This is the reports of annual fishing show held in Japan, mostly held at the end of Jan to mid Feb. In the annual shows, tackle manufacturers releases new models for the year, and they are the most important tackle show for sport fishing in Japan. I am visiting shows to verify the new tackle at quality, functions and texture in my hands, as well to search for new tackle. I am also checking un-written facts of new tackle, like manufactured place, materials used under paints, components compatibility, aims of manufacturer over conversations with reps. Meeting with R&D staff at booth is one of the most excitement at the shows. I report these to share with you, hoping you enjoy, and understand Japanese fishing tackle better.
2017 Fishing show is held at Yokohama, 2017 Jan. 19-22.
