Features of fluffy
Fuwatoro is a crankbait for area trout produced by Shimano. Fuwatoro uses a joint mechanism, and its biggest feature is that even when reeling very slowly, the joint allows it to swim while making small waves.
Many area trout respond to the slow movement of lures, and are often lured with micro spoons, but the fluffy trout, which has a different movement than the micro spoon and has a large silhouette that can be seen slowly, is one variation. This is a lure you'll want to have.
Fluffy 35F is recommended for targeting the surface layer.
Fuwatoro 35F is a floating type, so it is recommended for targeting the surface layer. It is easy to take action even with slow winding such as dead slow retrieve, and the distance traveled by the lure is suppressed so that it does not increase the distance, making it possible to sufficiently appeal to fish.
There are a total of 20 colors available, with very distinctive and interesting colors such as cherry pie, bitter chocolate, sesame pudding, and fluffy omelette rice. We have everything from vivid to dark to clear colors, so you won't have any trouble color rotation.
Approach fish in deeper layers with fluffy 35D-F
Fluffy 35D-F is a floating type like 35F, but when reeling dive deeperIt looks like this. You can approach a wide range of trout from the surface layer to the middle layer to the bottom layer.
There are 16 colors available, which also provides ample color variation. 35D-F is often more effective in situations where fish are not floating, so we also recommend it.
Conquer the water surface with the fluffy top 35F
From the surface layer to just below the water surfaceIt is a subsurface model that is ideal for conquering. This is the best type when you can see a reaction at the top, and it also supports dead slow retrieves.

In addition, if you wind it a little faster than the dead throw after it hits the bottom, you can swim and conquer the bottom thread, making it possible to use it in a wide range of ways.

Can Fuwatoro be used for things other than tube fishing?
Fuwatoro was created for use at managed fishing spots, but can it be used for other types of fishing as well?
Fluffy is a lure that attracts with a dead slow motion, so it is not suitable for places with currents such as mountain streams. You can use it by focusing on points where the current is slow and stagnant, or by attracting it by winding it fast enough to not lose to the current.
You may be able to catch trout that don't respond to other lures.
Since it is a small lure, it may be effective against bass in slippery conditions. It is better to retrieve it a little earlier than when using it for tube fishing.Due to its light weight, Spinning tackle or bait finesse tackleWe recommend that you use it.
There is no problem with small bass, but if the bass gets to a certain size, there is a risk that it will be stretched out with a standard hook. However, if you increase the hook size, the balance of the lure will be lost, so basically it should be used only for small bass.
The size and action are the best match for Mebaring. A fluffy dead throw is especially effective in situations where rockfish are boiling on the water surface.
In addition, Fuwatoro 35D-F and Sokotoro 30S can be used with the recently popular goby cranks. Try to entice him with the image of him gently nudging the bottom and rolling it up.
