Mully, these were originally made by John Laws, {not golden microphone John Laws} of Lawsies Lures fame. I'm pretty sure the Jumbuck series were his 1st lure and then came Lawsies Lures.

You have the little ones here, others are 100mm bodied i think. I also think he sold out some time in the last 10 or 12 yrs to whoever owns it now, dunno for sure.

They definitely don't look like that anymore!!

The biggest size are a good cod lure - I used to have a couple but they got lost to snag piles....

I only have this style which is the original. What do the new ones look like Willy? I haven't seen them or taken any notice.

Do ya know what year that is Mully? I think it's a later chart due to the lure styles more than anything. Could be wrong? Lotsa early patterns missing as well.

Lures 3, 19 & 20 in those patterns & lures are old yet also new for the day way back if that makes sense.

19 & 20 were amongst the original Lawsy patterns of those lures. still have a 19 lure in that pattern Lawsy gave me telling me it was the best trout pattern going. Also a 20 exact to the chart.
I got him to do me a few special lures. They cost me a Lefty Krey video at the time. Suckered each other...... lol

I'll email ya a story about the special colours. Bloody crack-up it was.
