JDM Spoons Shop


The JDM Spoons Shop makes a variety of Japanese spoons available to American anglers. Spoons are not that popular in the US, with only a few brands and only a few shapes available. In contrast, spoons are quite popular in Japan, primarily for fishing in Areas, the private pay-to-fish lakes. Their success in Areas has prompted manufacturers to introduce spoons for native fish in mountain streams. Interestingly, most of the spoons intended for fishing in streams still come with single hooks.

Many of the photos do not show hooks. However, all the spoons on this page have single hooks attached. The hooks are barbless unless otherwise specified.

Some photos show the front and the back of the spoon. There is ONE spoon per package.

Shimano Slim Swimmer CE

The "CE" stands for Compact Edition. The Slim Swimmer CE has the same width and length as the 1.5g Slim Swimmer, but it is stamped from thicker metal and weighs 2g. With more weight but the same surface area, the Slim Swimmer CE will cast further and swim deeper than the 1.5g Slim Swimmer. When fishing in a small stream, where distance casting is not critical, you may find that you are able to cast it more accurately than the lighter spoon. Additionally, if you fish with a baitcaster, the 2g Slim Swimmer CE will be noticeably easier to cast than the 1.5g Slim Swimmer. 

Please note: some photos also show the back of the spoon. There is only one spoon per package.

The spoons come with a single barbless hook.

Smith Pure Spoons

Pure, as is the pure form for a spoon, not pure metal (the gold and silver spoons are not pure gold or silver). Traditional shape that has stood the test of time. Equally at home in a lake or a mountain stream. Fish it slowly for best results.

Copper is good for bright days when a gold or silver spoon is a bit too flashy.

Single microbarb hook.  1 1/16" X 7/16"

Shimano Slim Swimmer Spoons

The Shimano Slim Swimmer has a gentle roll rather than a wide wobble, reducing the tendency to rise in the water column. The gentle roll also makes it easier for a fish to catch it, thus making it easier for you to hook the fish.
