Re: The Graeme

Wow, thanks Debbie!
I should have thought of that but my own Graeme reels have long been separated from their paperwork.

No mention of the No.5 or No.6 pattern?

Please know that an uploaded photo or scan of the brochure would be greatly appreciated!
...if you feel so inclined.

Thanks again.
Cheers

Werner Kossman's "Action" Spinner

Just picked up another one of Werner Kossman's rock-and-surf spinners for the "Aussie Metal" collection: The W.K. Action 1.5oz <click to enlarge> WK_Action.jpg Thought it might be worth getting all my WK posts together in one place, since there is no WK forum per se. Previous thread on Arrow and Bri...

Re: The Graeme

Just found another one of these spinners, slightly different pattern, and marked "4". <click to enlarge> Graeme_4.jpg Maybe its 4 ounces? S'pose I should weigh it..... Pretty sure the previous one isn't 5 ounces though. Might be 'model' number. Anyone know something about these iconic examples of Au...

New Barra Trooper Lures

Just picked up a couple of new colours from the current commercial crop. Thought they might be of interest. <Click to enlarge> BarraTrooper_DavidLovegrove.jpg No more signed bellies unfortunately, just the sticker under the bib. This pair is going in the display cabinet, but sooner or later some of ...

Barra:- Land-based Meterie

Time for my annual flyrodding post in this forum... Bagged a couple of nice barramundi on the 9-weight the other day, including my best land-based barra so far: {click on photo to enlarge} Barra_RossRiver_105cm_1.jpg Tossed the details up on the web here for the interest of those so-inclined. Haven'...

Red Eye Lures

Tossing this pic of a few red-eyed lures in the collection that remain unnamed (probably just my ignorance!). Any suggestions gratefully received. <click to enlarge> RedeyeTimbers_LHS.jpg RedeyeTimbers_top.jpg The middle two have tail-hooks only, no belly eyelets. Top one may be a home-made or back-...

Promotional Nautilus? MGM Players Club

Picked this large timber promotional lure out of the basket at the local Cashies the other day, marvelous pearlescent finish with text in gold glitter! Never been wet. To my eye its got Chris Hurt written all over it (figuratively speaking, unfortunately!) and this thread can be moved there followin...

Murakami Whale-Bone Jigs

Picked these delightful examples off the web some time ago. Seller advertised them as "wood" and priced them low but I knew right away they were whale-bone. <click to enlarge> Murakami_1.jpg Murakami_2.jpg Murakami_4.jpg Regardless of your stance on Japanese whaling in the Southern Ocean, you will b...

The Graeme

Most collectors of lures on these forums will probably have a token fishing reel collection tucked away (some not so token!!) and will be familiar with the vintage Aussie brand-name "The Graeme". The Graeme reels were initially developed by Ken Bennett post-WWII for high-speed rock and surf spinning...

Recent Obsession:- Bass on Fly

Bit accidental really, but "discovered" bass on the flyrod recently while traveling in NSW and Sth Qld over the Christmas break. I'm envious of you blokes who have them on your doorstep, catching my next one will involve a long drive or emptying the frequent flyer pool! First one was around 25cm in ...
