Dave,
Don't know about Lenny, however I've seen a barra style lure with his name with a metal bib, always get beaten when they've come up.
I'll keep looking, yours are nicely painted, take it these are for bass/trout etc.

Hello, what do you need to know??? Lenny is my father,A mad keen Barra fisherman, who got sick of having to replace expensive lost lures in the mid 80's he started but has lost interest after illness, he handcrafted all his lures from Tasmanian Hewin pine, making various sizes colors and shapes adaptable for fresh water cod or salt water..with some amazing results....

Dad, Len Maples from Wangaratta, is a life time member of the Booraloola fishing club, in his 70's now, he used to experimented on all different sorts of shapes and sized lures...from small 2inch (bug jumpers) to 6-7 inch barra lures...various sized/shaped bibs for different dive action, even trialed a few with ball bearings inside for a rattle affect, he mainly made them for himself, but when people started to show interest, he made and sold them privatly,He still has a collection he uses for his own needs, but when health and marriage problems he lost interest and hasnt made a lure in almost 10 years, but they were very sucessful, with my then 16 years old brother Roy making front cover of fishing world magazine, August 93' with a 45bl barra caught in the daily river darwin on a blue lure of Dad's.
