BERKLEY POWERBAIT RIPPLESHAD - new colours
The Berkley Powerbait Ripple Shad features a sleek profile complete with extremely life-like details, including 3D eyes and compelling coloring. The ribs or ripples extending all the way to the bait's tail set it apart from other similar baits on the market, creating additional water disturbance and vibration as well as a larger surface area for the PowerBait scent to work its magic.

Anglers of all levels looking to learn a thing or two about sport and game fishing techniques will be interested in a series of seminars presented by owner of Pakula Tackle Australia, and renowned game angler Peter Pakula.
Pakula Tackle was established as a full time business in 1987, though Peter Pakula has been making lures and inventing now commonplace game fishing components such as the Shackle Rig, 60 degree hook offsets and Witchdoctor Teasers since the early 70’s. In that time Pakula Lures and products have achieved some astronomical results with over 1,000 World Records, Australian Records, tournament wins, and trophies combined.
Ever wanted to design a lure pattern… and actually have it manufactured? Well now is your chance!
To celebrate reaching over 30,000 Facebook fans, Rapala VMC Australia has launched a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for one lucky fan to have their ideas manufactured by the international Rapala lure factory; the same factory that has been manufacturing Rapala lures since 1936.
There are some great prizes on offer!
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.
