Rapala Spotted Dog

LIMITED STOCK It’s BACK ! - Rapala’s “Spotted Dog” was first made famous in the mid-to-late 80’s by Rapala’s Head of International Export, Erkki Norell, as a superb trout & native freshwater lure colouration; however due the complexity of this pattern, supply was limited and as a result it was common to see avid anglers painting their own Rapala lures, Spotted-Dog-style.

OUT NOW! New Fishing Tasmania Annual Magazine

Fishing Tasmania is the ultimate Tasmanian fishing guide! It is a quality magazine that comes wrapped with a FREE informative DVD titled "How to catch Bream on lures', plus a FREE Fishing Tasmania sticker.
It retails for $10.95 and is available in newsagents throughout Australia and selected fishing tackle stores in Tasmania.
The purpose of the magazine is to attract increased participation in fishing in Tasmania for the future sustainability of the fishery. Fisheries management is funded primarily through angling license sales, so the more people that buy licenses and fishing gear, the better it is for all. We encourage you to seek out a copy of Fishing Tasmania Annual and show your support by displaying the free sticker on your car or boat.
