Saltwater terminal tackle specialist Cox & Rawle has re-launched the brand in Ireland through wholesaler Shamrock Fishing Tackle and the sponsorship of Osprey 2, a thirty-three foot PROFisherman 33 skippered by Cork-based international master angler Pat Condon.
Having Pat Condon in the Cox & Rawle ProTeam adds a wealth of experience and product development possibilities and will accelerate the introduction of deep water products targeted at Shark and Tuna fishing. “I have used Cox & Rawle Hooks for many years now, so see them as a trusted and reliable part of our fishing trips. It is good for us to be able to develop some really top drawer shark rigs ready for the new season” stated Condon from the deck of Osprey 2.
The timing coincides with the relaunch of Cox & Rawle’s Premium Rig range and marks the start of a new era at the company.
Most of the component parts of the new rig range are manufactured in England on Cox & Rawle’s own unique tools and dies and are tied in their facilities in Wincanton, Somerset. Other components and clips are subcontracted out to other UK sources so that we can keep the local content high and maintain the high levels of quality that both fisherman and C&R have come to expect.“Most mass produced rigs retail for less than the price of a cup of tea, so I’m really not sure what fishermen expect to get when they open the packet” said Mark Hamnett, Cox & Rawle’s new owner “we are producing rigs in England from top quality materials and components on our signature hooks and marketing them at competitive prices.”
In the UK and Ireland, Cox & Rawle products are available through appointed wholesalers, Shamrock Fishing Tackle, Kiddy, W B Clarke, Pisces and Phoenix.
