Nice looking lure, Tony. And agreat bunch of lures from Wazza.

Wazza will know better than me, but I'm sure Pete told me that he had a bit to do with the Boomerang design. I know he had quite a few Boomerang lexan bibs, because he gave me some of them. In my early days in Tenterfield, long before I sold lures, I carved 2 "Boomerangs" for my own use. Still got those lures. One has never been used and the other looks like it has spent a bit of time in the tacklebox. I carved one lure with a "V" shaped underside and the other has a rounded body.

Not sure if this info is relevant to the post, but did consider the lexan bib info as relevant.

Cheers

Was told a bit of info today from a friend who also knew Peter, Peter showed him a picture of a lure made 1912 -18 in the USA which he had shown to Rob Smith and either Kevin Clarke or Frank Gaukroger of Downunder lures which they traced and the smooth Boomerang design evolved from there. Maybe this was the involvement Travis is talking about.

Jim I am in the process of cataloguing all my lures and when i get the Newells out of the cabinet i will show you a close up of the Natural lure made from a bottle brush cone (swims too).

Wazza,

above you have said there were maybe 3 sets made , would that be meaning a Small and Large one like you photo ?

And would that mean there is a Bigger brother to the one I have in my cabinet ? droolsmilie

Now this post has come back up to the top ,I will post a request in here.

Seems in Tenterfield there was a lot of sharing went on in the early days and this was obviously a good thing for all the Lure makers.

I am a huge fan of the Boomerang lures and specially the timber ones droolsmilie . Since I have gained possession of this Fantastic Newell Boomerang

I have followed some posts on here and now more informed about a few more makers with there variations of this lure, Besides the ones that are obvious can anyone help with the names of other makers whom share this .

1. Down under .....................I know where it is just need to find the street address crazysmilie
2. RMG.............................. I have my helpers looking for this one thumbsupsmilie
3.Travers Powell......................... don't spose you would have any of those Lexen Bibs left Travers droolsmilie
4. ?
