Humpty Lures are a fantastic cod and golden lure and the Dumpy was the tiniest of the lures. I've actually got about 30 sitting around in my box still being used as they catch fish - unfortunately all the big ones are gone! Never even thought to collect them. Oh well I am sure Frank will get into me about that!

Paul was a great bloke, sold plenty of his lures through Compleat Angler in Melbourne and we even got to visit him one day out in the middle of nowhere in Vic. His local testing ground was a great fishery! Not sure if you were actually allowed to fish it or not.

He did plenty of custom colours for various shops and locals, even did some for us while we were there. I would love to talk to anyone who has a red and black one for swap, remembering I only have the middle and small sizes left.

Cheers

What surprises my Boothy, is that you actually got out for a fish!! howdy howdy nahnah nahnah

I know for certain that they would be lost on snags - you are a great player of timber fish!! assy assy assy

And maybe you've found guys to fish with that know to keep the tackle box LOCKED - in my experience you were always good at the 'conservation of nature' approach to fishing - lose one, borrow one!!! pokeystix pokeystix pokeystix

PS They are very nice lures!! thumbsupsmilie thumbsupsmilie

After spending an inordinate amount of time reading through old FWF whilst on holidays (time well spent I may add)
here's what I ended up with for Paul Nicel.

Humpty Lures (Paul Nicel) mm Released
Humpty Small 42 1994
Dumpy 1992
Pimple 30 1996
Humpty Large 70 1994
Ck'n Big 1996

any help filing in blanks appreciated

That's a pretty good list and here I could be way wrong but I thought the Dumpy was the smallest twin hook lure - the Pimple was tiny and for trout with a single hook. I'll have to go and look through my trout stuff (now that's old!) and see if I still have one. One of my best mate's biggest cod is still on a Ck'n Big in that magic blue colour on this post. That fish was only 118cm long and fat! I loved the Humpty Lures and Frank is kinda right that a few still live on snags (or in someone's box when they found them!) up above Mulwala. I was real good at snagging when I used to fish!
Gotta remember to put some away when I buy new lures and not use them!

Cheers
