Some nice stuff there Steve. Love the Darts, and on cards mmmmmmmmm yummy stuff them.
Mostly southern stuff, but a couple of nice Qld lures, Dave Killalea's 3 inch Barra Bait, ranges from 70mm to 90mm long. Depending on how hot it was in Townsville. It's a rare color aswell, nice.
The other nice one is the JaySea Baker Kray, designed by Warren Nicholson and molded by Alan Dolan. The name Baker comes from Keith Baker, who made a wide variety of amazing lures. Most of which were to complex or such a fine piece of art that they could be reproduced for the cost. Warren did make the Baker Kray out of timber for a short time, and they were about half the size of yours.
The one second top left looks a bit like a Dempster, fine stainless steel wire hangers is his trademark.

Steve,I'll start with the left hand column.Top lure looks like one of Brett Campbells,not sure of the next 2,4th is a Newell Ploppy,5th and 6th are timber RMG's,Battle axe and Rellik Doc Barra.At the top of the right hand column looks like another of Brett's lures,not sure on the popper might be an East Coast lure made by Mick Munns,3rd is a Barra Bait by Dave Killalea,4th looks like a Jaysea Baker Cray,5th is a Bennet McGrath,6th is a small Whitty's Dee-Bob and last is a Bennet/Craftmaster Merlin.
Those old lures of Trevors on the cards are awesome.Nice collection all round.
If you want to get rid of those RMG's, send me a PM.
Cheers'
Goodoo.

Good work, guys ....

Anyone know the third down on the left?

From memory, they were called "Benda" lures, made by Bob Simpson on Bribie Island.

He also made some great, small, bream lures. I'll post a pic of an old favourite when I get back in the office - it's nearly chewed to death. He made them around 15 years ago.

Cheers,

I am putting my money on the popper being a Majik lure by Brad May.

Almost stole the red Teneterfield but someone put Steve Morgan's name on the bib :twisted:

Might change my name for a chance at that one!

Nice Tilsan, maybe one of the most underrated collectibles getting around, my pick for an investment lure.
Min Min should should see some drooling on their keyboards.
Do you think some might have caught fish ?
Very nice Steve.

I don't know about catching fish, we all know Steve's not that good an angler :lol:

Wait till I get into his home collection!

And I agree about the shallow Tilsans - beautiful lures that caught way too many fish for people to collect them seriously.

No idea at all. 10-15 years old at a guess.
