Australia’s strongest fishing line since 1898

Platypus fishing lines
Platypus fishing lines was started by George Ross McPherson in 1898.
George was a Scottish rope maker by trade and saw the opportunity to make fishing line in Australia. In those days fishing line was made from twisted linen fibers and was a small diameter rope. Within a few years the popularity and reputation of Platypus grew and the business expanded. The name Platypus, was apparently chosen to signify the unique Australian nature of the product and just like the animal, being as good or useful on land (as a string or fine rope) as it was in the water (for catching fish).

Throughout the next century Platypus was passed through the family, currently the fourth generation McPherson is involved in running the business. Platypus has always prided itself on innovation; producing Australia’s first extruded nylon fishing lines in the 1960’s. Realising the advantages of Gel Spun Polyethylene braided lines, Platypus has operated a braiding plant for the last decade.

Recognised in the plastics industry as an authority on Nylon monofilament extrusion, Platypus produces many products other than fishing line, from hi-tech fibres for mining and medical applications to bristles for brushes. The diversity of our products often allows concepts and materials used in one application to be used to create better fishing lines.
