One off Arafura

Post by aussiebasser » Fri Aug 20, 2010 9:04 pm

This is one that Alan made for himself to fish the Peter Faust Comp in 2003. I can't remember why he gave it to me, but he came through the trees just as I netted a 107 which I caught on a Gold Bleeding Mullet of his. I was fishing on my own that morning and I think he heard me whooping through the trees.
Notice the big barbless Owners and double split rings on the front hook to give them more articulation. With hooks this big it's better to leave the middle one off. The glitter is of the ladies make-up variety.

It's a 130mm, he also does a 110mm. Great barra lure, but they take a bit of getting used to when you cast. They lay on their back in the air and veer off to the right. Being upside down, it is possible to skip them in under branches though.
