Allan Christensen, the developer of the Westin Platypus had a terrific day on the lake this weekend. With 16 pike in the boat, where the 13 were taken at the Westin Platypus. The number of the day was: 6 pike over 6 kg with the maximum of 8.7 kg at the top reveals a great predator wobbler has seen the light! Allan’s technique was traditionally spin fishing.
The story behind the Platypus The Platypus Project was a tough assignment for the Scandinavian lure maker Allan Christensen. We wanted to keep it all secret and we didn’t even have a name for the lure – only a list of impossible demands, including a lot of X-factor and the best rolling movement ever seen on a lure! When we saw the look of the final prototype the name was obvious due to the resemblance of the beak on a real platypus.
“It took me 32 different proto types and countless hours of testing and adjusting to achieve what I was looking for. The result is a unique lure with an incredible action and swimming pattern – even when fished at extreme slow speed for tricky pike during the coldest part of spring. When fished at high speed the action of the lure is just as incredible. I have no doubt that this will become a classic big fish lure in the future. Tight Lines”!
