Oni cram school (juku) blog post by the blogger at Tenkara - Beginner website. Aug 8th entry.
Apprentice to the demon teacher! Record / Story of Oni Tenkara Fishing cram school.
Of course the blog entry is written in Japanese. The odd digital translation will provide a hint of the experience. And if you can’t read any Japanese at all, the rest of the entertainment will have to come from the often bizarre electronic translation.
This might help a little bit (though different digital translators will translate words or phrases differently, some even differently on different days [Google translate has been screwy for the last two years or so ; - ( ] :
Juku (塾) is cram school. Or just School.
Masami Sakakibara (榊原正巳さん) is either : Tenkara’s Demon or Mr. Ogre.
Onisuku (鬼塾) is Oni Cram School, It may also translate as democracy juku. Or Teacher.
Pasha fish (パシャっと魚) Pasha is a word you can sometime here in videos when the fish comes out and takes the kebari.
Kebari (毛鉤) may translate as : furrows or furry, or even flush hairs [ this 毛鉤を打つ場所, place to hit (place) the kebari translated as - place to hit the furrows - very strange, yes]
For a forum called 10 Colors Tenkara - I think this was the most appropriate sentence in the blog post. 「釣り方は無限大です」The way of fishing is infinite. or “How to fish is infinite.”
