What is SASOI ( 誘い) (to attract fish)?

This older post compliments the one above with some video.

I like these techniques shared by Oni (as usual Oni San #1).
A big fly will often result in broken harisu from a big fish. It's exciting however because a big fly does seem to make things happen. I like to think the fish isn't looking for a sandwich instead they want the MANwich.

In the hot summer or at night the tapping of the fly on the surface a few times really works for bringing fish out of their hiding spots. Tenkara knocking on heavens door.

Good additions for getting the hookup.

Total indifference on the part of the fish. Is this an effective fishing technique?

I think you will find there is a difference between a demonstration and actually fishing. As pointed out by Oni you use Sasoi during the correct situation. Whether it is effective depends upon the conditions, the fish and your skill.

You will have to judge for yourself. :roll:

Some examples:

2014 解禁 SASOI1 , Oni prefers natural drift fishing for wild trout. This video is opening day following fishing ban, a day for sasoi technique. Oni finds saoi effective for stocked trout, though they are not his favorite, he prefers wild trout, and stocked or pond fish respond better to a variation different from river wild trout. - 12:20

Daniel's - Tenkara Techniques, demo - in variations of the technique I think Oni called it "stop and feed" and in Daniel's demonstration he calls it "pause and drift" , or a variation, " pull and pause". ( at least I think they are talking about the same thing) They are each techniques where you impart action or stillness to the motion of the kebari to "invite" the fish to take the fly , by making it stand out from drifting materials in the water, or to trigger their instinct to react to movement.- 4:40

誘い = Sasoi = invitation / invite / inviting, etc.

fwiw,

I fish this way a lot, sometimes it works and sometimes the fish want the fly dead drifted. I find that fish in certain rivers seem to like it more than others. i.e., fish on the Gallatin love the pulse, especially the valley stretch that I live closest to. Fish on the Madison, not so much but I have caught fish this way. I guess it's sort of like having favorite flies for different rivers.

Here is a link to fishing what we call the pulse, perhaps not exactly what Mr. Sakakibara is doing but close. You can see that it can work quite well in actual fishing situations:

After watching SASOI1 it looks like he is using a fairly long rod with a very long line, holding the rod with the tip very elevated and pulsing the fly. Maybe the reason that the Ito is such a popular rod?

Bob, I was using an Ito in the video I posted. It's my favorite rod if I have room for it, regardless of the technique I'm using. I've pulsed flies with pretty much all the rods in our line up but do like the longer rods with a little bend to them (Mr. Sakakibara's rod is 4 meters). I also find it much easier to pulse flies with a line at least a little longer than the rod. It seems to give more anchor to pull against.
