Video: Tying Flies with Mr. Yuzo Sebata

Wow. What a wonderful video put together by Daniel Galhardo and Tenkara USA. It’s a little bit longer than most (over 8 minutes) but well worth the time:

From the video’s description:
Mr. Yuzo Sebata is one of the most well-known tenkara anglers in Japan. He keeps his fly-fishing simple and enjoys backpacking in the mountains of Japan catching trout and foraging for mushrooms. When we went backpacking together, he brought along a very simple fly-tying kit, which he pulled out at our camp by the stream and proceeded to tie a fly. Watch to see how he ties flies without a vise and with very simple materials.

Fallfish Tenkara: 2016 Year In Review

It’s no secret that Isaac Tait of Fallfish Tenkara has been a very big part of the success of Tenkara Angler magazine. His contributions to the various issues have been tremendous, and his content has brought us all a little bit closer to tenkara and culture in Japan.

The other day, Isaac posted a 2016 “Year in Review” post at Fallfish Tenkara. It’s full of photos, and specifically, the video also embedded below. Do yourself a favor and go over to his post by clicking THIS LINK as well as watching the associated video.


The video has beautiful sights from all over Japan, however, if you’re specifically interested in fishing footage, it begins around the 3:00 mark.

Enjoy!

There was a wonderful profile of Japanese tenkara Master, Yuzo Sebata posted to the FishingVision.tv website the other day. Translated into English, the 20-minute video takes us on stream with Sebata-san, and gives us insight into his background as an angler & naturalist.

Today, they debut their new free video series entitled “Tenkara in Focus.” With over a half hour of footage from around the world, it’s a must watch for anyone with an interest in tenkara.

You may also happen to notice a familiar face/name about halfway through. I was fortunate enough to participate in their first episode with a report on behalf of Tenkara Angler magazine from the 2016 Tenkara Jam.

I hope you enjoy…I know you will.
