Hi Guys,
Here is my collection of Marz Lures, with thanks to Bob of B.O.B lures and the bunch he put up on the 'bay' which I won.

The interesting thing about Marz Lures or any other cottage industry lure maker is the transition stages. e.g. when did marz lures go from smooth to groove, dolls eyes like the censored eyes indicate early production lures followed by the rattle eyes and then the use of 3D holographic eyes. If you are lucky enough to have a very early Marz Lure with feint grooves it could be one of the first grooved lures before Maurie got his machine up and running where he used to hand file grooves around the lures. If I had my bible in front of me could tell you more but alas some of us have to work. I do know that the second third of fish I have caught have been on Marz Lures so they do work. The last third have been on any old thing including some of my own.I

Any Marz lures that are smooth are very early lures. They will either have painted eyes or dolls eyes complete with eyelashes. Maurie then started to experiment by hand filing grooves around the lures before he had his copying machine cusutom made. I have caught a fair few fish on his lures and undeniably have to say "they do work" very well. Fave color for the local river is the Pee Wee in flouro pink with horizontal black stripes every other variation doesn't seem to work like vertical black stripes or black scales. I've had Maurie touch up the paint job on more than a few occasions on this lure. Another one that works well is the Timberjack in most colors.

Yeah Dave that's them. They still have the grooves but the doll's eyes indicate these would have been the first lures produced on Marzys machine. The dates seem right without checking my bible at home. I have some photo's of part of my Marz LUres Collection.

The first and second pics are Split Rock Specials #12 & #30. The third pic is the #12 Split Rock Special, Cod Beetle, Stubby Grub, Wood Grub and Beetle (all good cod lures). The fourth pic from left to right & topto bottom: Shag, Voo Doo, Wasp, Bass Hunter, Dingo, Jimmie, Timberjack, Frog, Pee Wee, Nipper, Wee M, Gudgeon, Kiwi, Tim, Cicada. The fifth pic is my Bleeding Bait collection from left to right & top to bottom: #30 Split Rock Special, Sea Wiza, Lake MQ Special, Wood Grub, Jew Hunter, Mandrake, Hocus Pocus, Jew 1000, Bass Hunter, Bot Fly, Glenbawn, Horny, Dingo, Voo Doo, Frog, Poddy, Copper Head. There are more to come when I find wherever it is I've stashed them. Also the bible will tell me approx. when each lure was concieved. I also have some pics of some very very early Marz Lures but I think I would need Mauries permission first so I 'll see what I can do.
