Crusty, re SS lures - watch this space or actually the Fish Head section on the forum............ or if you are going past stick your head in.  One word - stunning BUT extremely limited quantities!!!!!!! (and yes the one Duncan is keeping for himself is going in my private show case)

Cheers,

I fish them, Crusty, but the Fullscales have had priority in the recent past.

SS have a couple of models that are fantastic but also some rather mediocre ones. I don't know they manage to get some so right and others so wrong.
 
That said, the finish on them is amazing. As I wrote in the original post on thos thread, they are industry leading. Check out the first lure in the first photo of my original post. It's a Nemo in a mother of pearl type finish.

The good models are harder to get hold of than sea frogs!
If it swims; I want to catch it!

Hi Brock,

sent you a PM.

Will do a trip report in the next week when we get back on deck.  We are teaching 130 kids how to fish tomorrow so after the trip and then that it will take the week to recover.

Brandon,
Are those pictures that you have posted with your information "personal pictures" of your own collection?

Brandon are you sure this post isn't just an self-indulgent display of your enormous and enviable tackle collection?  In particular displaying lures that the average punter has no hope of ever acquiring, let-alone sacrificing to some dirty reef thug? :D  ::)

I also note that all the lures are in perfect condition, you must have buckets of dinged up retirees lying around as well!

Please accept my comments as humourous jealousy and nothing more  ;D

cheers,

I had to have a laugh at what you just wrote, Stephen, but I maintain the post is purely for information purposes. :D

The photo of the Pump Kings aren't of my lures - I simply thought that I'd add that to the post seeing I had just put that photo up for Brock and Pump King is worth a mention. The rest of them are mine, however. There realy is nothing that is unobtainable per se but some are extremely difficult to source. I do use them but the moment I commit a lure to use, I use it until it is lost or rendered beyond use but very few get to this stage because some GT has taken it as jewellery.

You're one of the few people here with access to tackle in Japan so it's not like you're an average punter!   :D
