Take a look at these new releases from Japan’s premier high-end tackle manufacturer.
They certainly know how to make their fishing gear look good.
And I’m a sucker for good looking fish tackle.
Want to see a rock show where they weigh bass then check this video out.
Chris Lane gets rained on as the confetti falls and the crowd goes wild. Who wouldn’t he just won $500,000. What’s not to get excited about.
They certainly know how to take it to the next level in the states.
This time next week we’ll know who the 2012 Bassmaster Classic Champ is. This year it’s on the Red River, the scene of Skeet Reese’s maiden classic win a few years ago. The guy who finished second to him was Mike Iaconelli, here’s a clip about how he feels and his preparation leading into the Classic. I’ll post some more stuff on The Classic this week.
Also make sure you check out the Japanese kids getting into the action in the kids entertainment area at the retail section of the show.
It was great to see how they got the children and women into the show. For me it shows a broader thinking than just blokes, beer, and fishin’.
And that rocks!
The show itself was mindblowing, the company on the trip was great, the tackle stores awe inspiring and the five hours or bass fishing that i got to do was kick arse.
Anyway enough of the hype, here’s the first selection of some of the pics that I took over the three days of the show.
There will be a full feature in the April issue of the Fishing Monthly Magazines, along with a big feature in next year’s ABT Tournament Angler Guide.
In addition to these I’ll have a handful of posts for anglingaddiction.com. So enjoy the pics, I’ll have some more in a couple of days.
Also if you ever get the chance to go to Japan, do it!
The place absolutely rocks!
Great music, great bassin and a tonne of fun to watch. Click the play button to check it out.
