Dave,
I don't know if the other 2 are actually 'Somerset' lures unless Ian changed his shapes from time to time.
Here are a Somerset and Lil Somerset from my collection.

It's quite possible that they are different models though.

Dave, if they were from the same guy as the Bugge & Coolmunda, then he was refering to them as part of his 'Somerset' collection. He couldn't remember who actually made them. I sent him a message after the last sales re makers name.

Dave, those two with Calliope underneath would be great barra lures, are they timber? What's Calliope mean?
Forgive my ignorance, is it a dam in NSW? If yes, pretty shallow looking style for a dam?
No good for dams Dave, better send em up to me. lol

Tony:
Town and River in Sth Qld, no big dam AFAIK, but Awoonga Dam not far to the south.
Have heard something about proposed Castle Hope Dam, maybe that would be in the vicinity too. Anybody?

@ the 2 Tones and Dave,
Calliope is a town about 1 km west of the Bruce Highway on the Dawson Hwy at the middle inroads to Gladstone. The Calliope River forms the northern boundary to Gladstone as it enters Gladstone Harbour. The Gladstone Power station sucks water from a diversion off Auckland Creek which cuts through Gladstone and discharges the warm water into the Calliope River. Many a Barra is caught in the vicinity of this 'HOT WATER OUTLET' It was quite the 'HOTSPOT' for Brissie based barra anglers, before the barra in dams became fashionable.
Calliope is also the gateway to the back of Awonga Dam.

PS and its more CENTRAL QLD than southern Qld, the middlers get touchy over that.lol
