Paul. I know 1 is with/was with Frank Prokof? . Very rare though and obviously this is a one off for Paul :lol:

I actually found out alot more of the story behind the incident between JP and Knols which I will go over with you some time. (Will leave it for another all nighter at Monduran to fill in time waiting for moon above :P ) I always knew it was an argument about a lure making partnership but it appears to be over this model lure.

Yep chatting while waiting for the bite to come on is probably less intrusive on the fish than watching fishing DVD's in the boat on the laptop :lol: :lol: :lol:

Was very tempted to make a joke about you having Pauls measure, but I won't! :P
Cheers,
Tony

Shrinkage mate. His wife started lookin at it with a twinkle in her eye remembering the man he once was :lol: :lol:

I think it is because he does not collect lures at all. I wondered the same thing but as he said, when you make lures full time there everywhere, in the shed, on the table, in the car and always underfoot. collecting them is the last thing on the mind. I know this was a special one given to him but he felt it would be appreciated more with a collector than himself. He gets a buzz out of people keeping his lures (and others) in mint condition for the future.

Also why he sold this one, A Brett Campbell lure that he repainted in his colours. I dont know if it is worth $$$ or nothing but it is the type of lure that grabs my fancy, a combination of 2 great lure makers.
