Welcome to Poddy Bay Custom Duck Calls. 

At Poddy Bay I hand make custom duck calls for the main species of game waterfowl in Australia, the Pacific Black Duck and the Chestnut Teal & Grey Teal.  The Black Duck call works equally well on Mallards and I have used these calls with great success on Mallards in the USA, Canada and New Zealand. All calls are individually made by me from a variety of Australian grown timbers.

The calls are fitted with a polished brass band that has been glued and secured with copper pins. I have a laser engraving machine and can personalise your call with your name, logo or an inscription for a small fee.

All custom 'Classic' timber calls come with a camouflaged lanyard included and are packaged in a clear lidded presentation box that makes the perfect gift for the hunter who has everything.

Swamp Master Timber

Available for the 2019 duck season is the Poddy Bay 'Swamp Master Timber' call. The Swamp Master Timber marries the loud, long range Swamp Master clear insert with the traditional look of the 'Classic' timber barrel. The 'Swamp Master Timber' is hand-made only from local Gippsland Red Gum timber and has the distinctive laser engraved Poddy Bay 'Ducks & Reeds' logo.

The 'Swamp Master Timber' is priced at $95.
