When Damiki Fishing Tackle introduced their Water Crawler to the angling world at the at the 2013 International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades show in July at Las Vegas, a goodly number of finesse anglers across the Midwest were eager to get their hands on this finesse worm. In their eyes, this two egg-sack creature would work well when it was rigged wacky style on one of Damikiâ€™s new 1/16-ounce Kaiser jig head.
Rumors across the great piscatorial grapevine proclaimed that it would begin showing up on retailersâ€™ shelves in mid-October.
But in an e-mail on Oct. 15, Daniel Kim of Valencia, California, who is Damikiâ€™s Director of Sale Marketing, said that the Water Crawler will not be sold in the United States and Canada.Â It will be available only in Korea.
A couple ardent finesse anglers said that they were thinking about writing a petition Damikaâ€™s office, asking them to reconsider their decision and sell it in the U.S.
Anglers,Â who want to send a petition to Damiki about this issues, can send it to 26017 Huntington LN Unit D, Valencia, California, 91355.
