Dr. Ishigaki on Honda Website

Dr. Ishigaki on Honda Website

Postby Anthony » Wed Jan 16, 2013 1:26 pm

There is a great tenkara post with Dr. ishigaki on a Honda website. Even though it's in Japanese you can learn a lot just from the diagrams. I haven't run it through google translate yet to see if that yields good info.

Here's the link: http://www.honda.co.jp/fishing/enjoy/season/season-201208/step-1/

To give credit where credit is due I got this link from a pinterest pin by che kebarer - here's his pinterest boards: http://pinterest.com/kebarer/

That is an interesting post. Subject to large mistakes due to something lost, or gained, in translation.

The top left paragraph gives this advice for learning the proper speed for casting level line.

It says of first importance in Tenkara is the transfer technique because the kebari has no weight and you are only using the weight of the line.

If using level line it is important to use the proper speed.

Try to move the line overhead in a circle, as in gymnastic rhythmic ribbon competition. If the speed is correct you can draw a clean circle. That speed will be suitable for casting.

Gradually move to an an ellipse little by little. Then to back and forth.

The top right paragraph talks about practicing many patterns of side casting techniques when the overhead is not clear.

Most of the rest is self explanatory. And they are jpg images and can't be run through translation software.

You find a lot of fishing information on the Honda web page, including some Tenkara stuff. I've never understood why Honda has an interest in fishing. Or rather fishing while walking. But it's nice for them to host it one their servers.

Opps. just noticed the web site posted by Anthony is only Step 1.

There is also a Tenkara introduction page about the tools; rod, line, tippet, flies, waders, sunglasses.

Step 2, about little tricks for use when fishing on the stream, C&R , etc

Step 3. about the Atari or strike, playing and landing the fish

Step 4, about his current favorite kebari, with 18 pictures of how he ties them

Thanks Anthony. It will take a little more study to massage a little more understanding of what's written beyond what comes out of a bulk software translation.

the idea if getting your timing from making ciclres in the air then transitioning to a back and forth cast is very interesting. i think that would be a good technique to use when teaching new people to cast .
