Bargain bin lures

Had to post this one. Went to a local tackle store recently and saw the attached lures (less the Ecogear SX-40s on the bottom row, put there for comparison) in the bargain bin. Upon enquiry was told they were hand made / wooden body / good for bream .... and despite being marked at $5 each was told they were infact being sold for $2 each! Now I thought to myself it just aint right lettin those lures sit there gatherin dust so decided to buy the lot.

Two weeks ago, tried a black and white one and scored a flattie.

Now I'm thinking if only everyone gave up using SX-40s sooner or later they'd have to find there way into the bargain bin.

A blokes gotta dream ....

Red Herring,

Nice catch :D

I have afew of the Ugly Duckling's and I have to say I'm impressed with them. Nice tight action, swim true and look good (not in a catch fisherman way - but in a catch fish way: I guess that's why they were $2). They have also caught fish for me.

BTW - Which BCF did you clear out - So I know where not to go to stock up for myself.
