@Tyenna Dave

Nice selection of 'trouty' Hueys there and that one on the left fitted into your collection nicely!!

I've never seen his 'fishcake' style lures and I was thinking of bringing some original fishcakes down to do some historical Lake Pedder fishing and seeing whether I can hook a big trout on one like they did in the 1960's . . . a 50th anniversary of Lake Pedder surface fishing. Never know??

Those big fish customs are a nice piece of work. Are Huey lures being made solely in plastic now or are the wooden lures still being made as well?

Hey MXB !
Yes that lure fits in rather well , Many thanx !
A bit of Pedder fish caking might be good fun with some traditional fish cakes .
No much chance of a fish over 5lb now .Too many fish in the lake and not as much food as when it was gradually flooded many yaers ago .
Carl is still making huon pine lures and some new style smaller plastic lures aswell .
Check out his catalogues on Fishtas again as they have been updated .

Nice lures you have there, The little Vibe lure in the middle do you know how old that is ?

That style of lure is going through another fad in every type of Bass and Bream comp at the moment. thumbsupsmilie

Nice collection of lures there !
The vibe is a new one Carl donated about 6 months ago .
It is a little heavy for summer river flows but works well in the high fast water .
I have not tried it in the deeper holes in the Derwent for the bream as yet .
Could work well in the right situation ,

Dave,
Picked-up a lure very similar to those fish-cakes, when I was working at Bells Bay on the Tamar in 1993.
We were installing a satellite Seatel unit for Santos, while staying at the Pier Hotel in Georgetown, I visited a local tackle shop and purchased one.
Timber, like the ones in your pic, found out later the makers name is Leon Cubitt from the collectors on here.
Bullrout Dave has a couple, I think he's shown them, do you know anything about Leon? The tackle shop owner didn't know the maker at the time.
They are painted almost like these Hueys lures, must be a local connection you'd think.
Regards, Tony (Wulagi, NT).

Hey Tony .
I have actually never heard of Leon Cubitt .
Can run his name past Carl (Huey's) if you like ?
Could be someone he knows being as Carl is from the same area .

The Leon Cubitt 'fishcake style' lures have a more tapered body thinning slightly towards the rear. They have the props that look very similar to the original Helins versions . . . I know nothing about where he comes from except that he was from Tasmania? Not sure that they are still made?
