About Us

"We manufacture and sell fishing gear with the motto, “Better and More Reliable Fishing Items.”
What do you first imagine with the words, “fishing gear”?
Maybe you imagine fishing rods, reels, lines, hooks, bait, or lures.
In fact, we do not manufacture any of them.
Then, you may wonder the kind of fishing gear we manufacture.
We manufacture smart fishing items that are not indispensable, but anglers will have some difficulty without them.

We have been making hit products in line with the times. These products include:
The Lark Series, which has now become the standard lineup of fishing holders for boat fishing;
The Suikomi Bucket, which makes it possible to put ground bait into sabiki (flasher rig) fishing baskets;
The Makikae Spool, which makes it easy to wind up lines to reels or rewind the reels;
The Auto King Gaff, which can safely and compactly carry landing gaffs for Eging (wood lure fishing);
The Knot Assist 2.0, a knot-forming tool essential to marine lure fishing.
Anglers can go fishing without these products. However, any of these products will dramatically surely make their fishing convenient and fun.

We will do our utmost to help in the inheritance, expansion, and development of fishing culture by continuously offering items that are friendly and easy to use for beginners as well as devoted anglers."
