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 Damiki's new 1/16-ounce Kaiser jig head.
Rumors across the great piscatorial grapevine proclaimed that it would begin showing up on retailers' shelves in mid-October.
But in an e-mail on Oct. 15, Daniel Kim of Brea, California, who is Damiki's Director of Sales Marketing, said that the Water Crawler will not be sold in the United States and Canada. It will be available only in Korea.
A couple ardent finesse anglers said that they were thinking about writing a petition Damika's office, asking them to reconsider their decision and sell it in the U.S.
Anglers, who want to send a petition to Damiki about this issues, can send it to 2693 Saturn St., Brea, California, 92821-6703.
