Today I had another go at fishing for no fish.
And it is not for the lack of trying.
In fact there was 5 of us, all regular in this spot, and none of us landed a single fish.
Well I would love to know.
The weather was perfect without wind, and the water flat as a marble tombstone.
And no life was taken from it.
I did see and this is the first time that I saw that, a stingray being hooked on a popper.
But it unhooked 1 meter from the land...
In fact the weather was so good, that I took the opportunity to make a few photos.
And lucky you, here they are:
Sun rise at East Point.
Fishing just after dawn.
Seano hooked on a stingray with a popper.
Like in the olden days.
Yes no fish but as you can see still a beautiful morning.
And what about the two lures I hear you asking...
Well, Seano gave them to me. He said that he had these old lures that he is not using any more, so I could have them for my little fishing lure collection.
When I saw them, I was so happy that I gave him an Iron Hide lure made by Rupe.
I had receive this lure just the precedent day and really liked it, but was also very grateful for the two lure so I gave him this beautiful little lure.
In a few days, I might do a post about this lure, stay tuned.
So what are these two lures?
Well the first one is my second Classic Barra +10 with no rattle inside.
Same lure than in this post, but in a different colour.
The colour of this one is called Elton On Chrome, and here it comes:

And the second one is another Australian lure, but the body of this one is made of wood.
It is a Willo Lures, made by Craig Wilson from Brisbane, in Australia.
I am not absolutely sure of that, but I fear that the company does not exist any more.
Let me introduce you to a little part of the Australian recreational fishing history in images:
My first ever Willo Lures.
Battered like a well used fishing lure.
With it's name on the lower belly.
The summary of the morning was that we did not land a single scale, but had a few good laugh between friends, and as a bonus I got two new very cool old fishing lures.
The only problems being that if things continue like this, I will need more room to store all my lures. And Coming back home without a fish start to turn into a bad habit...
But hey, it could be worse.
Have a good day,
