g"day Mully, those lures wernt at any stage called "Lively Lures" were they?
I say this because I have a lure that looks identical in colour and shape to that little pink and green one you pictured, but underneath the stamp says "lively lures".
Cheers thumbsupsmilie

These are the only 3 styles Lawsy made that I'm aware of which doesn't mean it's fact.
These are all 15+ yrs old with the exception of the Lawsy Lures Rippa {pink}.
The top lure is a special order colour with a long story. And yes some did go to shops {that's the story}

Nah i dont think they were plus the eye placement on the whiplash and lively are different the whiplash have them on top and the lively on the sides more,,had a look at the livelys and can see the similarity only slight differences can be noticed...

I sent an email to Paul from swagman lures to ask if they had any connections to lively lures so I await some background info hopefully...
Ill post up my findings.

thats the link to the old site but it doesn't have anything to say about any connections to lively lures that I can find.....

Regardless I have tried to contact the owner regarding this very question Im also very interested to hear what he has to say...

G"day Mully thumbsupsmilie
When I saw that lure of yours, i thought yeah i"ve got one of them, on close inspection I saw mine was a Lively, and not a swaggy, same as yours.
Either the two companies copied each other or they at some stage were made by the same mob.
I am pleased to hear this particular lure works well, as I think I have only used mine once, and cant wait to try it out more now thumbsupsmilie
I have some pics showing your lure and mine for comparison.

Here is yours




And now mine


Underneath it says "lively Lures' stamped the same style


Very similar if not the same thumbsupsmilie

I don't know censored all about Lively Lures but I do know the Whiplash was released in either 1994 or 1995 if that helps with "WHO came 1st" nahnah crazysmilie

Lawsy designed it predominantly for the Trout market at the time. thumbsupsmilie
