Debbie Dare is a super-keen collector of fishing lures, in between running the Glenlyon dam caravan park with her husband Brian. She particularly treasures hand crafted timber lures from the New England / Tenterfield region of NSW. The lures themselves are spectacular works of art with gleaming paint jobs, but for Debbie it’s really the stories behind the lure makers that drives her passion for lure collecting.
