Introducing the Nories brand and the lure designs of Japanese bass fishing legend Norio Tanabe!
Norio Tanabe is a true
pioneer and innovator in Japanese bass fishing. In fact, his decision to travel
to the United States to fish professional bass tournaments is one of the
pivotal points in bass fishing history.
A modern day Marco Polo,
Tanabe brought back to Japan not only a contagious enthusiasm for the sport,
but also a treasure trove of American bass lures and techniques that went on to
spark a revolution in the ways the Japanese fished. His stories and accounts of the
American bass scene became the seeds of the Japanese bass fishing industry,
which has gone on since to send shockwaves through the bass fishing universe.
Lee's Global Tackle

Here at Lee's Global Tackle we have the pleasure of bringing
you the angler some of the finest in High Quality fishing tackle from around
the world.The sport of Bass fishing
seems to be growing by the day, and with the increased popularity the same old
tackle doesn't cut it anymore for most innovative bass fisherman.This is why Lee's Global Tackle has gone out
to find the latest and greatest in the fishing world.There are many domestic shops where you can
find Lucky Craft lures and Jackall Bros. baits, but only here can you find a
source for hard to find colors and sizes.The special hard to find colors and sizes are usually found in Japan and
are called Japanese Domestic Market baits (JDM), because this is where they
originated.By taking lures that
American anglers have been using for years and totally reworking them until
they are perfect, the Japanese have revolutionized the bass fishing world.One of the unique features of the JDM lures
is that they are of extremely high quality.This quality tackle gives fishermen the confidence that they need to not
just compete against the other fishermen, but the elements.
New Japanese fishing techniques are being developed
weekly.Some of these specialized
techniques require special tackle to throw them.Finesse fishing is a huge Japanese technique
however most American bass fishermen are used to fishing heavy line with heavy
baits in heavy cover.Anglers that are
unfamiliar with finesse fishing would freak out about using 3-4 lb. test fluorocarbon
line for smallmouth fishing.On the
other hand for those open mined anglers who try lighter quality line, you will
notice a huge difference in the amount of bites you will get.Now for those open minded fishermen that are
switching to the light high quality fluorocarbon lines they will notice that
those lines only come in small 110 m. or less size spools.The problem they will run into is cast
ability and spool depth.What the JDM
reels feature is the option for a shallow spool, different drag weights, and
handle length.I could talk about the
features that JDM reels have over American market reels all day, but you really
need to experience them for yourselves.
Jigs-How many times
have you noticed that your jig skirt is slipping down the hook shank on a hook
set or fish catch?Well if you are like
me, you can appreciate how a Hand-Tied skirt that stays on the jig like white
on rice.Companies like Jackall Lake
Police, Megabass, and O.S.P. have also innovated the Jig world by designing new
jig heads and eye placements, to make sure that bait has irresistible action
and hook ups.
Crank baits- JDM
manufactured crank baits are almost like small pieces of art.The leaders in the Japanese Hard Bait world
are Lucky Craft, Megabass and JackallLake police.They have developed crank baits for any
condition.For example Megabass has a
crank bait called the "Griffon" and this bait comes in seven different models,
some have rattles, some dive to different depths, and some have different
actions.Now this is just one of eleven
model crank baits that Megabass makes.Lucky
Craft makes seventeen different Trout and Salmon color patterns for a BASS
BAIT.One could go mad trying to choose
a color in a JDM hard bait, but personally I love it (my wife says am clinically
JDM soft baits are something you really need to check out if you are a worm
fisherman.For years I have been
destroying giant smallmouth bass on the great lakes with the Jackall Cross Tail
Shad on light line.I have not kept this
a secret and shared the information with many others who have all done the
same, now I am talking about the US version of the Cross Tail.If you thought these worms were super soft
and high quality you haven't even seen the Super Cross Tail Shad baits, they
have eyes, scales and a profile of small baitfish.I personally love the hand poured baits that
have come from Japan. Another example of a high quality soft plastic bait is the O.S.P. Do Live Craw
(most popular bait in Japan).The Do Live Craw is a crawfish bait that
comes in four different sizes, they feature a "spot on" crawfish scent, reverse
legs that vibrate during the fall, and two giant claws that flap back and forth
during the fall.Never have I seen such
a well developed crawfish imitator, and it works like a charm, that's why we
can't keep them in stock.
Whether it's Spinning reel that looks like it came from the
year 2050, a precision wound spool of Finesse Fluorocarbon line that you could
read the newspaper through, or a Jerk bait that shifts its weight to cast like
a missile I would like to invite all open minded anglers to experience the
world of the Japanese Domestic Market.
The beauty of the ima Square Bill is it’s really three or four baits in one. While some other square bills are good burned, others are at their best when they’re waked or twitched. Some do well deflecting off cover while others are best in open water. The ima Square Bill can match each attribute and talent, with no weakness. My favorite is to mix it ALL up on a single retrieve, going “from twitching to waking, to reeling it down to three feet to burning it.” It’s not just a jack-of-all-trades – it’s a master of each one, too.
