G'day Carl, thanks for the info. re dates of signing etc. Also the maker for MC lures, Mark Coffy in the other thread, now we know about Mark.
I've posted a pic of the following lure as an "Unknown" in the past, nobody here could enlighten me, wondering as I found it in with a few of yours, and the paint-job is identical on a C-lure in that bunch, hoping you may be able to ID for me. About 3" long, timber. Unusual shaped bib, apologies for my bad photography.

Hi Tony, taken me days to find this again, still tryin to work out how to drive all this stuff.
Made so many one offs without signatures years ago, have forgotten most of em and gave em all away, looks like one of my paint jobs and looks familiar, but without havin it in my hand i could'nt take the credit for making it.
Either way it looks like a nice little lure.
Regards Carl

Carl, sorry mate got that now 'Mal Coffy', he made great lures, hope he's still with us.
Thanks for the feed-back on this one-off, I'll mark it tentatively as one of yours, same high quality finish as the C-lures I acquired with it.
Whatever happened to Peter Fooks?, remember him from when I worked in Gove mid 80's, think he was a teacher there, before he moved to Cooktown.
He made his own little barra lure called it 'Quick Match', purchased two in sports store there,I caught heaps of creek barra on it and have kept another one in mint condition for my collection, bet there's not too many of them around now.

Hi Tony, yes Mal is still around, he's one of the Old blokes now.
From memory? Peter Fooks was in the printing game in Gove, don't remember his lures but his boat was called Quick Match,nice centre console,i did a respray job on it for him.
Last i heard he sold up and headed south.
How about posting his lure up, i might recognise it.
Cheers, Carl

came with printed card which I can't find right now.
