Seemingly the Thread on the above topic has been lost in the mix, but I have requested the "owner" to assist in the recovery, so lets pray it's possible.

However, I will re-post my last response on the topic.

Wow, how or where do I begin.....
I have never met the man behind the lures, but it feels as if we know each other quite a long time, & I speak from the heart.

Mikea is a man of his word, & if he says something , he keeps to his word.
Thks & respect Mike 👏  I really appreciate all the lures you have given me......I can only say wow-wow & wow..... & a big huge blessed thankyou.

This is the 2nd time round Mike has given me free lures, specifically MirrOlures, & Yes, I offered to buy or pay for them, but no way, Mike insisted I only pay for postage.
That I do gladly, but need to express that Mike's offer & gesture is larger than life.....& worth much more than the lures to me.

Mike gave me a mixed bag of lures, & to be precise & to ad some tease to the topic, a
2 lt Ice cream container full, consisting of quite a few prescious Bagley handcrafted lures, MirrOlures & a Badonk amongst the lots others.

One can quickly deduct from the colours & lure choice that Mike is an old fisherman & stick to basic colors of choice & success & I would give my
@#$%&₩¥ to spend a few days listening to Mike's experiences, catches & fishing trips. He has most definitely some serious experiences & success stories to talk about.

Let me tease some guys with a few pics of the precious ones.

Once again.....Thks Mike. They will all be put to good use, & most certainly will catch some serious fighters.
May you still catch a monster of a lifetime in time to come.

Those MirroLures are priceless. In the same class as the discontinued Rapala Skitterwalk.

I must seriously be sounding like a guy in distress or a very poor angler at the rate I get given free lures......but I can say 1 thing, I am a definitely a Lure & spoon hoarder....junkie...fanatic.....call it what you like... I admit it.


Oh, & not all types or all sorts, only certain types, makes, & naturally only those I use for my fishing.
It's a craze one cannot explain, nor will many understand.

Just to elaborate how it came about.......I helped Schabies to sell a few of his fishing reels he had previously advertised on SL, & to say thankyou, he had sent me a "box of toys" & am sure he must've read the now lost thread where I was looking for old MirrOlures.
He said to me "there is a parcel on its way to say thks & am sure there will be MirrOlure amongst them."

Demmit, that feeling you get when you did not expect a parcel,  & now knowing it is full of toys, & you become the child behind a Xmas present about to be opened....not knowing what to expect & you have a tummy full of butterflies.....its a genuine wow feeling.

To help someone sell fishing tackle is not always as easy as it seems, but I get joy helping others to sell tackle, especially knowing the item/s & it's demand amongst other anglers, & knowing lotsa anglers, that helps alot & most probably you have sold it 75% already.

And No, at no extra or inflated cost nor at any profit margin nor interest or markup.....but pure joy to help a fellow angler to sell his tackle & continue to enjoy our lovely sport.
So, I am a Lure junkie of note & love every minute of it.

I need to say a Huge thanks to Schabies, for the lures. I am quite sure many were hardly or not even used at all, but I am for sure going to put them all thru the test.
The lures are all in my "got to/must have" range, & when Schabies says he is selling a reel in prestine condition, you dont have to doubt or worry......believe me, the guys who has previously bought his reels were all super chuffed with the condition & selling price.
So Mana to you Schabies & Thks again for the toys.

Ben, if anyone on Sealine deserves a keepnet full of mana, it is you. It is people like you, who are always willing to assist other Sealiners, that makes the forum worthwhile notwithstanding all the other social media platforms. Many thanks!🎣🎣
