This story is what dreams are made of and I feel privileged to know I played a very small part in making them come true for this angler. This is Koichi Tokuyama's story.....
I flew over to Australia just for fishing journey.
I had a dream of catching three species of fish while I stay here which are Saratoga, at least 120cm Barramundi and a metre plus Murray Cod.
I was living in Townsville for the first ten months, so I managed to catch first two species pretty easily.
But as I was working there, I couldn’t make time to chase the last target.
In October, I finished my job in Townsville and decided to go catch the Cod.
(The distance between Townsville and Copeton Dam near Inverell NSW is 1,562kms by road or 16hours 52mins according to Google Maps)
I had twelve days challenge at Copeton Dam.
But it was really tough fishing there.
I caught one very small cod on my 10th day but nothing else and that made me nearly give up.
Finally, on my 7th cast a 116cm Murray Cod took the Old Dog Jew Dog in the Banana colour.
I managed to achieve my goal in Australia.
I really, really appreciate for such a great lure and my friend Mike.
That was one of the best day ever in my life.
This Murray Cod qualified Koichi for the Old Dog Lures Honour Board see the Honour Board.
"I’m really really happy to see me on one of the best Aussie lure brand website! Koichi
