Over the life of this forum, and under different topics - links have have been made to a Japanese blog -
郡上のテンカラ竿 ( 釣り ) - 長良川と郡上竿の世界
[ Gujo Tenkara Rod (Fishing)- Nagara River and Gujo Rod’s World] -
That had a wonderfel series of blog post about historic rods, lines, hook, kebari, fishing methods, culture, etc. Todoroki-san also frequently references information from that website.
Formerly it was on a yahoo server, you may recognize part of the URL - fk3yi8anpontan/ .
But I just discovered if I click on the old web address, found in an internet search-- I am taken to a Yahoo information page that states the blog was closed at the end of Dec 15, 2019.
While I could be mistaken - It appears the owner of that blog has moved to an ameblo server
New blog name ;
Nagara River and Gujo Rod’s World Welcome to the deep world
New website , but notice it still retains fk3yi8anpontan/ in the URL :
The content from the former blog location appears to have been transferred to the new blog server, (though I did see a few lost images), as can be seen in this May 2019 blog entry:
郡上竿でテンカラ釣り Tenkara fishing with Gujo rod
Internet searches will still turn up links to the old blog address on Yahoo, but the same content appears to be available on the new server. I probably never noticed it before because when I saw an image that looked like it might be from that blog, I never looked at the server name, I only looked at the " fk3yi8anpontan/ " part of the URL to recognize what blog it was. Anyway, that author frequent uploads a series of post on fun topics, if you like that sort of thing. And I see Todoroki-san and Mangetu-san, both members of this forum, are linked to on the blog.
Mangetu’s blog - if you haven’t see it before, it seems fairly new, not a lot entries thus far, and I haven’t yet quite figured out the best way to navigate it, here is one entry from a few days ago :
