Several iterations of the Fishing Cafe featuring Dr. Ishigaki have been making the rounds of social media. I thought it would be nice to post the full-length, 52-minute version here, for ease of locating.  (A shorter 11-minute cut can also be found).

While it is a Japanese-language film, they were kind enough to subtitle it in English. Hope you enjoy the show!

About:
Fishing Café is the show that introduces fishing techniques in Japan. In this episode, Hisao Ishigaki takes us on a journey to discover the secrets of the Japanese fly fishing style, Tenkara. With only a rod, the line, and a fly, Tenkara is one of the simplest ways of fishing and has gained much popularity over recent years. Despite this modern phenomenon, Tenkara has been around in Japan over 100 years. Dr. Ishigaki takes us to learn the history behind this simple yet deep technique of Japanese fly fishing.
