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.



.5 Gram



Rodio-craft is a small Japanese company that makes spinning rods, spoons and plugs for fishing in Areas. Their .5g Blinde Flanker spoons are slightly smaller than the now-discontinued Daiwa .4g Vega spoons. The Blinde Flankers are 20mm long and 8mm wide. The Vega spoons were 23mm long and 9mm wide.

At .5g, they will not be too heavy to fish with tenkara rods.

Being both heavier and smaller than the Vega spoons, the Blinde Flanker spoons should fish a bit deeper than the Vega spoons, which will be an improvement, particularly in streams.

The Blinde Flankers come with a single barbless hook.

The Rodio-craft Blinde Flanker also comes in a 1.4g size. The spoon is 9mm wide and 22mm long (roughly 3/8" x just under 15/16). The outline looks very much like the Daiwa Eve, which as proved to be very effective. The Blinde Flanker has a bit more aggressive curvature, which should give it more wobble and less roll than the Eve.

The hook is a barbless size 6.

Daiwa Presso Lumion

The 1.9g Daiwa Presso Lumion is just 1mm longer than the Eve but it is stamped from thicker metal. It will achieve greater depth than the Eve, and may thus be a better choice for fishing larger streams. At 1.9g, it is heavy enough to use with BFS gear.

Daiwa Speed replacement barbless hook

The action has a more pronounced wobble than the Eve.

The spoons come with Daiwa Speed Hooks, size 6, shown at right. The perspective of the photos below makes it look like the gape is much narrower than it actually is. The hook in the Yellow Dagger photo is not the hook that it comes with.

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.

The 2.5g spoons do not say "CRUSADER" and do not have a cross. Also, the proportions are not the same as the photos, which are of larger, heavier spoons. The 2.5g Crusader spoons are about 7/16" wide and 1 1/16" long.

Forest MIU Abalone

The Forest MIU  Abalone spoons are unlike any lures I have ever seen. The spoons are iridescent, and as they move they shimmer - catching the light and reflecting rainbow colors in irregular bars, stripes or just splashes of bright color. A still photo cannot do them justice because the pattern changes as they move.

The color pattern on every spoon is different. The images above are representative of all the spoons. There is no noticeable difference in the patterns of the different sizes. Every spoon is unique. There is a subtle base color of a light grey on one side and a light cream color on the other, with a black outline on the grey side and a gold outline on the cream side. The back of the spoon is gold.

The spoons come with a single micro barb hook and a split ring to attach your line or snap.

Smith D-S Line Spoons

Smith D-S Line Spoon"S" Bend

The Smith D-S line spoons have a more pronounced "S" bend than many spoon designs. This shape gives it good movement at a low retrieve speed. The raised front will also make it dart one way or another with slight pulses of the rod tip. The "D-S" might or might not stand for "dart and swim," but the shape does allow more manipulation than you could ever get with the familiar US spoon brands.

Spoon with text reading Bite Marker and Sight Marker

The back of the spoons have orange and chartreuse dots. I have not yet had a chance to fish with them, so I cannot confirm if the Sight Marker actually does allow you to see the spoon more easily during the retrieve, of if the Bite Marker actually does give the fish a target to bite.

It is the face of the spoon that intrigues me. The Smith D-S line spoons have a crosshatch either machined or stamped onto one side of the spoon face. It definitely catches the light as you move the spoon.

The images below are better than I could take with my simple point and shoot camera, because the spoons are shiny enough I always got a blue reflection of my blue camera. The image of the Yamame Silver spoon shows a highlight along the crosshatching, and a darker area below that. The darker area is just how the light plays on the very shiny silver. There is no gray paint on the spoon. There is some white paint along the edge opposite the crosshatching. It is very similar to the orange paint that is more easily seen along the edge of the Yamame Gold spoon.

  • Light catching cross hatching
  • 3 grams (roughly 1/10 oz)
  • Single Micro Barb Hook
  • Split rings for maximum action

Forest Marshall River

The Forest Marshal River series of spoons are larger, longer and more aggressively cupped than the Marshal 2.3g or Tournament spoons. As their name suggests, they were designed for fishing mountain streams and larger rivers as an alternative to plugs.

They are 3/8" wide and 1 15/16" long, virtually the same length as the 50 mm sinking minnows that are the "go to" lure for many Japanese anglers who fish lures in mountain streams. At 4.8 g, they are also a comparable weight and will cast like bullets with either spinning or BFS tackle.

My limited photo skills cannot adequately capture the lures' colors, particularly the No.11. The No.11 spoon is silver on the half of the spoon towards the bottom of the photo, and a greenish gold on the half towards the top of the photo. The parr marks are blue. The back of the spoon is silver.  The No.12 spoon is golden brown on the side towards the top of the photo and orange along the side at the bottom of the photo. The parr marks are silver and the spots are white. The back of the spoon is gold. The N0.14  spoon is flat black with blue sparkles. The No.15 spoon is striped, pink, yellow and orange, and has silver sparkles.

The Forest Marshal River spoons come with  a single micro barb hook.

Shipping

Domestic shipping is by USPS First Class Mail (unless ordered along with a rod). The $4 charge will be added to your order automatically.

Please note: All packages are shipped via USPS. If you have a PO Box, please list ONLY the PO Box in your address, not the PO Box and your street address.

International shipping is by USPS First Class Mail Intenational (unless the entire order is over $400 or the order requires a box longer than 24". The shipping charge depends on the destination and the weight, length and value of the package.

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.
