Barra King

Post by Tagged » Mon Jul 20, 2009 8:49 pm

The Barra King was made by R and M Dau in Mossman, FNQ. The card is the sale card and is worth more than a mint condition Barra King. On the back of the card it tells how you could be the winner of 6 Barra King lures just by catching a fish on these great lures. These came in three sizes and came with a sticker or signed by the maker.

These are a personal favorite. Not hard to come by for those starting out as a collector and reasonably priced too.
