Our story

Most great stories start with a simple idea...


Story about DTD is no different. All started as a passion for sea and fishing. There was a strong belief we can use our own knowledge, quality materials and a lot of work to create quality fishing tackle that will function and what is most important, be effective. Everything started with fish spears and "PELJEŠKE OSTI" is first of many products that will be made. Why fish spears? It's quite simple, squid fishing and spear fishing were our two favorite fishing techniques.

We have kept one piece of that original first product as a reminder and that fish spears are probably the main reason our company is here today. Using knowledge from University of mechanical engineering and own experience from fishing we made really superb product. Idea about company started after we made few pieces for friends and relatives who were fishing the same way as we do. Their reactions were so good and that quality spread around our region.

That was also a moment we realized only with quality product and quality solution you can make a quality business. That remained our main moto. 

After that, new products came one by one and 28 years later, we have 90 employees and 3600 different products.

Quality and catching ability of our products were too good story to be held only in our country Croatia. When you have something good, very soon world recognizes it.

After EFTTEX (European fishing tackle trade exhibition) in Budapest 2008. our story became worldwide story. Although we were selling our products abroad even before 2008. after that world stage presentation it was obvious that we just started.

Today we are member of EFTTA and we are selling our products in more than 40 countries. Proudly we can say our products are present in Spain, France, Egypt, Libya, Russia, South Korea, Australia...

We are doing our best not only to follow, but to set highest standards of quality and thank you all for your advices and proposals that shaped our path in the past.


Looking forward to upcoming years and hope that you enjoy fishing with our products.
