Ron Gallo Lures

Post by TonyM » Sat Aug 15, 2009 11:32 pm

This is amongst my favourite lures, a very early Ron Gallo hand carved timber lure.

Here's a quote from Bransord Tackles website about Mr Gallo when he was inducted into Bransfords hall of fame in March 2007:
Ron Gallo is the North’s estuary expert. He was the owner of one of Cairns’ first tackle shops and his generosity as a retailer almost sent him broke. His lure-making skills are superb and he always has the time to help others, particularly youngsters. His achievements as a barra fisherman speak volumes and his knowledge of Lakefield is unrivalled.
And here is one of Mr Gallo's lures that I am proud to have in my collection
