THE ART OF ROBERT MICHAEL GADEN The Poltergeist

Post by ocd1688 » Thu Dec 25, 2014 8:29 am

A much younger, probably fitter too Rob Gaden, was featured in an episode of " A Current Affair" in national television.
That was in 1997. Have a look at the video. It is in the RMG section. The Polty was featured in this video.

So 17 years ago, due to the power of television I went out and bought a few as you do.
And caught nothing as you do lol lol lol .

The first ever timber RMG I bought was a Polty as well.
Will post that up when I find it.

Now it is time to do some home duties.
So to our wide audience, please be patient.
Enjoy the video instead and take note of the lures hanging in the background of Rob's workshop.

And here it is

It was in the open market and I was very happy to get it.
My first timber RMG lure yay yay yay

I put bicycle valve tube on the hooks and put him in a foam box.
There it stayed in his lonesome for a considerable period of time.
I think I put him up in the Seeker thread Return of the three Musketeers.

This lure, and others that were on the open market at the time, created a big storm in the lure collecting community. Innuendos and the backroom boys, as Vince called them, were very active.
Something about a supposedly mythical being named Rowdythelureman.

The Polty is still in his box. You know what poltergeist do. They create chaos.

This the oldest Polty I have.
May be it is the oldest. ???

All the angles in the profile is one of the attraction for me for this very successful RMG model.

There is a period that the Polty was moulded and have RMG imprint on the lures before they became Halco Polties.

Shall post some pics later.
