Handcrafted Topwater Lures

Post by Fizza » Sun Jun 01, 2008 4:55 pm

These lures were handcrafted by Bobby Pritchett USA.

Every step of the process is done by hand by Bobby with only the very best of hardware components being used including glass eyes.

All Bobby's lures are Signed, Dated & Numbered according to how many of a particular model are made.

Not many of these lures are seen with quite a number going to Japanese Tournament anglers.

Bobby does a Life-Like series also with some lures having cracked the USD$100 mark when being sold at auction.

I'll post a few of them up when i get a chance along with some others.

Here's some of his Life-Like series

Image

1st lure represents a Tiger Musky

Image

This 2nd lure is a Spawning Buck Rainbow Trout

Image

3rd is Northern Pike & a dud. Unfinished lure & the only one I have two of.

Image

Bobby forgot to wack the belly weight in & realised he'd packed the wrong one. He subsequently sent me a finished lure although I kinda like this one.

Your dead right HR, I'd hate to have to unhook anything especially myself. lol skky cccc nope -duh

The finish on those lures posted by zipman is amazing, one looks like a saratoga scale pattern.
