Reverse of cards for 'Flashback Spoon' and 'Blade Runner'
The Tacklemaster 'Magician' is another of Leigh's designs that shows up occasionally.
The standard size 'Blade Runner and the mini version
Tacklerat Lures:
Tackle Rat Lures are one of those lures that show up occasionally but no idea of maker or area of manufacture. Lures were shown as unknown examples by Gary Wade.
TAG Lures:
TAG Lures are a handcrafted timber lure that is made in small numbers. More information coming soon . . .
Tailer Guard or Spinner :
This lure was advertised in the Sil Rohu Fishing catalogue dated November 1941. Fitted with old barrel swivel and wire snap.
Taminmin Lures - NT:
Little known about these wooden lures but it looks like they are part of the Forrester brothers stable and are related to G lures, Bass Tad etc. The pictured lure below was sold on Ebay for $30 in 2012 and was a 110mm scorpion shape. Taminmin is the name of a rural college in Humpty Doo, Northern Territory so there maybe a connection.
Tas Craft Lures - TAS:
Very little known about these exceptional lures that were made in Tasmania and that the maker, Dick Reynolds is sadly deceased. Dick was also a reknowned rod builder in Tasmania. The lures range from small 'spotted dog' grasshoppers, minnows similar to jointed Walures, and many other patterns that are unique in their own right. Lures would have been displayed on a metallic blue card as shown in the photo with a map of Tasmania in the left corner and leaping trout below. c.1980's and 90's.
(Above) A nice selection of Dick Reynolds made lures - high quality small trout minnows.
(Right) Example of early Tas Craft card and two unique lures in 'spotted dog' patterns. This is a typical, highly successful pattern used for trout and mimics the spawning spots on brown trout.
(Left) Examples of Tas Craft lures - high quality timber lures. The jointed models are sometimes mistaken for Walures however the eyelets are different and the colour patterns are noticeably different.  
All the lures in these photos were found in Tasmania and purchased at auction. Dick Reynolds lures are of exceptional quality and finish with some outstanding original designs and generalist copies of successful Tasmanian lures like the Walure but also many other influences. No ongoing sales records and rarely seen. 
A big thank you to Ricki Strang for access to lures.
 Tassie Devil Lures - TAS:
A popular lure now recognised worldwide is the Tassie Devil lures. See Wigstons Lures
Tassie Katch King Lures - TAS:
An obscure lure from the 1960's.  Michaelis Hallenstein & Co Pty Ltd were a wholesaler of fishing tackle and were advertising these lures in local Tasmanian publications such as Southern Tasmanian Licensed Anglers Association. Adverts left are from 1961.
The lures show three separate models including a cobra, a devon and a spoon similar to the Wonder wobbler shape. The spoons are fitted with a small plastic attractor on the rear treble and these colours are good reference colours to distinguish from other makers. Lure presented on a blue and white card with a map of Tasmania and in a sealed bag.
Tassie Lures - TAS:
Another of the resourceful lure makers from Tasmania. Unknown maker or area of manufacture. The individual lures without cards are both different but one matches a Tassie Lure on the card. They were uncovered in Launceston so this may be a clue to origin. Definitely vintage with the copper split rings. Simple stamped card. Two other models of metal spoon are also shown. The little red ring on the treble if still present is a good identifier.
Tel-Lure Lures - TAS:
Another of the unrecognised vintage makers from Tasmania (these are labelled as being made in Tasmania as they are most found in Tasmnaia and Victoria. It is possible they were manufactured in Victoria.). The Tel-Lure has a very distinctive shape and finish. Heavy cobra style with painted wings. Photos show some of the colours, From the Trout Trollers Facebook Page.
Tas Highland Lures - TAS:
David Dick is an avid trout fisherman who lives in remote south western Tasmania. As well as enjoying fly fishing and making fishing flies, 'Tyenna Dave' as he is known makes a serious trout lure. Shaped by hand from King William Pine (one of the rarest Australian timbers), with through wire construction, these lures are ballasted for heavy flow rivers eliminating 'blow out'. Finished in a combination of hand painting and air brush, his lures feature hand cut poly carbonate bibs and hard epoxy finish. THL can cater to any size lure but release 4 distinct models, the 'Highland Fling', 'Highland Minnow', 'Highland Killer' and 'Trout Popper'.
(Right) The first run of THL lures were released in 2011 and were made from balsa. Some of these lures had extremely good actions and do survive however the models evolved quickly and by 2012 THL Lures were made exclusively of King William Pine. These lures will only be signed 'TD' which stands for 'Tyenna Dave'.
(Below) Examples of early balsa THL minnows in sizes 6-7cm. These were the beginnings of the rainbow and brown trout patterns and the frog pattern. The top pattern was adapted from one of JD's excellent colour schemes.
(Below) Examples of early balsa THL minnows in sizes 4-5cm. Not many of these survive and date to 2010/11.
Later THL 'Trout Popper' in rainbow trout and spotted brown trout colours.
Left shows later THL packaging and showing THL 'Highland Fling' and 'Highland Minnow' in rainbow trout colour.
Later THL minnows in rainbow trout, spotted brown trout, AU, blackfish and brook trout colours. These lures are all through wired and made from King William Pine.
Left shows a nice tuna caught off Maria Island on a larger beefed up version of the THL Minnow.
Tas Highland Lures have forged a reputation for attracting lots of larger sized trout - these photos show an early foiled Huon Pine 'Fling' and a smaller balsa 'Salmon' - an early colour.
From late 2011 Tas Highland Lures were made exclusively from King William Pine (usually referred to as King 'Billy' Pine).
Below shows an early THL 'Highland Fling' with the older scale pattern. Spotted brown trout pattern. Opposite is a balsa minnow in salmon colour c.2010.
(Left) THL popper in brook trout colour - this colour has become a staple in the THL range and is a highly effective pattern.
Tyenna Dave has also started making some larger lures and also a range of poppers that are suited not only to trout but to estuary and saltwater species too. Some of the larger lures developed in 2014, were made to target offshore species such as Southern Bluefin Tuna and feature the first THL lures with aluminium bibs. The THL Squid Jigs were first used off Maria Island in 2015 and proved themselves on some nice specimens.

The card below is a later card but again it is now a few years old and still showing original price on the shelf.
The lures shown left are the earlier timber models with twisted wire eyelets and hand painted eyes. Paint fisnishes have always been first class. The eyes on the lures above and below show the later stick on eyes that were used although they have been used for alot of years now.

John and two older mates nicknamed Puddy and Cyrill met when they were sugar cane cutters on the Tweed River at Murwillumbah in the 1960's/70's. As technology advanced and mechanisation took over, John and Cyrill moved to work on various farms in the Tenterfield area and eventually went their own ways with John settling on a property in Moree, NSW.

Tilsan Lures - QLD:
Tilsan lures is  the company that was started by Til and Sandra Martinello. Til sponsored the 'Windermere Classic' in 1990. The lures were built because Til was tired of paying the high price for Rapalas back then. The lure worked and were further developed for the market. Tilsan Lures took the market by storm in the late eighties and the company invested alot of money in a replicating process that produced balsa blanks of high quality. Their lures have a manufactured one piece stainless steel metal harness that runs from head to tail and ballasts the lure. 
The lure above is an early wooden hand signed Tilsan lure that is the pre-runner to all other Tilsan lures.

Lure and More Forum 2009: '' I have made a few lures over the years but only for my own use. Started doing a bit of muck around work for Mike at Inverell Fishing and Hunting. He thought that the Tomzas might be a saleable item. The lures are only a hobby, but I have caught fish on most of my own lures so they seem to work. The snap of the lures shown by Capt. Seaweed are called WoodyRatlr. Did a few Brokbak Ratlrs (articulated) and have just finshed a few which Ive called Woody Coblar. These are basic catfish shape, should work well on cod. Nothing fancy to my lures, just a retirement hobby. 

So enjoy yourself, GO FISHING WITH A TOMZA WOODY.''

Tonk Lures - NSW/QLD:
Rob 'Lure Nut' Dunn made a small amount of timber lures in the 1990's. His aim was to develop a lure for deep impoundment trolling for Australian Bass and Golden Perch (yellowbelly or callop).  The lures utilised deep diving polycarbonate bibs. This particular lure was designed for fishing Glenbawn Dam trolled deep along the river beds - enough were made for mates. Models included the  'Long Tonks', 'Fat Tonks' and 'Small Tonks'. The feature of the 'Long Tonk' and all of the Tonk models was an extremely high frequency at relatively low speeds. 
Model above is a very early 'Long Tonk' while the other photos show three different models and the comparison that includes the ' Tonk' (top), 'Fat Tonk' (middle) and 'Little Tonk' (bottom).
'In the photo left are the two other Tonks - 'Little Tonk' variant with a squared off bib, the nudie was called a 'Slim Tonk' with an amazing action, the middle one was a Tad Tonk and the other I'm now officially naming 'Simons Stubbie Tonk' cause it's a variant'  R.Dunn 2010
A few earlier designs and alternative card shown opposite
Due to work commitments Tonk Lures were not made for a few years however Rob approached Ted Sartori from Esoteric Lures to assist in developing the modern Tonk series of lures and from there Rob has now developed a system for making his lures, developing the lure making process on his own.
There has been some more Tonks made by Rob in 2014 when he had a resurgence of motivation to make more lures due to  a bit of extra time. 
Lure Hub Oz caught up with Rob after Expo 2016 and the modern Tonk lure is a work of art and purpose built and it will be interesting to see where the Tonk lure goes from here. After a lapse from making lures for the last couple of years, Rob is again making a few more Tonk lures in 2018.

Below shows a range of Tonk Lures that are owned by Nick Haralambakis who has caught good fish on the Tonks
