Tillin’s Cobras have been manufactured in Tasmania since the 1950s. Tillin’s produce three different types of trout lure” the Cobra (5cm), the King Cobra (6cm), and the slightly larger Cobra (8cm) which is mostly fished as a trolling lure behind a boat.
The 8cm Tillin’s Cobra is commonly used by Fisho’s up-river as a salmon lure, especially pink Cobras!
The Tillin’s Cobra is made from high impact plastic, with aqua foil wings, which give the lure that very enticing stop-start swimming. Tillin’s Cobras are the only aqua foil lures of their kind that are made complete with eyes. Many Fisho’s believe that the eyes are a very important feature because the eyes help to trigger a strike from hungry predatory trout!
Great tip: When trolling Tillin’s Cobras, replace the hook with a brightly coloured fly!
