Game Reels

Australia’s deep sea game fishing opportunities are the envy of bluewater anglers the world over. While the Cairns heavy tackle black marlin fishing scene grabs most of the international headlines, we are also blessed with a diverse range of smaller species to target, from yellowtail kingfish to yellowfin tuna. And of course, sharks. Australia is home to nearly all the game shark species, some of which top the thousand pound mark in weight.

Now if you want to tackle these mighty game fish, you need equipment that is synonymous with reliability and performance, and that’s Shimano. Shimano’s Tiagra game reels have been the benchmark for lever drag game reel performance for over a decade now. Light tackle anglers are also well serviced by Shimano’s smaller Tiagras for trolling and drifting, and of course there’s the Talica, Torsa, and TLD series, which are perfectly suited to those who get their kicks from the challenges of big fish on lighter lines, or going in hard with braid.

Tiagra

Ever since their 1994 release, Tiagras have been the number one choice for bluewater anglers. Available in nine sizes, there’s no game species that can’t be handled by these powerhouse lever drags.
