↑ Gamakatsu's Product Developer, Shinji Tanaka, showed off products from the company's LUXXE sub-brand on the business day at the Osaka fishing show.
↑ The large Daiwa booth was a popular draw for visitors to the show, who were eager to see the company's latest new launches.

The Coronavirus cast a shadow on the business day of the Osaka fishing show in Japan, with a number choosing not to make the trip.

However, the health crisis, which emanated from neighbouring China, had no effect on the energy levels of the event with some of the world’s major manufacturers, including Shimano, Gamakatsu and Daiwa, in attendance and showing off a raft of innovative new products.

Gamakatsu introduced products from its LUXXE sub-brand that has been carefully developed under the watchful eye of Product Developer, Shinji Tanaka, and his team over the last 18 months.

Daiwa was also making a noise with its new Saltiga collection, which included a range of rods and reels that John Watson, Business Manager of Tacklesteam, Angling International’s new digital platform where brands can showcase their products to retailers, described as ‘simply sublime’.

Other items from the tackle giant included a very impressive line-up of spinning and baitcasting rods that are expected to be a huge hit with all Daiwa fans who will be attending tomorrow’s consumer event.

Other popular Japanese brands that were out in force included rod manufacturer, Evergreen International, world leading rod component company, Fuji and high performance rod brand Zenaq.
