A couple more NQ Timbers

Post by eyeconbarra » Mon Oct 24, 2011 11:39 pm

Thanks to all for the assistance so far, especially Richard for his help with the Lees lures. Not many to go but the following couple have me stumped good and proper.

The first two are in my novice opinion really well made and finished lures considering that from recollection they were manufactured at least 25 years ago. My father was given these two lures I think by a cabinetmaker in Townsville. The styles and finishes just look too good to be a backyard hobbymaker so hopefully someone has some ideas on the maker. Gave the red one a brief swim once but have never really had the courage to fish them. Both are 120mm overall including the bibs.

This little guy is also from Townsville I think. Has plenty of character not sure how else to describe it other than to say it is about 60 mm long, 70mm including the bib

Something about that small one, maybe a very early Norm Edwards? Hope someone can positively ID it for you. The two large, I have no idea, but maybe Richard is on the money. The only Laurie White I own is a smaller Dempster shaped minnow.
Regards, Tony.
