Fysshe Lures Frogge

Post by Schultzy » Sun Nov 22, 2009 5:08 pm

Saw mention of two legged lures elsewhere and someone mentioned an old Frog lure made in SE QLD.

The lure in question was from Fysshe Lures and was called a "Frogge", no that's not a typo. Along with his brand name some of his lures were named using Ye Olde English spelling.

Here is a photo of the original Frogge (pronounced frog) and a Lil' Frogge, on the left.

Ben,

Caught plenty of bass and golden perch on them. They had a very good hookup rate on goldens.

Action was nothing exceptional but they had novelty value! clapclap

These would presumably the originals that the Nabems were based on?

Different looking lure, are they weighted in the body as well - looks like a lump on the underside shot.

Thanks for digging them out and posting.

By the way Schultzy whats the story on the hooked up photo in your signature - fish and outfit?

Simon, looks like Neils fav Whiting outfit, Wilson M10 2.4mt, Shakespeare President 4500, and looks like he is well and truly hooked into a winter whiting by the curve in that rod....








NAH just kidding, more n likely a nasty Northern Blue has a hankering for the beacon out of shot, and he is trying to stop him, bit of a job though, Neil weighs about 85kegs wringing wet... thats why he is tucking the feet into the gunwhales lol

Simon,

These may very well have been the lure that spawned the Nabem. Fysshe's Frogges have been around for over twenty years. (Although I reckon the Nabem is a better looking lure).

They don't have a body weight. The bump is the head of a large brass pin that Fysshe put in some of his models as extra insurance against bibs pulling out.

Simon,

That is a favourite shot of my tinny's multi function game chair, cleverly disguised as a 110 lt esky.

It was snapped off the coast of Bundaberg one afternoon when the missus and I went out to get a Spaniard. Got sidetracked by a pod of rather large longtail tuna. The one I'm attached to in the photo went over 20kg.

The rod is an Ugly Stik BWS2201, 7' two piece 6-10kg & the reel is an old Pflueger Contender.

Eight five kilos????????????? Not even with my pockets full of lead slugs! NONO
73kg for the past ten years.



I did tip the scales at 125kg once.

But I was giving my missus a piggy back ride at the time. lol
