Todoroki kebari dubbing

(Gressak) #1

Todoroki san was extremely generous and sent me some beautiful dubbing. He also sent me an assortment of beautifully tied flies embedded in the material.

He is clearly a talented artist.

Thank you so much Todoroki san!

I was amazed how dark the zenmai was. Did you harvest it yourself?

You noted that you leave it in the sun to dry out. Is the coloration difference just from that process or did you use something to dye the material?

The stuff I collected is very very light…but I just harvested it off the plant within a day or two after picking it.

I gathered it about 40 years ago
This is a protected thing for anglers and growing big

It is transformed into those wonderful as material enough to go through the era

I do not dye

It is natural itself of “zenmai”

Wow. I am honored.

I have learned “Kebari and Fly” from various anglers until now

That is the “kebari” of Japan that has been treasured in the area

I introduced various “kebari” which remain with the photograph of about 100 years ago
Tradition “kebari” is also in it

Although it may not be the current “tenkara-kebari”, it has been used since a long time ago

“Profession fisherman kebari” even I was taught that tradition

My wish is just to introduce it to everyone

It is the responsibility of my tradition
・・・“Tradition” is told and there is an obligation to convey it

Todoroki san,

If I were to take pictures of each fly you have tied for me and posted each one separately in its own thread. Would you be willing to share details of the pattern, materials, and history?

(todoroki toshirou) #9

Yes, I would like to introduce everything I learned if there is hope

That is neither imagination nor speculation but from the past literature, materials and pictures

I hope you all recognize it as a historical fact

I’ve introduced it to date, but these may have caused confusion and misunderstanding

I feel strange whether the actually used “kebari” has not been introduced
