Ok...after damning Brolly for only allowing 1 lure (very nasty assy ) I have thought about MY SANTA LURE

An ORIGINAL MOLLER TIGER would do very nicely, for I feel that Eric's lures were THE one's that started the ball rolling on lure shapes for tropical species.

I know this will ruffle some southern feathers, but all the Cod/Perch shapes are derived from several different lures (Flopy, Flatfish, Smoo, Bagleys DB3) but the Moller/Heddon Tiger profile kicked off many makers who made lures in the northern 1/2 of Oz, who went on to make some variations to the shape but the underlying qualities remained.

Agree absolutely Brad,
However, I'm very fortunate to own two of Eric's originals, which I treasure, one in cedar and one in white beech.
So my choice is for a Powell Lure, after talking with Travers my Xmas wish will come true.
Merry Xmas All.

This is not easy but I'd be keen to get an original wooden Stumpie in mint condition that isn't going to send me bankrupt and I reckon I just might be a chane if I am super nice to Brolly and... Nah that won't work, he collects!

But a mint Stumpie would be very nice indeed.

Just back from catching that Christmas cod at Bundalong on a StumpJumper of all things and that was as good a pressie as anything.

Merry Xmas all - been a fun year.

Cheers

Very interesting responses to this thread, a real insight into whats in super demand among the hard core! The next timber stumpy to come up for sale will be in hot demand it seems! And who would guess Rob wanted a Deception?!! lol lol lol ??? One day you'll have to show us all your entire collection of Deceptions, I'm sure it's very very impressive! thumbsupsmilie

My choice, besides the stumpy's, boomers and scorpions is perhaps a little more modest but probably equally hard to get. It's a 110mm or 90mm frog pattern metal bibbed Hendry Seeker. So if one comes up no bidding y'hear!! smckin smckin smckin lol lol smckin

Rohan,
Robs Deception collection is NOT 'very very impressive' nope nope



ITS GOB SMACKIN, KNEE TREMBLIN, MAKE YOU BREAK OUT IN A SWEAT.. IMPRESSIVE
shockedsmilie
trouble is its so comprehensive he would have to lay them out on the driveway and take the pic from on top of the carport, then we would miss all the detail.....

Or I suppose he could overload the server with multitudes of single pics lol lol muhmuh

My request is only a small one.
A timber "Dinky Darwin Dart" any color.

All the best over the Chrissy season.
