Hey Tony, your Aussie lure collection must be HUGE by now :)

I still have those yanky oldies lures you gave me mate. All hanging off a driftwood in my mancave :) love them all. Quite a conversation piece when non-fisher folk come over.

Looking forward to catching up at the lure expo Tony...hope you can make it too.

So the man knows how to get an even going eh ? Should be good  :youbeauty

Cant believe how many Lure Lover (ers) blatently saying there going sink and all!

Steve

 :youbeauty Good isn't it, This is about Australian Lures after all. The Cottage industry in this country has provided fishermen with some great Lures through the years and many of the larger makers did the hard yards from their back shed or garage to where they are today.

From the interest shown over at LureLovers.com it's looking like this could end up being bigger than Ben Hur Fitzy.  :D

Awesome idea, and I look forward to the event. Give me a shout if I can be of any assistance.

Cheers
Tony

There will be a webpage ready in the next week with details/info.  :tick

Mate the thing you saw was just my blog under my profile. We've all got them on our profile. I'd put something there asking not to send PM for general questions as I was getting scores of them every day wanting info like gps marks to a certain spot or the Omega 3 content of tilapia.

Happy to get PMs with genuinely personal type questions.



In regard to the Lure Expo, enquiries can be emailed to info@sweetwaterfishing.com.au or call me 0423 464 311

Cheers,

fitz..

Fishing Monthly Group are moving outside & will be bringing their Marquee along. That frees up one of the internal sites... there's only a couple of these left so get in quick in you're interested.

Also, Fishing Monthly will be selling subscriptions at the Expo, the first 80 subscriptions get a limited edition Tom Barratt hand carved lure with their subs. I know of a couple of folks who reckon they're going to camp at the front door to get their limited edition lure.

er, better make that 79 cause I will be lining up as well.  :youbeauty
