  B80D Boomerang (Deep)
Championship lure
Our designer used a few handmade 80mm wooden Boomerangs to win the 1987 Australian Inland Fishing Championships. The publicity from that success fueled demand for the Boomerang and enabled Predatek (then Downunder Lures) to establish a reputation for innovative, high performance lure designs.

Classic design
The 80mm Boomerang is now universally recognised as a classic Australian lure.

Walk it over structure
Work it slowly amongst snags for cod and golden perch. Feel the big bib bump into snags and pause......the Boomerang will reverse clear of the obstruction and you can then continue to retrieve.

The Classic Boomerang! When we started making lures in 1986, this was it - the 80mm wooden Boomerang. Today's Boomerang is descended from that successful design. Originally produced for golden perch and Murray cod in impoundments, its depth capabilities have made it popular on a range of species.
