Got the Japanese Lure Bible last time I was in Japan bowsmilie

Has 3500 Hbs 700 spinners and couple of thousand Sps, it's as thick as a Bible, is in Japanese but the pictures are so pretty.

The handcrafted lures in Japan are premium and the prices are premium as well which is in stark contrast to Aussie handcrafted lures

I guess the problem is, that new lures and new colours are constantly coming out, so by the time the book goes to print, it's already out of date.

Dan I'm planning a trip up there hopefully in a few months to meet with ZipBaits and visit their factory, will get one for you if you like?

Yes mate $100 and have seen them up to $250 you dont see these on the racks they're under a glass counter that's locked.

Here's something that might interest you did see the good old Rio Prawn in a shop in Japan. Exporting Aussie Lures to Japan anyone thought of that?
