The Must Have Lure of 2018

Following on from three years of hugely successful Recfishwest Limited Edition Membership Lures, 12-year-old Tayla Andrew from Stratham (near Bunbury), has designed our 2018 Limited Edition lure, called the ‘Soarer 2000.’

In partnership with local WA lure and tackle specialists Halco, Recfishwest gave kids at the 2017 Perth International Boat Show the chance to design Recfishwest’s 2018 Limited Edition Lure and become fishing famous.

A keen fisher with an eye for lure design, young Tayla designed the Limited Edition lure with the aim of catching a Salmon or Tailor from her local beach near Bunbury. The Roosta Popper design is a blend of orange and gold with a hot pink cup at the front of the lure. This is the first year the Recfishwest Limited Edition lure is not a Laser Pro, with the new Roosta Popper providing different fishing experiences for species such as Trevally, Queenfish, Tailor and Salmon.

We’ve now seen four Limited Edition lures come from the fishers of tomorrow with 5-year-old Sarah, twins Dean and Rylee, age 10, 12-year-old Luke and now 12 year old Tayla bringing the Members of Recfishwest a lure you can’t get anywhere else in the world!!

So, how do you get your hands on one?

We have been bringing you the best, most up to date information on all issues affecting your fishing in WA for many years now. You would have read our monthly Broad Cast (with over 70 editions published), our weekly Fishing Reports plus seen various ‘Breaking News’ stories where we’ve battled to make fishing better for all West Aussies.

It’s our job to represent you and the fishing community of WA to ensure you have safe, accessible, sustainable and enjoyable fishing experiences.
