A few Relic Lures

Post by Pecheur » Sat Jul 09, 2011 4:02 pm

Hi there,

Yes I still have a full set of the Reservoir Dogs fishing lures, despite fishing with them on a regular basis.
These lures were made a few year ago by Relic Lures, a company based in America, and they were produced in reference to the gangster movie Reservoir Dogs made by Quentin Tarantino.

And here they are:

The full set.

The set is from top to bottom: Mr. White, Mr. Pink, Mr. Orange and Mr. Blond.
And yes they can give your terminal tackle a gangsta look with the bullet holes and black sunglasses.

Image
Your talking to me?

They have the Reservoir Dogs logo tattooed on their bellies:

Bearing it in on the stomach like a Yakusa tattoo.

And their individual name on the tail:

Introducing Mr. Orange

Image
And Mr. Blond.

Ho yes I can hear you asking: "But do they catch any fish?"
To this I will be pleased to tell you that yes they are efficient in the fishy business:

Because yes, all this fishing can make you hungry...
So here comes another lure, also made by Relic Lures, the Hamburger!

Everybody likes a bit of junk food now and then...

These ones were made for the restaurants Maragaritaville in the USA.

With the restaurants logo under the belly.

As you can see I got these lures before I even started to think about having a collection of fishing lures. And they have been in the water more than once.
In fact I had the double set of the Reservoir Dogs ones, I only have one full set now.
I know this is a bit silly as they would have been great in the collection...
And I still use them...

Have a good day,
Pecheur

Hi Rivermandave,

Thanks for the information!

By any chance would you know if they (MargaritavillE) have made other type of lures than the burger?

Have a good day,
Pecheur

Hi Rivermandave,

Ok thanks for the information.
I was just thinking that it would have been fun to get al the different lures that they would have made...

Maybe I should be a bit more carful with it then...

Have a good day,
Pecheur
