New auction for Japan Relief Efforts

The first auction we held for the benefit of the on-going relief efforts in Japan was a huge success. We raised over $900 through the sale of a very rare authentic tenkara net.

Inspired by that auction, tenkara angler and  owner of TrailLite Designs, Thom Darrah, approached us to do a new auction by donating one of the products he designed, the Ebira rod quiver, as well as a tenkara gear set. The new auction includes all items one would ever need to go fishing – a complete tenkara set:

– Iwana 11ft rod, Series II (147.95)
– Ebira rod quiver (55.00)
– Tenkara Net (85.95)
– Book: Tenkara, Radically Simple, Ultralight Fly Fishing. Dr. Kelleher and Misako Ishimura (Signed by Dr. Kelleher) (19.95)
– 3 flies tied by Dr. Ishigaki (the only fly he actually uses for fishing) (priceless)
– Level line 3.5 (12.35)
– Traditional tenkara line 10.5ft (19.95)
– 2X Line holders (11.95 each)
– Tippet, 5X (7.55)
– Forceps/Nipper set (11.95)
– Fly box (12.35)
– Tenkara tea set (15.00)

Keep an eye open, I just got wind that there is a very rare, authentic bamboo tenkara rod coming from Japan, donated by Dr. Ishigaki for a new auction. It’s a very nice gesture from him. It will be the first time an authentic tenkara bamboo rod will hit the market and will probably be the only chance to ever acquire one as they are rare even in Japan – I may bid on that one myself too :)

100% of the proceeds from these auctions go to relief efforts in Japan.
