Early Crazy Crawler

Post by Marrakai » Sat May 16, 2009 9:39 pm

Just watched a wooden Crawler sell on the-bay, surprised there's no thread covering these marvellous surface-lures.

Here's a pic of a nice example to start things off:

These early crawlers with the 3-colour eyes and steel-eyelet stoppers on the paddles are probably robust enough for the tropics, but I must confess I have never been game to toss one into the Daly or the Roper at night-time! Too many bad experiences with Fizzers that fail to return!

Nice old froggy Crawler;

Here's a slightly earlier (I think by rear hardware??) Heddon 'Crazy Crawler' in Flock Mouse with little leather ears. Model 2120 GM (Grey Mouse)

Love these things as they do work but this one won't be going near a fishies mouth for the rest of its life. Well and truly retired;
