has closed and has nothing left to sell, other than a few used books. I have decided to leave the website up as a resource for people interested in fishing with light rods, light lines and light lures - true finesse fishing.

JDM Spinners Shop

The JDM Spinners Shop brings Japanese lure design to American anglers who prefer spinners. In Japan, spoons are more popular in lakes, and minnow plugs are more popular in streams. In the US, spinners are more popular by far!

Given that Finesse-Fishing has carried a wide (and growing) selection of spoons and plugs, but up until recently no spinners, you might think that I am dead set against spinners. That is not the case. I've just never been happy with spinners that are readily available in the US.

Nearly all come with the predictable barbed treble hook. If you look hard enough, you might find some single hook spinners, but only with ungainly barbed Siwash hooks.

The spinners I've chosen to carry have a different design philosophy. First they come with a built-in swivel to reduce line twist. Second, they come with a single barbless or micro-barbed hook. The Daiwa Silver Creek spinners do come with a barbed treble hook, but the hook is attached with a split ring, so you can replace the treble with the single hook I will include with the spinner.

Smith AR-S


I ordered some Smith AR-S single hook spinners early last year which have not come. They might still come, as I recently have received some items I ordered as early as January 2022. Then again, they might not come. If you wish to be notified if in fact they are delivered, please use the Back in Stock email notification form.

Import Duties and Taxes

International purchases may be subject to import duties and taxes. I cannot keep track of all import regulations in all countries written in all languages. Understanding and paying import duties and taxes is the responsibility of the buyer.

Russia no longer ships to Russia.

UK no longer ships to the UK.
The new VAT regulations are too onerous for a one-man shop that rarely ships anything to the UK anyway. I apologize.


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
