Found out a bit more about the Green Scorpion from Brett Campbell. It was 1 of 2 made. The other one is a Gold colour same pattern (would really like to know where that one is ). They were made by Peter as one of his last lures and as many would have noticed it has alot flatter head section. These were made as prototypes for the Kokoda Wildfire range and I am just guessing but I assume the head shape makes them different enough to save any copyright issues. The bib is the same on my yellow frog carded Guppy and these bibs were obtained from Don "chappy" Lawson who made them on his bib press.

This info makes it even more special to me thumbsupsmilie

I also held the carved prototype lure that the Wildfire Callop/gupp type shape was modeled on. That would be a good one to get thumbsupsmilie
