Post by jimmymate » Thu Aug 20, 2009 6:29 pm

Just thought i would share some of Herberts lures with you all. I hope this picture does the finish on these lures justice as they are simply brilliant little lures

I will take a few more shots of others i have soon.

If anyone else has any Herbert lure i would love to see them thumbsupsmilie

Hey Bullrout,

Herbert Lures are made by Herbert Safones, he has lived here in Australia and frequently returns home to Urugauy. He supplied a small amount to Compleat Angler Melbourne and some to Paul at Cranbourne tackle shop. He stopped making lures quite a few years ago now and the ones above where some he made for some cash when he last returned home. Think he made 100 or so of this model (i couldnt help myself and bought 35) thumbsupsmilie .

Not sure how many models but alot of one offs and limited runs of different models.

Here are a few more. Sorry the pics arnt good but you get an idea.

I think there is a pic of one of his lures in the mystery/unknown section under "like hueys but different"

Hope you like.

Nice lures alright.Have you tried them?.I know your collecting them but wondering how they rate at hooking up with just single hooks?I had a go years ago at replacing trebles with single hooks on similar sized lures and i could hardly ever hook up and if i did id lose the fish anyway,changed back to trebles and it was a totally different story. howdy

I have only fished the small minnows for trout and i dont find the singles too much of a problem although I would prefer trebles or W hooks on all my "fishing" lures. Herbert is very big on catch and release and his thoughts were that they will cause less damage to the fish. I like them from a collectors view as not alot of lures have singles with no split rings on straight through one piece wire.

I will try and post a few more pics in the next week or two of others i have, just cant locate them at the moment. -duh

Cheers Jim

Looks to me like one of Herberts, he use to put a black dot near the tail of alot of his lures as a kind of signiture. thumbsupsmilie


Do you know if the lure came with singles which have been replaced with trebles as almost all his lures from my understanding came with singles

Jim,

Do you know how old your single hook Herberts are?

The ones I have from Compleat Angler Melbourne city around 5 to 7 years ago have trebles on split rings.
They do have the black dot under the tail.

I was told very recently that the maker lived in Howlong at one stage.Does that make sense to you?

Cheers,

Old Jim (007 Bond)

Interesting Oldfish, All the Herberts i own i have purchased from the man himself. Maybe he put singles on the lures he was planning on using for his own use and possible used split rings and trebles on all the one he sold to tackle shops, something i will confirm when i get a chance.

Cheers Jim
