The main focus of this website is on Australian lures and some of the more common USA made fishing lures. However there are a few major manufacturers of note like Hardy (UK),  ABU (Sweden), D.A.M (West Germany), Rapala and Nilsmaster (Finland) that made lures as well as many other angling products including reels, rods and terminal tackle which are collectable in their own right. Lure makers are listed alphabetical by manufacturers name with a short biography or historical note.
