Freddo The Frog Fishing Lure.

Hi there,

Here comes two things that I like, with the Freddo the Frog fishing lure...
Chocolate and fishing lures...

Freddo the frog is a very popular chocolate that most Australian children would recognise in the blink of an eye.

Here comes Freddo.

And the Wigston's Lures factory, located in Tasmania is not very far from the Cadbury chocolate factory. Ok, Tasmania is not a very big island, by Australian standards, so this one wasn't very hard.
Honest, I don't know how but one day the two decided to work together, and to use the wrapper  of the tiny Freddo as one of the colour base for the Tasmanian Devil lures.
In fact they even produced the lure in this colour in two sizes. In 7 and 13.5 gr. (0.24691773 and 0.47619849 oz.) 
This would tend to prove that I am not the only angler to think that if the fishing get slow, a little chocky is always welcomed.
The lucky me, got the two of them. I will have to confess that this is not very difficult to achieve, as they are still on the Wigston's Lures catalogue, anyone can order them online.

And here they are:

The two of them.

And now to finish en beautée here comes a dream of a frog:

Chocolate and fishing lure...

It is true that the past two months I was not able to go fishing as much that i would have loved to. To be exact, I spent more time looking at fishing lures than to wet a line...

But hey, it could be worse.
Have a good day,

Le plus drole c'est que chaque fois que j'achette ces chocolats, je pense a toi.
