I went crazy and bought twice the value of lures that I bought last year and it seems I did not get a lot of lures for my money. But this year I bought some quality lures that I will treasure in the future as most that I buy I do not fish with, I simply collect them. But in saying that I did buy a few lures to use when I go Cod Fishing on the Queensland/New South Wales border later this year.
I took the time this year to attend some lure making workshops, and I was amazed at the Airbrushing Techniques of Brian Power from Power Lures. The finish he achieves on his lures are awesome.
Check out what I purchased below, they are mostly hand carved timber lures and as I said most will be added to my non fishing lure collection.
