Nautilus Evolution

Post by Capt.Seaweed » Fri Jul 16, 2010 5:12 pm

G'day All,
Been awhile since we've had an NT maker post, thought I'd share the changing shape as the Chris Hurt Nautilus range evolved.
Originally he called them Nautilus, but as new models came about, he later named these Barra Blitz, after producing other models including fizzers and poppers along with his Mack Magnets.
Top lure the original shape mid 80's, next down around 88, third possible early 90's and lastly the current shape in his 'Roy' (Andrew Symonds) livery.
The Roy was spawned as a local joke, after his fall from grace for going fishing, instead of training for a one-day international.
Was lucky to find no.2 as I'd lost all mine to fish over the years, but luckily scored this gold one from a junk shop recently, giving me the set again, this one happens to be my favourite shape for barra, hope you like.

@barragure

very informative, they are a solid looking lure and look very functional.

Had been to Fishing & Outdoors in Darwin a few times when living in Kununurra but at the time I was buying Manns 10+, 12+ and 20+.

Another thing to add to "if only I knew then what I know now file".
