I used Fenwick 5-power rods for the first time in these years, and rediscovered they're not bad when I take only one rod with me.

I like fur finished mouse lures very much and collect Heddon Meadow Mouse and similar lures. I recently know that a German fishing tackle company, D.A.M., also made mouse lures long before, and at last I got one in my collection. It's a very cute lure and I'm very happy with it.

I found an ABU spinner (Sonnet) in my old tackle box. I remember it was one of the lures I bought for the first time in my life (to be precise, my parents bought for me, more than 33 years ago).
Last night, a good friend of mine in Europe (Germany) sent to me a bunch of old ABU spinners and spoons. I like these small ABU metal lures very much. Not only they're good for nostalgic days reminding me of old-day's fishing, but also very productive even now for trout fishing in Japan.
