Always been favourites since I first discovered Bagleys baits, and always will be :madmick:

I found the finish on them cracks straight away. Catch fish though.

Same here, I topcoat them before using them now. Could never understand why they went to great lengths to get a superb paintjob then coated in with a topcoat that split straight away...still love them though :thumbs:

Some cracked sooner than others of the Bagley's I have/had. Still got some Bang O Minnows going spare. :wink:

Bagley's are definitely now on the general (US) collector's radar and there will be specialist 'Bagley's Buffs' now too. You a!ready see 'collectors's speak' creeping into descriptions on eBay, like "early brass hardware" "looks unfished" and "tough colour" (presumably the reason for the big price on that rare purple B3).

I'll never regard them as vintage, simply because I considered them to be 'ultra modern' when I first started using them and I refuse to acknowledge that perhaps I'm now that old! :madmick:

(I'll have to dig some of mine out and post a 'centrefold' picture :cheers: )

Very nice John particularly like the two colour schemes in the top left. I have always enjoyed using the balsa D-B3 and would like to acquire some of the magnum versions though they dont come up for sale in the UK often.
Some good info here:

I`ve a DB3 Magnum here in good nick, in red craw pattern if it`s any good to you....just give me a shout.

John, any idea what the top bait is mate? more elongated than the standard DB3 below it in the pic. No model name on it, just marked "Bagleys" on the belly...

Some kind of '¹digger' for sure. Parallel lips go straight down. Has it got a belly weight? Maybe an early version of the 'dredge''?
Probably worth $$$$$$ :laughs:

Pretty much everything identical to the DB3 apart from the elongated body shape John

DB3 Magnum then?

Here's a nice mixed bunch to keep us going. The little 'Fat Cats' are almost impossibly cute! :hug:

No, not a Magnum, I have one here for comparison. Some beauties there John. I love the old "small fry" series of baits. Got quite a few Bass`n`Shads here too :smile:

Bagley's are associated with baits made from hardwood and balsa (I know, also technically a hardwood . . ) but their plastic baits are very good too.

Can anyone think of any other Bagley's plastic baits, other than their 'Top Gun''?
