So, the most anticipated show of the year is almost here! The JDM fishing tackle aficionados are always waiting for this show to happen. Lots of new and exciting products are going to hit the OSAKA Show and we will be waiting to see some cool picture to surface the net.

In the meanwhile Daiwa has already setup a special page for the show. You can check some new items here!!
One of the new products that caught my attention is this awesome looking Daiwa Saltiga Expedition Reel.  More info here

I wish I could be attending the show this year. I am still expecting to get some nice photos to share with my friends here on my blog.

Ajing with Leon!

İf you like lrf and ajing you should have heard of Leon before. This guy is a real deal when it comes to fishing for aji with ultralight tackle. Sponsored by Breaden, Leon is always on the water with his hat searching for the next Aji to catch with soft or hardbait. He is definitely a colorful character.

You can get more info from his blog here.

Check some of his videos :

Hitler's reaction to LRF

Very hilarious video posted on facebook by The Art of Fishing (which is by the way a very good LRF tackle store).
The video has been subtitled many times for different parodies. This time Hitler gives an hilarious reaction to the rise of LRF in the world. Credit to Reuben Manicom Smith (http://specieshunt.weebly.com/)  for this funny video.
