DUO Spearhead Ryuki in floating model

One of my favorite ultralight lures has just been introduced in floating model. The Ryuki is a trout lure that loves strong currents and I had good results with it. Now DUO has made a floating version which I am sure will be good in saltwater too. The fact that it is floating might help fishing the upper part of the water column and avoid snags during the retrieve. The sinking models likes fast retrieve but maybe the F  model will work well with a slightly slower retrieve.

The floating lure is 2.8gr. compared to the 4.5g of the sinking model.

Also available in 70mm size.

LRF with hard baits. Leon's video got it all

Leon is an colorful and important angler in the light rock fishing scene. You get check many videos on youtube. I wish they were with English subtitles. I am sure we could learn a lot from him.
Anyway here is a video about fishing with hard baits. Leon is delivering as usual some nice action.

Here is a bonus video by Tomu Shimizu. Nice LRF video with some underwater footage.

Ima Japan official facebook page

" We have started this English page to help keep our international audience/fans better informed on our brand of fishing lures".

This is the description in the opening screen the new IMA Japan Facebook page. 

I am happy to see another Japan Lure company opening to the international audience with a English language page. In my opinion is important for these kind of  companies to market their lures in a proper way. These brands have a quite big follower base around the world but sometimes lack of communication gets in the way and we cannot always rely on .jp domains and google translation in order to learn more about their products.

I think from now on we will be able to follow the latest news and photos from this newly opened page. 

Thanks IMA!
