Campbell Belly-Flop

Post by Lure-Nut » Thu Oct 28, 2010 7:29 pm

Brett only ever made a pair of Belly-Flop's then discontinued them as he thought they too closely resembled another lure on the market .... this is the #1 Belly-Flop and has an 85mm body length. The design of these lures is quite unique and worthy of sharing .... however can anyone work out the following:

1. What is the lure that he thought it too closely resembled ?

2. What is the unique design feature of this lure (Simon is not allowed to give away the answer just yet) ?

What do you think ???

Brad .... you were part there, Brett believed this looked too much like the Whitmore Cray so he never made any more -duh

But there is something very interesting about the design that involves one of his other classic lures yay

How about the Platapus ?

And the one picture Simon has with the eyes painted on the back as well as the front , but these lures have the bib at other end ?

Stunning looking lure Rob clapclap and i reckon if the bib was in the other end it may take on a more familiar shape ??? Mike

@Lure-nut

I like it, very retro.

No hints from me.

Guy's, too close so I'll give it away .... the Belly-Flop is a Platypus split in half and reversed for the bib location - hence the narrow profile and shape -duh -duh thumbsupsmilie

Seriously, I had to get a Platypus out to compare it because the effect is so different it's amazing bowsmilie

Brett should have made more than 2 -duh

Now one of my favourite Campbell's thumbsupsmilie
