Hi Froggy

Doesn't seem that you are getting much help mate.

Not nice "Albert"....... but very true.

@ Froggy , when I was buying ABU reels , I found a lot more on European & English ebay sites. Maybe Jas is on the right track.

In my defence, I think it was the hour of day well, maybe a little blondness thumbsupsmilie .

But yes Japanese websites would be a good start.

That was my first thought too Jas lol lol

I`m not very good at tracking stuff down on the net, so I`m of no help here crazysmilie crazysmilie

Froggy, I can understand your interest. Some of the work in Japan is incredible. Photo`s just don`t do them justice. I recently walked into a small shop in a tiny mountain village in Japan, where an old fella was still making cane rods. In the last spot you would think to look, there were the most beautifully made & finished cane rods I have ever seen. Not only did he know how to make them, he also knew how to charge for them, lol lol
Regards.....Vince.

Hi Froggy, in a previous life I always went to Johshuya in Tokyo and over the years have brought back more Japanese lures than I could ever fish with - they literally have thousands of different models on display. They do have a website but you may be struggling with it other than looking at the pictures lol

www.johshuya.co.jp

Once you become a member you also get nice discounts. Just inside the front door is a sealed counter with the most amazing selection of hand made Japanese lures that you could imagine - these are what you may be looking for thumbsupsmilie
Cheers Rob
