Ron Davies lovely fella, I think on here as D Dads he made many fine lures, some under Goanna Lures, see LHOz Billy. Interestingly, this one doesn't have a belly hook for stability? Reckon it would spin a bit due to this. Ron used to come up from his Cessnock home each Expo, due to age hasn't been able to make the last couple.

Had a look through my boxes, only have the one Goanna Lure that Ron gave me around Expo 2016, hanging on my one maker wall. If I had more than one it'd be yours, Gary Akers maybe able to help source one, or any of the other Maitland area boys. Ron made many different styles all great quality, don't think you'd find on Ebay, goodluck with the quest.
