WooDream lures are Japanese hand made wooden lures. They are absolutely beautiful (and they catch fish). There are several models and quite a few colors but not all styles and definitely not all colors are available at any one time. I have not been able to get all the styles or all the colors I want. What I can get depends on what is available when the order is placed. More info...

Yo-Zuri used to offer a single-hook version of the 2 inch Pins Minnow. It no longer does. These Pins Minnows come from Yo-Zuri with a pair of treble hooks. They will come from Finesse-Fishing.com with a single replacement hook taped to the box.
Japanese lure fishermen prefer sinking minnows rather than floaters.
The Duo Spearhead Ryuki is a sinking minnow whose flat sides and low center of gravity produce either a continuous twitch or a high performance swimming action depending on your retrieve. The heavy weight of the 50S adds to casting distance and accuracy with either a spinning rod or a baitcaster. The 38S may be more appropriate for smaller streams and spinning rods, but at 2.8g, it should be heavy enough for a UL baitcaster with a BFS reel.
Each lure comes from the factory with two barbed trebles. Each lure will come from Finesse-Fishing with a single barbless hook taped to the box and a request to remove the front treble and replace the rear treble with the single hook.
The first Japanese minnow lure I ever got was a Daiwa Silver Creek minnow. I thought it was a wonderful lure, and I caught a quite a few fish with it. Initially I was reluctant to import it, thinking it might be too expensive to sell well. However, the Spearhead Ryuki and Daiwa Step Darts have sold, so I have reconsidered.
The flat sides and low center of gravity produce a very enticing wiggle with a steady retrieve and controlled twitches with a pulsed retrieve.
The lures come from Daiwa with a pair of treble hooks. They will come from Finesse-Fishing with a single barbless hook taped to the box.
