The original minnow “KYO lure” made by Mr. Satoshi Takahashi, who was famous in the early days of handmade lures, was produced as a low-cost custom model under the supervision of Mr. Takahashi.
Balsa body, affixed with aluminum foil.
Thin, flat-sided body.
Thin substrate lip for better water entanglement, even in slow action.
The upturned shape of the body makes it swim just to the edge of the limit where the body can’t turn just by reeling it in, making it a fluttering minnow unlike any other minnow in the industry.
