About Tacspo

Proudly family owned and operated for over 75 years.

Our early beginnings

Originally founded by Howard B Lucas in 1945 as HB Lucas, the company speciliased in selling Australian made rods and reels to Queensland based brick and mortar stores. Over the next 25 years the range expanded to include a large range of fishing equipment.

The company was sold to Alan Corrie in 1969. During his time at the helm, Alan created a quality staple of bluewater lures and accessories, in keeping with his passion for offshore fishing.

Transforming into the modern "Tacspo".

In 1983, Alan’s son Alexander ‘Sandy’ Corrie bought the company and grew the range to include a variety of well-known brands in the global tackle industry. He also implemented a name change becoming what we know it as today - Tacspo - short for ‘tackle and sport’, to reflect the company’s more comprehensive product range.

Sandy’s son Alex Corrie joined the company as warehouse manager in 2005, and he has since worked his way up to become General Manager. Alex now oversees a majority of the overall operations of the company while Sandy has taken a step back, spending time at his farm in northern New South Wales and enjoying the delight that comes with being a grandad.

Today Tacspo’s customer base includes buying groups and independent tackle and outdoors stores all around Australia. The company also exports a select range of product to various countries around the world. Our search for high quality products and expansion of existing brands continues 70 years on and every product in the Tacspo range is scrutinised to ensure it stands up to our harsh Australian conditions and punishing fishing methods.
