What you like about DUO lures: First, the castability, being able to punch a lure into strong wind gives me the ability to reach the spots where fish are holding regardless of the conditions. To add to that the action, durability and finish of DUO lures are second to none giving me a strong advantage when targeting large fish in pressured waterways.

When did you start fishing: I began my obsession for fishing at a very young age, my father used to caretake an island off the central coast of QLD when I was 2 years old, we would fish the ocean and creek everyday for food and sport using a variety of methods. I spent a few years on the island with my dad and ever since I’ve had an insatiable obsession for being on the water.

Dream place for fishing: PNG for Black bass or the Amazon for Peacock bass

Fang Ops’ own ”barramundi ambassador”, Mick Hassett, is already known to DUO fans via his pro staff position and heavy utilization of our lure range taking great advantage of Australia abundant water species. The “metrey magnet” will be helping to test the Fang lures on some of the most aggressive fish out there and surely give their claim of being heavy duty a proper workout.
