Lee's Lures

Post by fishaholiclures » Wed Jun 30, 2010 4:17 pm

Hi guys n gals,
I have been trying to find a Lee's lure for ages and managed to snare one the other day.
Richard Lee used to make these from the mid 80's till about 10 years ago out of Townsville. He had several models including Minnows and Poppers.
This is a 95mm Cone Popper

Hope you like my collection, top four mint, rainbow one found in a tree over an Arnhemland billabong.
Bottom two scarred ones have caught their share of jacks and barra, Richard if you're reading this, the bottom left minnow with the black stripes is the best lure I've ever fished with, I'd like a mint one for my collection, hint, hint.

Richard, great to hear you're getting back in the game, any chance you could make a couple of Sardines with the original metal bib?
Would love for my collection, got lucky with two of those mint ones in the pic, especially the articulated green one.
Visited my brother in March, who now lives in Grafton after 25yrs. in Darwin, those two were hiding in his tackle box which I quickly relieved him of, he doesn't fish anymore since moving south, not the same he reckons. lol
