Top looking lures. The one with the white belly and any other lure with a white belly so I'm told by a fellow down in Melbourne are sure fire winners every time. All of his "fishing lures" have a white belly or at least some smattering of white below. Another guy I fish with swears by any hard body plastic lure with a clear or see through belly for bream.

They were originally John Bennet Baby Merlins until he sold to Dan McGrath who for a short time sold them as Dan McGrath Baby Merlins and then Dan changed the name to Attack Lures.

They went from timber to plastic whilst JB owned them as far as I know. As for yrs etc I can't remember these days.

I gave my son one in the earlish 90's which is a Dan McGrath Baby Merlin, he still has the lure in it's original packaging.

Here's a Dan McGrath Attack lure.Guessing it would've been made in the mid 90's.I have a few others but they are old and beaten up.Great lures for Trout, Reddies and Bass.

G'day Fizza, your exactly right !!!! It was about 1990 , J.B was making them from timber , and had been doing so for a few years. He made his own Dye-set ( with the help of an old engineer ) and started making them in two (2) piece plastic. They were glued together, not Ultra-sonic-welded. He made them for a while like that , and then sold it to Dam Mcgrath ( John called him "Dooog" ). After a short period of time , Dan started calling them "Attack-Lures".
The timber ones in the photo are definately J.B.'s creations. Bodies were made on the copy-lathe he build for himself. He also built many metal presses to knock out bibs for the Baby merlin, shallow bennett merlin, and deep bennett Merlin. Very clever bloke !!! Great Lures.
