I have these lures which I think are Old Aeroplane Murray Cod spinners.
They must have been made during hard times, going by the materials used.
Can anyone shed some light on them pls?
Cheers

Both of those are known as Leghorns. The bits missing are the white chook feathers off the back of them. These were designed for people who didn't have fishing rods and fished them on a bit of green cord, thrown off the bank. The weight in the back of them made them easier to cast. The other model did not have the weighted jig on the back.

The old green cord, great stuff. yay
I would thing that there has been more of that used in the Darling than there will ever be Braid lol
More useful to the old fisherman in the West of NSW than tie-wire & baling twine was to the old Cockies. thumbsupsmilie

There was a time when you'd be hard pressed to find a tree in Mulwala that didn't have a roofing nail embedded in it for the tying of Green Cord too!
