Somewhere you can catch up on all the latest from the Gobsmacked Team

Sales on site closed until January

Hi everyone,

As you may have noticed, all lures are marked as out of stock on the website at the moment.

This is due to health issues. I will be out of action for the next 3-4 weeks.

Right now, we are just finishing up any orders received, and any tackle store orders. You can still get lures at selected tackle stores.

We won’t waste this time off. When we come back, we will be releasing some new colours and some new designs.

We will leave orders closed until I am back in the workshop and have a bit of stock built back up. So check back soon, to see the new lures.

Sorry if this has caused any inconvenience.

Only 1 month until the Lure Expo in Ipswich

Hey everyone, Well, it is almost that time of year again, the Australian Fly, Lure, and Outdoor Expo in Ipswich Qld.

I know, like many other lure makers, we are flat out here. Trying to finish up any orders we have received, as well as get lures ready for the expo. This means that we have had to stop taking orders on the website. Sorry if this is an inconvenience to any of our customers. But the shop will be open again, as soon as possible.

Well, it is only about 4 weeks to go, and true to form, I get bored with all the repetitiveness. So I start tinkering and playing with new designs! I know you all will be excited to hear that I have not one, but TWO new designs that I am releasing this year at the Expo.

We have  a lot of customers, who have been requesting salt water lures for quite some time. So, we have finally given them what they have been asking for. 🙂 We are releasing a handmade timber lure, designed for those saltwater game fish.

The other new release is a deep bodied diver. I am really excited about this one. I am not going to spoil the surprise, and you will have to wait a few more weeks to see them.

On top of these creations, I have made a collectable lure, in limited numbers. This year, it is the angler fish from our logo, Aloysius the Angler Fish. I had “fun” trying to make the fronds on top of Aloysius’ head. But, the finished product is Awesome!

I am really looking forward to this year’s expo. Fitzy and all the team do such an amazing job organising a great event for all of us Aussie lure lovers!

If you are heading to the expo, come and say hi! We will be doing demonstrations on turning timber lures on the lathe again.

ALSO, don’t forget to go see the guys from Fishing Monthly, and get your subscription. As usual, FMG is doing a special collectors lure for the first 40 people to subscribe, but ONLY AT THE EXPO. And, I might personally know the lure maker that has been asked to make this years very exclusive collectors lure for them! 😉 It will be a special Rattlesnake Walker, in the Fishing Monthly colours. Don’t miss out!

Hope to see you all there!

Business as usual

Hey everyone, just wanted to let you know, we have our website back up and running.

So, you are able to place your orders again. Thanks for your patience with us, while we got it sorted out.

If you do place an order, it may take a little while to get out to you. As usual, we are super busy here. Not only are we catching up on orders, and trying to get a few extras made for the upcoming Australian Lure and Fly Expo in Ipswich. But we are also in the process of moving. We have been based in Goulburn NSW since the beginning. But soon, Gobsmacked Lures will be moving to Cowra, in the Central West of NSW. So, just keep this in mind, when placing your order, and don’t leave it til the last minute to get your gear.


As always, we would love to see your catch. Please pop on to our Facebook page, and share your photos. We try to update our home page here on the website, with more recent catches on our lures. So, you never know, you might see a familiar face or two. So don’t forget to share.


Cheers everyone12472315_562583513914127_1685210764781791017_n
