TACKLE Tactics is proud to announce it has acquired iconic Australian brand Platypus Fishing Lines.
Platypus products have been proudly Australian made and owned for over 120 years and it is Tackle Tactics’ intention to carry on this tradition of manufacturing these quality products in Australia.
Platypus Fishing was started by George Ross, a Scottish rope maker, in 1898. The business thrived as it was passed down through four generations of the McPherson family, with Stewart McPherson managing the business in recent years. Stewart will continue to work with TT as a consultant to ensure the transition is seamless.
Everyone involved is excited about the acquisition, which includes good levels of current stock lines, raw materials and production equipment, along with a selection of key team members that have decades of experience with both the products and the manufacturing process.
TT would like to thank everyone for their ongoing support of this iconic Australian brand and the company looks forward to continuing to supply anglers with a selection of quality, trusted fishing lines. Platypus joins Tackle Tactics’ stable of highly regarded and popular brands including TT Lures, Z-Man, Okuma, Mepps, Fish Inc., Pro-Cure, Bagley and more.
Distribution of Platypus products through Tackle Tactics will commence from April 1, 2019.
