Hooker Fishing |  About Us

Murray Lyon ( Muzz ) has been a life-long fishing fanatic. Starting out his working life in the late 70's as a commercial fisherman, long lining out of The Bay of Islands, a world renowned fishing mecca, he cemented his love for fishing.

After leaving the commercial fishing industry Murray has deckied and skippered on a number of game boats where his passion for game fishing became an obsession!
About Us
ABOUT US 2 It was this obsession for fishing that led to him manufacturing the legendary "Hooker Lures". In addition to creating and supplying a wide range of Hooker Fishing Tackle products. Most days Murray can be found in his Bay of Islands based workshop. However, when he is not entrenched in his workshop he is out fishing, dreaming fishing or talking fishing.


Hooker Lures have aided anglers and skippers to catch many game fish throughout the world's "hotspots", culminating in numerous tournament wins both here in NZ and internationally including Hawaii, Cabo - Mexico, Aussie, Tonga, Nuie, Papua New Guinea and South Africa. (And these are just the ones we know of !!)
