Not many people know this story...
The story of Hiroshi and Tak Omori has begun 30 years ago.
Two young men accidentally run into each other by the lake called "Lake Kawaguchi" in Japan.
Hiroshi was dreaming about becoming lure builder, and Tak was dreaming about becoming professional bass fisherman.
They immediately became good friends, and spent some time fishing and talking about their dreams.
After years has past, Both of their dream came true, and Tak Omori was in need of repaint the lure for his tournament. He asked Hiroshi to paint the lure called "RC" from Lucky Craft to red crawfish color which became the official base design of RTO 1.5 craw color from lucky craft.
It is very coincident that Nishine Lure Works also released very new round lip Crankbait called "Chippawa RB" in Japan last year. (This will be available in March, 2018 in Japan.)
We have taken pre-order for this inspired 9 colors including crawfish color in November, 2017, but we had to stop taking orders in 2 days due to unexpeted order surge.
We are hoping to deliver in North America sometime in April, 2018!! Please checkout how Chippawa moves in the water!!
