THOUGHT I POST THESE UP.
POOR COUSINS TO THE FANTASTIC WOODEN AND SHELL INLAY SPECIMENS. ONE OF THESE DAYS WHO KNOWS!!!
THEY ARE MOULDED WITH FIXED BIBS.
LOOK GOOD THOUGH.IMG_1448.JPGIMG_1449.JPG
It is over 8 years since this thread was started
The Poor Cousins were fascinating to me as they are just as elusive and desirable as their timber cousins.
Yes it is a moulded lure, not every one’s cup of tea. But for the “discerning “ its rarity is well worth the pursuit.
That brings me to the lure that Jas won on the bay.
There were discussions in certain social media re this particular lure, some of which were quite sensible, but it also include
1 the seller was deceitful not stating the lure was “plastic” in the item description
2 the bidders had rocks in their head
3 the amazement re the price realised
However what really gets me is the reference for certain web page for further information.
In this web page, blatant as can be stated, that some sources are from the “defunct” Lureandmore forum.
This included one of my pics, from this thread depicting the set of 3 lures, timber on top, moulded with detachable bib on the bottom, with the Poor Cousin in between, moulded with fixed bib.
That is all fine. I didn’t mind a bit of pinching and pilfering from this poor defunct forum
What is not fine , and it pisses me off very badly is the Poor Cousin was described as a timber specimen with a plastic bib
Pinched the info and re present it, modified it and f*** ed it up altogether
How can these “experts “ get it so wrong
One good thing is the Poor Cousins in Aussie lure history has been given the importance they deserved.
Anyhow the bay is not a bad place, is it
Now I am off the soap box
