Frank - you forgot to tell them about the lures that had all the decompression-related blood from your ears and nose on them!

If only I'd known when I worked at AFN how significant those little numbers under the chins would have been...

Oh well, I did get to play with and look at a massive range of lures at AFN for almost 4 years - most from Frank and Rob Gaden from memory.

It wasn't my blood but we did burst an eardrum or two and definitely blew out some sinuses in the testing! I was an 'above water' organiser who went to Talbingo for food and made sure that everything was going as best it could. The guys who did the diving were the ones who had the hardest job - including finding the thermoclines!!

I do have all 1065 lures from the Blue book though! And a nice collection it is on its own.

Sorry Rupe - at the moment the Tempter 1 is, along with a Barra Boss giant - on display in my special case in my office (and many other Gaden woods). Will let you know if it ever goes on sale.

Cheers
Frank
