Default Don't laugh....

... but does anyone have an ORIGINAL banjo minnow set? I'm not looking for the 006 version (the newer version) but the original ones, sold in the 90's. I have 2 (count it....2) left out of my big 100+ piece set my grandpa bought me back in the day and they've gotten pretty ragged over the years.

The one I loved the most was the 5" firetiger chartreuse that (apparently) the company forgot they sold. It's not on the website ANYWHERE and I can't find an original set on eBay.

I realize these are not desirable baits, and don't work as advertised. I realize that these are mostly a joke amongst anglers, and I realize that they're pretty much crap to most people... But I actually figured how to catch fish with these back east. Since I'm moving back, I'd like to have a few in the ol' arsenal.

Pictured below is my LAST remaining 5" chartreuse firetiger patterned banjo minnow. I hope someone can help me out.

Neal has some but they have snagging hooks in the head!

I bet you can probably trade two or three of the images below per each Banjo minnow Neal has...

Either this or borrow one of Neals spear guns and put the minnow on the tip. You could also get one of the grenades Neal uses and attach the minnow to that.

The ones I'm looking for are the "Virtual Reality" banjo minnow... They were the first ones that got their own "infomercial," IMO.

THIS INFOMERCIAL IS FOR THE NEWER 006 MINNOW... But it's still fun to watch.

http://www.angelfire.com/tv2/banjo_minnow/

This is a package deal with 12 original banjo minnows and 12 VR photoprinted minnows (the ones I'm after)...

Anyone done business with angelfire.com before? It looks pretty arcane... like a late 90s mail order site.

A little afraid to do business with an online company with 20 year old internet technology.
