Owner Treble Hooks Weight Chart

This is something that I have found while "googling" around for handmade lures. I have to admit that it is a very valuable chart for those who want to switch between treble hook models or are just curious about sizes and diameters.  I don't know if it is a chart made by Owner Hooks or the "owner" of this Japanese Lure Craft Shop.
Anyway, I am sharing it with you. Enjoy.

Mini Alle's Lures

My friend Alessandro, owner of Alle's Lures has just dropped me an email with a nice photo of his latest creations. After crafting some incredible lures for big fishes he decided to give a try in designing some small popper aimed at smaller fishes, or better, anything that likes eating small: Seabasses, Dorados, breams, bluefish and so on.
They look fabulous and I hope he will put them on sale. They are for now just prototypes ready to be tested.  Make sure you check his official page on a regular basis for the latest news and products.

Very cute small poppers! Love them!

News from Owner Hooks

Be ready with your google translate and follow these links for some news and interesting pages offered by Owner Hooks Japan.

New Treble Hooks: STX-58

This is an interesting new treble hook introduced by Owner. It is, according to the site, a treble with a wire as thick as the ST-56 series but with a %10 better strength. The design and the strength of the hook is designed specifically for the use of PE lines. The slightly inward curved gape is supposed to improve hooking and avoid any break using PE lines. Anyway, this is an interesting product that we will see soon in stores (I hope).

Lots of interesting videos. 

Treble Hooks Fish Record Chart

I put this one here because it is very interesting. Owner has a special section that keeps the record of fishes taken with all the treble Stinger series produced. It is very fun to check, for instance, the ST-36BC hook and see that they managed to catch a 25cm GT with a size 12. Another fun record: 48kg GT (caught in Tokara) with a STBL-66.

Video: Maria Slice

Cool video of the new lure introduced by Maria Japan. A vibration lure that will likely make a good impression in the Japanese Domestic Market.

Check the Slice official page. Very informative page designated for the lure. Lots of info, photos and videos. Too bad it is in Japanese. Nice effort.

DUO Spearhead Ryuki 45S

After being impressed by the DUO Tetra Works Toto42 I have started to research about this other small lure by DUO. I heard and saw nice photos of fishes taken with this Ryuki 45S . It is mostly conceived as a freshwater lure but I know that it is successful in salt environments as well. I found a nice video that shows the lure in action. Enjoy it.
