It was at the front because I accidentally wrote about Tasmanian lures and they had a special issue about Tasmania so I went 'legit' in the front of the mag!! lol lol

Still not sure about the other one mate - try and put it in the unknowns and see what others think.

BTW Leon Cubitt lures sure to go up in value and get the recognition they deserve.

Dave,
Just found this post, you're a legend helped me name another of my unknowns.
My lure is almost identical to your green with black bars, mine is green/yellow with black bars.
Picked mine up in Georgetown (north of Launceston) in a small general store in 1993.
Know the date accurately, as I was down that way doing a Seatel satellite tracker job for Santos at Bells Bay on the Tamar.
Bloke in shop told me it was called a 'Devil Cake', until your post didn't know the maker, thanks mate. thumbsupsmilie

Wow Brolly that looks like the kind of paint job only I could do - is that Liquid Paper?

Can hardly believe that trout ate those things, but love it nonetheless.

You guys really do have way too many lures (and that is said in the most sincere form of jealousy)

Be great to see it
Dave the Devil Cake was made by Wigston's, maker of the Tassie Devil I seem to recall.

Cheers Brad

G'day Dave, here it is. Sorry about the out-of-focus appearance, don't know how to overcome this.

OK so the bloke in the shop at Georgetown was incorrect, it's not a 'Devil Cake'.
So does anyone know what Leon Cubitt called this one?
Dave, would you call this a frog pattern, very similar to yours except mine yellow where yours is white.

Here's another Leon Cubitt lure with a slightly different body-shape from those already posted.
Picked it up in Tassie last month, hanging on the wall in ol'mate Dave's fishing shack.

<click to enlarge>

This lure is made of urethane or similar dense plastic material.
Were Cubitts always plastic, or were early versions made of timber?
