7" Bibless Leads

Post by fishaholiclures » Mon May 11, 2009 9:41 pm

Hi guys,
Got this last week, thought I'd post up a pic. 7" Bibless Leads in colour 3 (dorado??) huge bugger and has a sizable lump of lead for a head under the paint.

...and THIS is what they look like when they've been swum for a while!

Sorry Brad, couldn't resist! They were a marvellous lure though, that's for sure. Are they still made?
I ended up building my own, most of which were murdered by big GTs on the reef between Orpheus and Fantome!

That lure has been smashed, a lot.

Says a lot for the build that it's stood up to the abuse.

Marrakai,
funny thing about "GOOD" lures, they catch fish till they fall apart don't they....

As far as I can gather, Terry doesn't make lures anymore, but is working at a Tackle shop near Cairns.

Cheers Brad

If your talking about the Leads Lures Terry :P then he is still making lures and doesnt work at any tackle stores. He still supplies to the local ones though (and a few around the country).

Sounds like you have up to date info clapclap
Last I heard he was working at Bransfords (part time??) and was taking a break from making, but that info is probably a year or so old.

And thank God for the fact he is still making lures bowsmilie .

Now if only I could find a way to get my hands on about 100 of them at once -hmmthink wwnk

My only 7" is smashed to bits and is about 12 years old and bought from Compleat Angler in Ringwood, Victoria. I'd reckon not too many have gone south over recent years (which is great seeing how I live in Qld now!)
