Wellsys Tackle started life as a home based mail order business in 1993 after being established by game fishing enthusiests Paul & Helen Wells.
Paul and Helen's interest (and experience) in game fishing resulted from many years of recreational fishing in the highly productive waters of Papua New Guinea. Paul's interests extended to making reisin head trolling fishing lures and after a chance meeting with a Japanese businessman, he was able to source Yo-zuri octopus trolling skirts which he imported for the local fishing fraternity. Upon return to Australia in the early 90's, Paul and Helen set about turning their hobby into a niche home based business, with a plan to grow, buy a boat and go fishing!
Following years of hard work, as well as the continued ongoing support of valued customers and key suppliers, Wellsys Tackle was able to grow and flourish. Today, the business operates from a commercial premises on Queensland's growing Sunshine Coast, supporting a large number of Game Fishing Clubs nationally and is one of the most recognised brands for supply of quality game, trolling, sport and tournament fishing tackle in Australia.
Paul and Helen remain active within the business in partnership with (son) Jono and assisted by (daughter) Paula and employee Hayley.
Together, our business focus continues to be:
- To source and sell a comprensive range of quality fishing tackle products at competitive prices (We are a "one stop, game & sport fishing tackle shop").
- Our pricing policy is simple - We offer (our best) SALE/DISCOUNTED price, all day, everyday, 365 days per year to EVERYBODY! No "special mates rates" "smoke and mirror discounts" or questionable sales tactics.

If we're promoting the product, we've got it in stock and we'll try and deliver it to your door as quickly and cheaply as possible. If there's a problem, we'll contact you.
