Leads Lures

Qld's lure history starts in the estuaries, mostly cast than trolled. Made tough for tough fish, from pioneer Eric Moller to innovative Alan Dolan, check out Qld's history in lure making.

Is it signed by Terry ?
Looks like George Dempster's eyes.

Tagged, the wire on theChiefs lure looks a bit thick for a Dempster do you think? The body shape and scales looks a bit like the 3" or 4" Terror, although the ones I've seen have a flat bib, maybe a very early model?

Here's a pic of the Terror from the early 90's (I'd take a few at that price!)

The one below is called a 3" Original, would like to know the model name of the other one I posted if anyone knows.

There's several variations of the stickers under the bibs on these, not to mention the early handwritten ones (if you have any please send them to me as I need them) :P

Terry Leadbeater is still making several models (e.g. Shad, Mack, Hijacker) although in limited numbers and they are in high demand
