Can anyone tell me who makes THE Deception range of lures i am mostly interested in the CHERAX..is it made in Aus or OS.
As i have had 3 now & the paint has cracked & worn off in places & i have not hit anything with 2
two of them..& the dammage seems to be mainly on sides & on the bottom of the lure.
I am just wondering ..if they a timber lure maybee water is getting in somewere & swelling the timber underneath & cracking the paint...just a thought..
Any ideas ? ? ?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[

Made is Australia. Used to be made by Paul Kneller in Maclean but he sold the rights to the lure to a manufacturing company, so he could purchase a store for a fishing tackle shop.
Since the new company took over the quality of the lures has gone downhill, with mostly dodgy paint jobs.
Pauls a great guy and has a great shop down here, specialising in plastics/estuary/beach/offshore.....etc etc etc'

Yes you are right, Paul IS a top bloke, knows his lures, their mechanics and specs like no other.
Im sure if you dropped in or rang him at Big River Bait and tackle, he could either show you one thats very similar or point you in the right direction.
Good luck.

I cant vouch for paul enough, his service is soooo much better than any other shop ive been to. And his wife cheryl is jsut as good. Those 2 in that shop are almost like my second set of parents. Cheryl gives me reasons to argue back at mum when she asks why i bought a new alvey wen i only bought a new rod 6 months ago.
I could go on but im not going to as im too tired. hehehehe
