Again I was able to add some truly gorgeous topwater lures to the arsenal. This time I got hands on some rare creations by my favorite Nagoya-based lure builders. Another one has it’s origins somewhere between the countless rivers and green mountains of Tokushima prefecture. As usual, I’m adding some detail shots so that you can get a better idea and picture of lure deigns and amazing color patterns. Enjoy.

I know it might sound a bit greedy, but I just couldn’t resist and added a second OneNac to my box. I really fell in love with Anydope‘s lively moving single-swisher during first field tests some weeks ago and when I got the chance to get one in the compelling ‘BWS’ color pattern, I just couldn’t resist.

Partboy3 is a limited release to celebrate HandSome‘s 2012 “Summer Party”, which surprisingly took place early december. I’m in touch with Shimazaki-san every now and then and when I first heard about the release of “PartyBoy”, I kindly asked to get one. Hat-tip to Ryuichi Kawase and my friend Tsuyoshi for taking care of communication and shipping to Berlin. Even if I couldn’t make it to the event, I was more than happy to be able to purchase one of these “Partyboys”.

To find an additional ‘TailPlayer’ enclosed to the package was a great surprise and I can’t wait to give both plugs a first try.

Last but not least, I want to share some shots of Abdeal‘s ‘Oval’ that comes along in a truly special color pattern. First time saw this lure was at the Slowtaper shop during last years trip to Japan, but somehow I had the feeling that it might be worth to wait until more color variations of this sweet double-swisher got to be released.

More or less accidentally, I stumbled upon this limited release for OPA! Tackle Store. I instantly fell in love with the natural wood body coating – garnished by a clean black and white racing stripe. See for yourself..

The next weeks and months might become quite busy in terms of work-load, so this post might have to do for a while. Have a good Sunday, back soon with more surface game related stuff and a first sneak preview of a secret project. Until then.
