And finally, a look at JDM in-line spinners.
-Palms SpinWalk Clevis 3 gram Spinner in Yellow, Green, Gold and Black
-Daiwa Silver Creek Spinner 4 gram in Silver and Gold
Both of these brands are made in China. From what I can tell, in-line spinners are not popular in Japan because they are considered to be too easy to catch fish with. If you look close, you can see that these come with a swivel built into the wire frame. I haven’t run across that before but its a nice addition. The off-center body is interesting and I’m guessing it acts somewhat like a keel to keep these running straighter and hopefully prevent line twist.
I opted for the heavier gram weight versions because I’ll be fishing some current and also because it’s always windy here in Oklahoma.
The spoons and spinners were purchased from Chris Stewart at http://www.finesse-fishing.com. Chris is an awesome guy and is definitely an asset to the USA based JDM enthusiast. Very knowledgeable and helpful with any questions you may have.
Until next time…stay safe and stay warm!
