Where to buy JDM or Japanese Domestic Market Tackle
10 years ago, this just started to become more prevalent and now it’s slightly more common. Some of the bigger names in fishing are carrying more and more JDM tackle. Plus, more professional anglers are coming to the U.S. to fish and bringing their techniques with them.
Almost 20 yrs ago when I got my first pack of JDM soft plastics, it was from eBay and that was it for me. Google didn’t do a great job a translating and it was kind of difficult to find them. Today there are a decent amount of tackle shops from big names to mom and pops tackle shops that carry JDM.
I won’t make this long and I will get right to it. What I am willing to share is where to buy in the U.S. and buying in Japan is a different story.
This is not all of the tackle shops in the U.S. that sell JDM it’s just the ones that I personally use.
Where to buy JDM or Japanese Domestic Market Tackle In Japan
I also have an extensive list of tackle shops that I have bought from in Japan with absolutely zero issues. I can’t even begin to tell you how many hours of research and scraping of the internet that I have done, probably hundreds to find all of these. I have 10 online shops in Japan, 1 in Europe, and 1 in Australia; they are all easy to buy from and ship to the U.S. Why am I selling the list? It took time to develop and I’m going to give you something really valuable in my mind. Plus, for $10, I’m going to save you sooooo much time. This is also one way to support the back-end of keeping this website going. If you do purchase the list, it will be a digital download. That $10 will save you so much time!
If you have any questions, please let me know.
