A Lure Signed by Bear Grylls.

Hi there,

A while ago, I was lucky enough to be gifted a fishing lure signed by Bear Grylls from the TV show Man vs. Wild.

Who in its right mind, would gift me such a great present you may ask...
Well no one else than Mario, the producer of the great fishing radio show Tales From The Tinny.
One evening at the Ski Club, he said that he had a signed lure to give me. It didn't take me long after that to give him a call, and tell him that we should catch up one day for lunch.

So we met up for a quick lunch, and share a few fishing stories, with me impatient to see this lure that Mario had told me about.
When he pulled out of his pocket this great big black Bomber 16A, hand signed by Bear Grylls himself. While he was in Darwin for the filming of a segment of his television show. A big smile, I could not hide.
Without any more teasing, here it is, still in the box:

The signed Bomber in the box.

Yes, for the purpose of this post, I did open the box, and made a photograph of the lure by itself, so you could see it better.

Bear Grylls signed black Bomber.

In the box it quickly went back, just after the photo, and from now on will stay in there.
Because, yes this is another lure that will never swim. Even if one of my fishing buddies told me that it would be great to see it hanging from the bucket mouth of a big Barramundi. There is no way I am going to risk losing it.

The only problem that I have with this  fishing lure, is that I now have another sub-section in my little collection: the celebrities signed fishing lures...
And that I have only one in this category.

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