It’s been a while since my last post, so here is a brief roundup of recent events before proceeding with another busy week at the office. Some days ago, I got in touch with TACKLE tackle – a sweet little topwater shop based in Tokyo – through a recommendation from Switzerland (It’s a small world!).
I couldn’t resist to place an order containing two Robelson reel covers (2nd version) and a nice topwater crawler called – Oops!（スーパーグロウ）– by HandSome. Can’t wait to receive the sending, so fingers crossed that it goes through customs without any problems.
After more than 4 years ordering from Japan, I still have no idea how German customs are dealing with overseas sendings and why I have to pick up every second sending at the custom office. Really annoying.
Just yesterday, I had to spent a solid hour to clear customs for a small package from Kanagawa, containing some topwater plugs I won at Yahoo auctions back in February. I was lucky enough to get two Mikisuke & Honey plugs and another perfectly crafted topwater lure by Genuine Record for a good price and I’m looking forward to give them a try during the forthcoming trip.

Besides that I’m working on a blog post featuring a handful of nylon and PE lines for Japanese Surface Game and hope get things done until end of the week.
