The Finesse-Fishing Blog will highlight new pages on the Finesse-Fishing.com site and follow developments in ultralight spinfishing and ultralight baitcasting for trout.
We who look to Japan for information on lure fishing for trout in streams, whether with spinning equipment or ultralight "BFS" baitcasters, are used to reading everything through Google translations.
Those of you who remember your high school French lessons may be able to read this article directly. It is an introduction to Bait Finesse casting for trout and is worth a look (even if you do need a little help from Google).
I have found the Daiwa Gekkabijin 70-ULS Mebaru rod to be excellent for panfish in farm ponds and small streams. It casts very light lures easily and is
With all the concentration on the Daiwa Spoons recently, it is easy to forget about the C'ultiva ajing jigs and plastics. Word to the wise: "Don't!"
The Finesse-Fishing.com Black Friday Sale will start at 11 AM Eastern Time on Friday, November 24. That may sound unreasonably late to someone in NY, but it is 8 AM for anglers on the West Coast.
For some things that will be on sale, only one item is available. People all across the country deserve an equal chance.
Single hook lures for trout just make sense. Most trout anglers release their catch but releasing a fish doesn't guarantee its survival. Scientific studies have shown that spin fishing causes greater post-release mortality than fly fishing. I am sure the type of rod and reel have nothing to do with it. It's the treble hooks that are the problem. Treble hooks cause more damage and take longer to remove than single hooks. The longer a trout is out of water the greater the chance it will die after release - even if it looks fine swimming away. Single hook lures save trout.
Since I started using my new finesse spinning rod, I wanted to carry over my catch and release ethics from tenkara/fly fishing to my spin fishing. Part
I love fishing! I have been fishing since I was a child and the love affair continues. As I have grown older, fishing is as much about the entire experience
Hey all. I got my Ajing X 68L-S a few days ago. The quick and professional service that Chris provides. It is the only L rated JDM rod I have. All the
Very recently I received two Area Bum rods from Daiwa, the 4-piece 60XUL-4 and the extra, extra ultralight 56XXUL-S. On Sunday I took the 60XUL-4 out for a spin.
We don't have many pay-to-fish lakes in the US, but we have lots of lakes and untold miles of streams that are stocked with trout - as are the "Areas" in Japan. Most probably aren't stocked as heavily, or with fish that are quite as large, but then most aren't quite as pressured either.
Although the Area Bum rods are relatively soft, full flex rods designed for light lines (3lb max), they are quite capable of landing very nice fish as long as you don't have to battle the current as well as the fish (and as long as you have a reel with a nice drag, like the Daiwa Luvias 1003).
I am happy to announce the Finesse-Fishing.com Blog and a new "Your Stories" section of the website.
The Blog will highlight new pages on the site (including new "Your Stories" submissions) and also the addition of new products.
