Pikewallisfriluftliv A/S og Duo International kryper nordover i Norge.
Karl Mattis Nyheim sto det på mailen vi fikk her en dag. Vi ønsker å kjøpe Duo av dere sto det videre. Ja vel tenkte jeg å tok opp telefonen og ringte opp. En hyggelig kar ved navn Karl Mattis svarte. Det ble en hyggelig prat, og nå setter vi i gang. Herlig med en butikk så langt nord, spesielt i forhold til sortiment valget. Litt andre ting i tillegg til det det går mye av her nede ønsket de.
Forsto kjapt at sjøørretfiske var hett der oppe og det ble snakk om fisk opp til 80cm. Ikke rart Tide Minnow serien er ønsket der oppe da. Dette er high end wobblere som må være magisk til fiske der oppe. Og sjøfiske er stort og det er jo mange flotte røye og ørretvann. Ikke så mye abbor 😉
Her er modellene som i løpet av våren vil inta Nordreisa Kommune på Storslett. De vil komme i flere farger.
A seabass and seatrout lure’s castability does not only give a great advantage to the angler, but is also an important factor for keeping up his motivation. The Tide-Minnow SLD series was developed as a slim-type, long distance model, with castability as the top priority. It is a basic model that can be used in a wide range of locales (surf, estuaries, off the rocks, etc). It features a ‘wobble and roll’ action with a pleasant feel. It is able to catch the small-scale flows in the current, even when retrieved slowly. With its great castability, it is the perfect entry model.
Based on feedback from scores of anglers, we have fine-tuned this model for superb performance under very specific conditions. The excellent specific performance of the Tide-Minnow Advance Line comes at a slight cost to certain other performance characteristics.
The Flyer 140 is a sinking model created based on the Tide-Minnow Slim 140 with special attention paid to its casting capabilities. By adapting the action response from the sophisticated original model, we have created a top of the line lure. Not only does the overwhelming castability give the angler an advantage in strong winds and the ability to explore hard to reach areas, but it is also a great entry model for beginners who are learning to cast.
The original 175SP gave anglers a much needed suspending model from the Tide Minnow range of lures. This led to the development of the 140SP. The strengths of the larger 175SP have been combined into a smaller package allowing anglers to target fish that they would not get with the larger model. The lure will sit quietly in the water until a jerk releases its enticing moves to get a quick bite! While the 140SP performs well in many water conditions, it has been developed for optimum performance in the high salinity of the Mediterranean area.
Et arsenal av wobblere, synk, suspending og flyt. Fantastiske og trolle og spinnfiske med. Skal bli veldig spennende å følge med på hvordan disse gjør det der oppe. Vi fikk jo en invitasjon om å komme opp i Mai/juni 🙂
Sjøfiske fra land var også mange som holdt på med. Og det er Duo gode ikke bare på wobbler fronten med også på metal. Her er litt av det som går oppover nå.
A new way with a high pitch Wedge!
The original Wedge 120S is a voluminous pencil lure with a relaxed swing. What anglers needed was one more Wedge that would awaken new potential targets!
With a shorter body, the 95S maintains a voluminous design and appeal of the Wedge, while at the same time adopting a two hook design that allows better performance in the shorter body. The shorter body design enables a high pitched roll and shimmering.
The dynamic shimmering and roll action of the Wedge 95S is designed to stimulate reactions and bites from less responsive targets. For target fish that do not respond to standard tactics, the Wedge 95S gives the angler a useful attention grabbing tool to get them motivated!
A jig minnow mimicking thin bait-fish 17,5 cm og 50gram
The Press Bait Saira is a slim and long-bodied jig minnow created to mimic the thin, long bait-fish sought by Tuna and other large migratory fish species. It has a unique body design, with sufficient strength and weight for use with heavy tackle. This lure has allowed new tactics for anglers fishing on or offshore.
*A very small quantity of water tends to seep into the body through the internal wire system of this product. Please rinse thoroughly in water after each use.
The Press Bait Fusion is a lure with castability rivaling a metal jig, a ‘spoon-like’ swimming action and a realistic look difficult to achieve with metal construction. Heavy weight and rear-heavy balance gives this lure a great carry distance and quick sinking speed. During retrieval, it swims swinging its tail side-to-side with the line-eye as the pivot.
The Press Bait Fusion 90 has sufficient weight so that the angler can fish a wide range of depth using both the ‘bottom drifting’ technique or simply retrieving. It attracts a wide variety of species on or offshore.
*A very small quantity of water tends to seep into the body through the internal wire system of this product. Please rinse thoroughly in water after each use.

The back weighted jig swimmer that will fly!
A minnow shaped jig was needed, one that could be thrown far and used easily by anyone. High appeal flashing was also a necessity for this new type of jig.
The Plate Jig has a thin plate that forms the front part of the lure and is attached to the main body/weight. The weight of the body was positioned at the back of the lure to increase casting performance. The thin plate at the front is made for effective flashing and improved swimming performance. The Plate Jig will swim vigorously when retrieved with a highly appealing irregular action.
It is recommended to use the snap that is provided for easy operation. The 15g and 20g models are best for shallow areas and are applicable to a wide rage of SW target fish. The larger 30g and 40g are great for seabass, flounder, flatheads, and many other fast SW game fish. The Plate Jig is designed to be a high appeal lure that works with a simple cast and retrieve. The colour range consists of high flash colors with a wide application while the matte colors are better for lower light times of the day around dusk.
A heavy-duty, high response lure
The Press Bait Heavy Duty Series possesses a ‘level fall’ (sinking horizontally) and a natural swimming response. It also has the strength to withstand the brunt of repeated attacks by large migratory fish species. The body strength is due to the semi-solid, internal wire structure, which we managed to combine with a positive action response – indeed a difficult-to-realize combination.
The 125mm is most productive for Tuna feeding on small sardines. It is equipped with sufficient weight for use with heavy tackle as well.

A revolutionary concept of a diving pencil
Rough Trail Aomasa was put to life through the integration of DUO’s world class injection molding technology and the know-how from the most respected local anglers Jerremy Akiyama (Amakusa) and Masashi Matsumoto (Hirado).Its weight settings, wire-through design, interior rib structure and its unique body design rivals or surpasses those wood body models with its sharp action, controlability and body strength. This lure can easily be controlled to stage its “diving”, “S-curve” and “sliding” action by novice ~ expert anglers in various field conditions.
A beast on the surface to get the beast in the water
First there was the Hydra 220. Now comes the 175. Compared to the 220 with its three balls, the 175 has two steel weights in its back end. In a smaller package it offers the same streamlined body that reacts quickly to the smallest jerk and the same small head/neck design for enticing movement on the surface. Watch it perform a dynamic skipping action during a fast retrieve and see its energetic jumps during a twitch retrieve. Walk the dog if you need to. Try its full range of moves to get those fish feeding on the surface.

In addition to the high castability, the controllability of the Drag Metal series have proven to the world its grand potential. Now a slim type is ready for release!!
With its center balance design, we have reduced the drag against the jig allowing for an agile slow to high-pitch action with your rod work. Its swimming performance is stable, stress-free and lively.
The powerful flashing from the jerk of the rod and its brief moment for the bite during its fall is brilliant. Anglers from around the globe will be able to enjoy this lure to target a vast array of species from the breakwater, rocks, beaches, estuaries and off-shore.

Zinc revolution in Drag Metal series!
Drag Metal Superslim is the first model in the Drag series to be made out of zinc. Because of its slim silhouette, it has an excellent castability, the rear centered weight gives it an attractive falling position, when many bites occur. After the cast and starting the retrieve, the jig slowly rises to the surface alluringly attracting the fish to follow.
The SSZ has a top coat with high adhesion paint and a strong paint film to improve coating strength. The treble hooks as well as the assist hooks also have a high-performance anti-rust coating. The high hooking and high anti-rust performance make the SSZ an essential item.
CONSISTENT CASTING DISTANCE
This is the model designed especially for shore casting. With its super slim body and minimal air resistance it is possible for anyone to do a beautiful long cast.
EXCELLENT EASE OF EASE
With its light weight zinc body, it can easily float up to the surface when you need it to. The slow enchanting movement of the SSZ has a power that will attract the target that you want!
ZINC ALLOY BODY
The hard zinc alloy allows for a super slim body that is perfect for targets which require a slimmer model lure.

Do the fall, see the flash, feel the Force!
This jig concept was born from the need for a jig to move with an effective flashing effect. With this purpose in mind, the Drag Metal Force was developed to enact a falling action with highly alluring flashing effect.
The key design element of the Force is the asymmetrical design of its body. One side is flat while the other side is convex, allowing the lure to enact an alluring falling action with the convex side down. The angular design of the convex side gives it the enhanced flashing effect that will bring the bites you need. Despite the asymmetry of the body shape, the lure is designed to maintain perfect balance during straight retrieves thanks to its relatively long and thin design.
The shape of the lure makes it easy to maintain a horizontal position. A straight retrieve will also make an alluring movement with the tail making an inviting dancing action as it moves through the water. Letting the Force fall, followed by a quick retrieve will get you bites. A straight retrieve is also easy and effective, providing that a mixture of fast and slow speeds are used without fully stopping the lure. The lure will maintain position, even at low retrieval speeds. A quick rod action makes the lure move in a crisp and dancing manner. It is the Force because it has the power to attract fish and make them bite. It will attract big ones, it will get you even small ones too. Use the Force and you will get the target you need.
Jerkbait er uten tvil ønsket i nord og det er skit kult. Realis har mange flotte varianter og disse under her vil etter hvert ta turen oppover. Her kommer det flere varianter i lengde på realis jerkbait og realis Rozante kommer i to modeller og i den største også i saltvann.
Her er to snutter men litt herlige måter å fiske jerkbait på.
Heavy sinking minnow optimized for surf fishing
The second collaboration with Mr. Mitsuta Hotta is the heavy sinking Fulcrum which is the successor of the already released Axcion. The heavy weight settings allows the lure to rocket through the air while the Bevel lip design assists the lure to grab the water. Anglers will be able to trace and maintain their target depth with this lure and feel the lure gripping the water while swimming along.?
It is equipped with a strong rolling with an irregular flashing action which stimulates the Flounders feeding instincts. The strong action not only efficiently seeks the actively feeding Flounders, but its cast ability and fast sinking characteristics will also help anglers master the rip currents, deep surfs, off-shore break lines and under water structures. It will also perform to your expectations in the roughest of conditions with high seas and strong head winds.

Double impact of prop and blade
While the characteristic prop and blade generate wave motion, another unique feature of Afraid is the
ability to methodically approach the target via slow retrieve.The finessed rolling action further stimulates the predators and imitates an easy prey.
Fishing with the pro-tuned Spinbait 80 G-Fix is like Spybaiting on steroids!
Realis Spinbait, the only true spybait designed for tournament fishing, comes in a new G-Fix pro-tune.
Pro-tuned and perfected for the baitcaster, Realis Spinbait 80 G-Fix stays unmatched and unchallenged in the Spybaiting category.
G-Fix`s increased performance and unique signatured action is able to meet windy tournament conditions head on. With the same ultra finesse profile, the spybait is able to effectively trace contours others can’t.
Many professional bass anglers are well aware that the Spinbait 80 simply outcasts every spybait to hit the US shores and the same is true in Japan. What many didn’t realize was that the new Spinbait 80 G-Fix have even a greater trajectory. How far? While most popular spybaits hit the averaged casting distance between 80 to 95 feet in a single cast. The Spinbait 80 G-Fix averaged 130 ft. or (39 meters) ! In some cases the Spinbait G-Fix casted over 40 feet more that several spybaits!
Realis Spinbait 80 G-Fix is absolutely the best spybait to reach deeper bass or further targets and the only spybait to stay in deep zones longer and more accurately. With the additional weight producing even greater distance, it remains the only spybait designed for professional angling.
The new top dog in the pack, the small Alpha goes the distance!
The Spinbait 62 Alpha was a long-awaited lure in the Spinbait range that gives the finesse angler a deadly new weapon. With the Alpha 62, DUO pushes lure development and challenges innovation as we know it. This is an extremely compact Spybait with amazing action and a distinct ability to hit its target at great distances. Expectations were high during the development of this refined lure that went through a battery of tests to meet the stringent requirement for this new lure.
The little dog proved more than worthy for stringent finesse angling after going through the rigorous testing protocol. From profile and size to weight and action, the new Alpha.62 will provide the finesse angler a refreshing display of a lure literally emulating a baby shad. Your ability to increase your spybaiting skills beyond previous expectations has become a reality. The Alpha 62 will cast a mile and trace with the tightest profile in the deepest way!
Give it your 100% in the Spybaiting game!
The Realis SPINBAIT is the vehicle for Spybaiting, one of the fastest growing finesse techniques in fishing. And the Realis SPINBAIT 100 is DUO`s largest vehicle in the range. Imitating mature bait fish, this bait was created for bait casting anglers. The SPINBAIT 100 gives unmatched casting distance and superior trajectory in its class. The 100 model combines the aerodynamic and hydrodynamic design of the original Spinbait into a larger heavier lure that will widen the field and species that anglers target. The increased and taller profile will provide additional flashing effect that works together with the trademark rolling action of the Spinbait series. The sturdy body construction gives this lure the durability it needs to sustain repeated hits from larger predatory fish. The SPINBAIT 100 is one more Spybaiting tool that you need in your lure box!
The king of trout
Utrolig gøy å kunne skrive en slik sak. Nå blir det som alltid å bygge stein for stein i sammen med butikken fremover. Prøve oss frem og finne ut hvilket sortiment er det som passer Karl Mattis og sin gjeng der oppe i nord.
Det som er så gøy er entusiasmen, disse som tar kontakt er gira og vil være med å utvikle, de vil teste de, de ser rett og slett en verdi i å legge ned litt tid i dette.
På siste mailen fra Karl Mattis kan man lese
Jeg gleder meg som en unge, her skal testes umiddelbart etter ankomst.
