Carl at work

Post by Marrakai » Thu Jun 17, 2010 5:34 pm

This photo of a much younger 'grey nomad' accompanied an article on C-Lures penned by McSea for the April 1986 issue of Modern Fishing magazine.

I have tossed it up in response to Mully's request for pics of Aussie makers at their bench, during the heyday.

The whole article can be read by enlarging these pics, below (I hope!):

Hope you don't mind, Carl: we live for this stuff! Image

Thanks Marrakai, great read, I feel fortunate to have a few of Carls, a few mint and a few battered ones from plenty of barra.
