Queensland Fishing Tackle

Queensland Fishing Tackle was owned by Harry Randal from 1955 until the late 1960’s. Harry made all the metal components, the Bakelite spools were sub-contracted out to Queensland Plastics using Q.F.T dies. George McPherson, owner of Platypus Fishing Lines, bought the dyes off of Harry Randal and produced a few 3½’’ and 5’’ fishing reels which were sold under the Platypus brand.
