I find it too hard to get good quality jigs so once every few years when I go back to japan for a holiday, doug has the best varity on the coast.
A selection I bought back last year.


Hi Mikey, Can you recommend any good shops for squid jigs in japan?

Cheers, Glen

haha fishy...
the life like ones work the best when the arvo sun is beating down and the squid refuse to bite anything else.

sunrise/sunset the squid bite just bout anything they can see so i just use simple jigs :)

I spent some time in Hakodate, (home of squid) my wife’s family comes from there so its easy to get around. Helps to have some inside info :)

I found online they go for the recommended retail which is not that good really. Inside the store, prices do drop, specials are every where.



This chain of shops where good,

These where ok as well. I bought lots of trebles from these guys, cost for chemically sharpened trebles was 2.50 ~ 3.50 pack of 8.



Sapporo city Americana fishing store.

hi kim,

i am still in china. i would love to go to japan one day but it won't be this trip. the closest i will get will be shanghai where i will be staying for a few days next week.

there are probably some good fishing shops in shanghai but not sure if the little lady would appreciate me taking a day out to visit shops. i did it last time when i went to hong kong and i streched her patience a little. hahaha

have a good one!
