Tenkara USA in Japan, 1st photo preview

It is 2am here in Japan right now. Got back not long ago from 3 days of backpacking and tenkara fishing. Dead tired, leaving early tomorrow morning to meet Dr. Ishigaki in Nagoya and then heading to the mountains again. I should be sleeping but couldn’t wait to share a few photos that caught my eye when I was putting them on a hard drive. Tremendous time, some excellent video footage and more photography to come, including interviews with Mr. Sebata, video on tying the Sebata tenkara fly (really unique, you don’t want to miss this one when it comes out), interview with Mr. Yoshida and more.

    I think you must have had a great time fishing with Sebata-san and learned a lot of new things. I am looking forward to hearing from you about him.

    Oh man thats good stuff !

    I too look forward to reading about the additional knowledge and experiences you gained during this trip. Bring back a hat and shirt like Mr. Sebata is wearing and I’ll buy them. ;- )

    Also glad to see no report of close encounters with the before mentioned hornets.

    Not meaning to jump over your later reporting but seeing Mr.Yoshida I suspected there might be something on his web site about this outing too.
