Illusion Lures A.D.D..jpg
The A.D.D. This lure was put into production with twist eyelet's to get an effective lure for Glenbawn on the shelf at around $10. I made around 600 between 2002 and 2010, most of which were sold through the Glenbawn Kiosk and Aberdeen Tackle supplies. There were only 6 of the original full wire version made

Cheers

Thank's Fella's,
Will be good to meet people at the Lure Expo, I'll have 25 lures available there. All the Lures I've sold over the last 15yrs and some new ones that are being added to the current range. There will also be a selection of old handcarved lures and other early stuff on display thumbsupsmilie

Cheers
Wal

Unfortunately we didn't pull this off for last year, though Sam and I did enjoy putting on a display at the Expo.
Due to ongoing health issues and family commitments, many of these old designs will not be put back into production again and the limited numbers of them started prior to last years Expo will be Given away as parts of limited Edition Anniversary sets at http://www.facebook.com/IllusionLures over the next 6mths

The start of 2013 marked the completion of 30yrs of timber luremaking and 15yrs as Illusion Lures crazysmilie

What a ride.. hopefully I'll be making designer woodchips for a while yet yay

Cheers
