80mm Boomerang Evolution

Post by Schultzy » Sat Dec 20, 2008 7:26 pm

Here's a look at some of the various 80mm Boomerangs sitting in my den.

These, like all of my lures were bought for fishing, (not collecting), some from a little tackle shop in Inverell, housed in the same building where the Downunder Lure factory would later occupy space.

I think your right Oldman, they're not for collecting. Maybe you could swap them for a couple of Stumpies, they fish well.

Your not useing any Mollers at the moment are you ?

Hey Craig, I hope I didn't mis-lead you with the opening statement of my post.

All of my lures were originally purchased for fishing.

I've now boxes of old lures that have been honorably retired.

None of my old Boomerangs (or Newells, Brett Cambells or Tenterfield Lures, Bellbrooks, etc) go near the water now.

Neither do my old bass lures from the seventies.

Like many, my lure collection just happened accidentally as lures were acquired and retired. Fortunately I haven't been bitten by the collecting bug so I don't need to chase lures to hang on the wall (yet).

I do however treasure those I have accumulated during the past forty years (still own the first lure I was ever given).

Schultzy.. Watch out for that bug mate susssmilie .I too like probably all collectors started out buying just to fish them & like most fishermen only fished about 5% of them anyway.It recently occurred to me I`d been collecting for nearly 40yrs & didn`t realise it.So now most of the lures I buy will not see water again but they do remind me of my better days & the some of the treasures I have lost to the demons below.Be warned the older you get the easier it is for the bug to get ya.

I've got the latest version 8cm, it is exactly like your in the first picture... My boomerang has got a strange history because I've find it while fishing on the river on a tree and at the time I didn't know this australian bait and I was impressed by the huge lip, the biggest I've ever seen that make this lure an u-boot. I used it just one day for silure and has lived up to expectations ... great bait, I like it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0N_htvBCk4 Do not pay attention to the editing of video, I was joking when I made it
