It was in 1962 that Felix Zak, a life long resident of Tacoma, Washington invented and was granted patents for two products… the Zak Fish and Deer Knife and the Flipgun Hook Remover. In the years since hundreds of thousands of these two products have been produced and distributed around the world. They continue to this day to be two of our flagship products.
Zak Tackle has enjoyed a rich and successful history for nearly fifty years developing many successful lures and product lines. Our current product line is in excess of 2,000 products that cover fresh water fishing, salmon fishing, bottom fishing, steelhead and crabbing and clamming. Our Wally Whale brand is known and revered from Mexico to the far reaches of Alaska as well as many other countries. Our product line also includes several fishing accessory products designed to further fishing success, also marketed under the Wally Whale brand.
We recently developed and patented a unique crab trap named the “Springdoor 360.” This revolutionary design is totally different from any trap on the market. We invite you to watch the video on this website accessed under “Product Demos” to see the uniqueness of this product.
Today, we feel a sense of gratitude and wish to thank those who have embraced our products since 1962 and continue to try our new lures and products as we introduce them to the fishing community. In addition, we feel a sense of responsibility in the present and years to come to repay our success by being active in promoting our sport. We are currently involved in organizations such as The Northwest Sportfishing Industry Association and the Coastal Conservation Association. Both of these organizations are dedicated to promoting sport fishing and the issues that will determine the quality of fishing opportunities our grandchildren will have.
