Rob Gaden=RMG.....
He 'borrowed' design ideas from Peter Newell from Tenterfield(the originator of the Scorpion design) ....while he was ill

Gaden sold 'his' scorpion design's plus others to Halco in 1990's (I think)

Halco re-designed bib construction 1999-2000 (Bullet proof bib)

One of the best lure designs ever to come out of Australia....now sold in over 50 countries including Russia under the name of "Sorcerer"
