Hey there
I am an avid trouter and one of my all time favourite lure is the devon spinner about 25mm long .... now, over the years they have been lost, broken wings etc, I have ordered some from the UK BUT, they are not as good as the ones I have.
Next thing is, I have learned that they are now made in Tassie again by ABANKA lures...can some one let me know if this is correct and if I send the money plus extra for postage could some one make a trouter very happy
Cheers

Nice, I used to have some, but they never really worked for me. I ended up get on the Tassie Devil band wagon.

I thought so too, I grew up in the southern highlands and snowies and still love trouting and hunting etc and we used all the old lures = celtas- spoons etc, but I still go back to the devons and regularly out fish all my mates ... heh heh heh, still got the touch ... or maybe I am "touched" in the head ey

They are/were made by a guy in my home town. Not sure if he's still in business. Ph. Wigston's Sports on 0362 612733. They will know for sure. Good luck.

Yeah as Pat said Steve is a home town bloke and If I see him I will ask if he still does them or if you ring Wigstons ask Rodney as he is a mate of Steves
