For the better part of a decade I’ve been bugging Yamamoto VP of Operations Ron Colby for a range of new products and soft plastic colors, some of which I’m surprised he hasn’t adopted and others of which I’ve realized I shouldn’t mention anymore.
I had just about given up hope on buzzbaits. They’d been my bread and butter in the late 90s and for a few years thereafter. Back then I probably threw them a little bit more than I should have, but the results were encouraging enough that I didn’t mind the occasional dry spell. About seven or eight years ago, though, the dry spells started getting longer and longer and longer.
