Mambri Kra Bobs

Post by yekcuts » Sun Jul 27, 2008 5:40 pm

These lures although different in design all came on cards with the same Mambri Lures Kra Bob insignia. Not sure if they have specific names but they were hand made in Ulamambri in Western NSW.

The Crayfish is the same in everyway to a Baker Kray by Warren from JaySea. Even the eyes are the same, are you sure you know what it is. I reckon if you had them side by side you couldn't tell them apart.

Craig, all three of these lures came from the same place on identical cards so as far as I know they are all Mambri Lures. Also they were bought in good faith as Mambris.
Maybe you could post a pic of a Baker Cray so we can compare??

You are right, they are very similar. The only differences I can see are that the nose is longer and pointier, the bib is different and the first cut behind the head is straight down on mine where as it curves around & underneath the head on the Baker.

Warren bought the rights to this lure from George Baker, Warren called it a Baker Kray and yours is a Kra Bob. I bet the maker of your lure also knew George. I believe George was from inland NSW.

Hi Yekcuts, the lures you have are indeed very collectable, they are George Baker originals. They were probably made in the late 80's, I consider Mr Baker to be one of the best lure makers this Country ever produced, when you consider that this old man hand carved his lures with a knife and sand paper and painted them with spray cans.
Mr Baker stopped making lures in the early 90's due to problems with his hands.I bought the rights to many of his lures and had them moulded, the Baker Krey was named after him. Hope this helps.

Cheers Samurai

Hi Samurai,
Thanks for the heads up; bowsmilie bowsmilie if I had known what they really were I may not have haggled the price so much. lol
I guess I'll take 'em off my rods' and stash 'em away nice and safe! lol
