Tasmanian Devil as bait is a plastic tube with a core through which steel wire is threaded. At one end of the wire is attached a hook, and on the other a loop for swiveling or fastening.

Founder of Wigston’s Lures

In 1934, in the city of New Norfolk, on the Derwent River, 22 km from the capital of Tasmania, Hobart, Eddie Wigston founded a retail store. He sold radios, hunting weapons and fishing gear. And what else to do in such a picturesque place?

To be fair, it should be noted that the Derwent River was famous for its fishing for one of the salmon representatives. Trout fishing is the main hobby of local fishermen. Which later influenced Eddie Wingston.

The first idea of ​​baits Tasmanian devil

Eddie joins his two sons – Jan and Garth. Together, during the 60-ies, they experiment and produce for themselves all sorts of baits and gear. As long as for yourself, but it lays the foundation for a great idea.

Somehow, in one of the warm Tasmanian evenings, a glass of beer in a local bar creates a concept of mass production of baits. The decision of the Wigstons to go into mass production pushed successful home experiments with baits.

The first production of the Tasmanian Devil

By the end of 1979, the production of the Tasmanian Devil’s spoon-baits had begun. The vigstons tenderly called them “Tassi”, because it was their creation. The concept of bait has not changed to this day. A hollow tube, a wire through it, wings on each side, a variegated palette.

The first versions of the Tasmanian devils were quickly purchased by local fishermen for trout fishing. The volume was not large, baits were made by hand. It was decided to develop equipment to increase volumes.

Export of the Tasmanian Devil

Since 1984, “Tassi” is exported. The first fishermen who could buy the Tasmanian devil in their country were residents of New Zealand. Fishing for trout is one of the favorite sports activities for fishermen in this country. As, indeed, the whole world.

Thanks to fishing, and fishing for trout in particular, the Tasmanian devil conquers more and more new countries. To date, the Tasmanian devil is officially available in 35 countries.

New in the line of Wigston’s Lures

Until 1979, there was only one weight of bait – 13.5 g. But by this year, the Wigstones are allowed in a series of three sizes – 7 g, 20 g, 26 g. As for the entire model range, the combination of colors and weights allowed to increase the line of spoon-bait Tasmanian devil up to 100 combinations, covering all possible needs.

In 1998, the 20-gram Tasmanian devil comes out with a double penetration. And most recently was released “salty” Tasmanian devil – a bait for sea fishing. It has 4 colors and two types of sizes.
