History of Juro Ozpro Tackle / R.F. McLaughlin Pty Ltd
Juro Oz Pro Tackle / RF McLaughlin is an Australian owned business that has been involved in the fishing industry since 1946 and in the fishing tackle industry since 1970. We are one of the few large Australian fishing tackle wholesalers to remain a Wholly Owned Australian Company.
Over the years we have searched Australia and the World for fishing products that are of a high quality at an affordable price. Every product we sell has been carefully selected and tested by our Juro Oz Pro Test Team for quality, reliability and performance under Australian fishing conditions.
Juro Oz Pro Tackle is a market leader when it comes to new products and innovations. We were the first company to release a 'nibble-tip' style of rod on to the Australian market. We were also responsible, through our long association with Daiichi Hooks in Japan, for introducing to the World the first ever Red Coloured Chemically Sharpened hooks and Saltwater Series hooks, an event that changed the face of hook making across the entire globe!
Our role as Australian agents for TiCA Everwinner Tackle has seen us take on a hands-on approach to rod and reel development. Many TiCA threadlines now feature the patented TiCA Power Handle that we helped to develop, as well as great new features such as the TiCA Cybernetic Frame System, and the TiCA Intelligent Oscillation System. The Australian range of TiCA RODS have been specially developed in conjunction with the Juro Oz Pro Test Team to perform under the unique conditions of the Australian fishing scene.
Also, in conjunction with the Strike Pro Lure Company, Strike Pro Australasia has now been formalised and Juro Oz Pro Tackle will now represent Strike Pro Products throughout Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and other Pacific regions. This, together with a 52% growth globally for Strike Pro, shows a very exciting time ahead indeed!
