Many times I have seen reference to ハックルさん (hakkuru-san) Mr. Hackle, I guess.
This evening I found this web-page, with the title 初めてのてんから！？｜天竜川水系 テンカラ釣り First time Tenkara !? | Tenryu River Water System Tenkara Fishing
With a picture of a kebari with the caption - 毛鉤はもちろんハックルさんの“スギッパ巻”。 Of course a kekari Mr Hackles “Sugippa wound”.
[ btw, Chris L - he is using a Daiwa Neo Tenkara Minomushi 33 rod ]
And right on the g3kebari website it says
名前 ： ハックル Name: Hakkuru
Anyway, I’m still not sure what is meant by a スギッパ巻き。(sugippa-maki.) Sugippa Winding. It appears to be a name of his own creation. Most Sugippa wound kebari are on his blog or on blogs that reference Hakkuru-san or the g3kebari blog.
Ah, I found the video with the fire festival. But they are burning bamboo, not cedar. The video - is mostly about the ハンゴーコンロ！ (hangōkonro!) Hangō /messkit stove. But at the beginning is the Fire Festival. I have discovered it is an annual event in January - called, by different names in different regions: とんど・火祭り (Ton do hi matsuri) Tondo Fire festival
左義長・火祭り (Sagichō hi matsuri) Sagichō Fire festival
三毬杖・火祭り (Sagichō hi matsuri)… ?? 三・毬・杖 ( san mari tsue) 3 Cane Cones ??
btw - maybe some of you have not seen Todoroki-san’s original blog.
I had seen it many times before he started the new blog.
てんから伝 剣羽根毛鉤 Tenkara Den Sword Feather Kebari.
[ I have read in a couple of places that it is said - it is a good thing that 剣羽根 (kenhane) feathers are limited in supply, else all the fish would be caught)
