Platypus Fishing Line

Tiger Lures acquires distribution rights for Platypus Fishing Lines.

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).
About Platypus Fishing Lines – Australia’s strongest fishing line since 1898
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.
About Platypus Fishing Lines – Australia’s strongest fishing line since 1898

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.

Oct 2014 Monster Tigers

Monster tigerfish

We had a very good week and the Tiger and Oargee lures worked very well! . We caught this 7.0 kg and 9.1 kg on the Oargee  1 and 3 m redhead. Between 8 of us,  we caught 40 fish but lost big fish and had numerous strikes. Weather changed on the 3rd day and it cooled down from 42 degrees to about 30 Degrees which had impact on the fishing. Most of the other fish were caught on spinning and trolling.  The pearl spinner was dynamite! We tried everything and the pearl was by far the best. The TLS-TIGER  also worked  and I caught 4.5 to 6 kg on this lure and lost even bigger fish.

The 9.1 kg was a monster caught by Seun, it  was his 1st tiger ever! Unbelievable!  I have been  fishing for tiger fish now 20 years and never caught a 20 pounder.  Lucky  the boatsman  helped Seun to land the fish.  You must post this picture on your website!

Wildman Safaris, Monster tigers  on Oargee Lures
Dear Wayne & George
TigerYO90I run wildlife and fishing safaris in Southern Africa and one of our premium tigerfishing safaris happens on the Barotse Floodplains and Lungwebungu River in Western Zambia targeting trophy tigerfish.
I first encountered the Oarsome Oargee 90mm with the 3m bib through a friend – Dan Power – and thought that the lure looked very good but was interested to see its actual performance in the fast currents and the bone hard jaws of tigerfish. I didn’t have to wait long – Dan landing an 11lb tiger spinning off the bank in front of camp on his first morning and the lure hardly looked scratched.
This was impressive considering some of our rapalas which we use, are snapped in 2 pieces after one fish!  Such is the power of the tigerfish!
However, the jury was still out,  as we have had “1 hit wonder lures” before. However, when a client I was guiding produced 2 Oarsome Oargee’s (which we nicknamed “Hot Tiger” and “Pornstar” – turns out they were YO and SPB respectively) that I really saw impressive results.
Starting initially with the SPB – this client received 4 takes for every 1 that his partner got fishing with a rapala floating magnum.He caught tigerfish ranging from trophy fish down to small ones as well as a trophy nembwe (olive bream) and the lure continued to swim well trolled against a quick current and survived a number of savage bites. We used it spinning and the lure dived down to the strike zone depth quickly and had good weight to it for casting. When he eventually lost the SPB, I had no hesitation changing him to the YO which Dan had used and the following day, he landed a 15lb tigerfish on the YO – his personal best.
Needless to say, when the next fish stripped him and snapped the line, everyone was very sad to see the back of the Oargee. I was extremely impressed with these lures in terms of their presentation, swimming action, durability and weight for casting. With Rapala having recently pulled the floating magnum range in Africa, I feel very confident that the Oarsome Oargee range in 90mm will be a potent replacement for Barotseland and we are also going to be trying to get our clients to use them extensively at our Upper Zambezi River tigerfishing lodge, Mutemwa.
Well done guys on an exciting lure.

May 2014 Great results For Oar-gee Lures

 

Oar-Gee Lures are pleased to report a fantastic result on their lures.Earlier this month, the Barra Nationals were run on the Daly River in the Northern Territory.The fishing was reportedly tough going with only 700 or so fish landed by 180 anglers (60 Teams) over the 5 days of competition.Team Fusion consisting of Skipper Michael Dickinson, son Daniel and Scott Partridge were finding the going hard as the tides changed and the fish, to put in Michaels words, went to sleep.

Scott put on the Oarsome 90mm 5mt and started to land fish, by this time all 3 were using the 90mm Oarsome 5mt and bashing the lures very slowly deep into the snags (sticks).The result, Champion Local Team, 3rd overall team and Scott individually 6th not bad out of 180 anglers.

Debbie and Wayne congratulate the team on a wonderful result!!

Read Michaels testimonial on our web site and see the lures they used.
