Hey Dave,
Haven't heard alot of Rio lately, I know he was pretty censored off back when the chinese copies of his prawns appeared, but people soon found that the chinese version broke in 1/2 REAL easy and switched back to RIO'S. He put out a couple of lures with the same resin body in the middle of a clear RUBBER outer, one was a popper and the other a lil fishie shape that had a shallow style bib.

Worked properly, Rio's prawns are deadly on a range of species, including FINNUS MEGASAURUS which just gobble up the MONSTER version laurie has lol

Samurai or Craig might know more about Rio's status, as they live in the same area as him.

Brad
I know what I know, the rest is simply details

I was lucky enough to be fishing beside him one day in Noosa's lake Weyba, about, maybe ten years ago. He was trying the single hook version for the first time, it is meant to be a fly not a lure. He caught 8 flathead, I don't recall what I caught but it wasn't that good. He seemed nice enough but I've never seen him since. I use the 60mm version alot for Bass, I cast them just short of weed beds, let them sink and pull them out in short spurts.
