Angler : Mr. Shibata
Place : Gosan river
Lure : Imo-ripper Slim3.8（No sinker style）, SPIRON2.8（No sinker style）
Imo-ripper Slim really attracts bigger bass.
I caught nice bass on the first cast of the day.
After that, I cast SPIRON2.8 and got it into shallow water with cover. Soon after I started reeling it in, big bass exploded on it!! It bit like crazy!!!

2018 / May
Angler : Mr. Kuroda(Geecrack field tester)
Place : Gosan river, Japan
Lure : Gyro Gill80
Bad fishing condition.
Low water level and muddy water because of the preparation before rice planting.
I used SUGURI60, BB MUSTANG, GyroGill80, SPIRON2.8, and IMO-RIPPER SLIM3.8.
The rod I used was Julietta.
Cast GyroGill(tuned with weight) under overhanging trees.
Then gave it an action by shaking the rod while I was retrieving.
Nice sized bass hit it!!
It was a 41cm post spawn bass.
It had been a while since I went fishing in Gosan river.
I realized again how good the fishing was in there.
I love GyroGill.
It can be used to fish different depths by tuning weight.

We field tested the prototype long curly again and again,
and 90% of development has been completed.
Leaf Shrimp / Jika rig is perfect for fishing the beginning of weeds growing season.
Prototype Long Curly is perfect for fishing the season when weeds become taller.
Setting the hook is quite difficult when you are fishing with long curly worm
but SAF material is used in making it and fish hold it longer once it takes it.
It increases your rate of catch.
Prototype Long Curly with a free sliding weight[3.5〜7g].
Cast it into weed patches. It will entice bass which are suspending over it.
