no name lures
« on: September 10, 2019, 08:39:05 am »
I'm sorting out heaps of tackle and have found these lures, they are unbranded, any ideas on who made them?
when I die, may my wife not sell my fishing tackle for what I told her I paid for it... and I have bought more, a severe case of TA

not sure about Manns, the Manns lures do not appear to have the same shape between the belly hook and the tail hook :dunno:

Definitely NOT a Manns stretcher.... as Mike said that lure was sold by Bennie under the Demon Tackle brand... made in China.... have a couple myself.... aliexpress is selling them @ U$1.21 (all sorts of different colors)

This is a Manns... note that there's no "hump" in the anal area

The bottom lure is definitely a polyester popper by Ratfink as Capt Hook said, & sold by Ganis.
I have a few I got years ago for a "penny".....but never used them, so also wonder how they perform ?
