The Williams Wabler is the lure that founded the fishing tackle division of the Williams Company over 90 years ago.

Originally popular as a lake trout spoon, the Wabler has proven itself, as the photo gallery of past literature will attest to, on a multitude of species including; rainbows, browns and all members of the trout family. A northern pike favourite, musky, walleye and salmon as well as salt water species in coastal waters.

Time tested and proven, a true Canadian classic with world wide recognition.
