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.

The Daiwa Micro Lumion spoons are 5/16" wide and just 3/4" long. Daiwa describes the action as a wide roll.

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.

1 1/4" x 3/8"

Pure, as is the pure form for a spoon. (Not pure gold). 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.
