J.M.Gillies Adverts- 1963

Post by Marrakai » Tue Nov 24, 2009 10:33 pm

During the early to mid 1960s, lure fishing in Australia was given a 'shot in the arm' following lifting of import restrictions and the subsequent influx of European and American fishing tackle. In 1963, J.M.Gillies ran a series of classified ads in the Australian 'Outdoors' magazine, one each month, designed to promote awareness of the 'new' lures and related tackle distributed by that company. Here are four ads from the series to start with; should have a few more if I can dig out the correct issues of that marvellous old Aussie magazine:

June Issue, 1963.
