This is an amazing opportunity for the enthusiast of traditional tenkara kebari.
Nice looking kebari that would be fun to have and admire. But at ~ $10/ kebari they’re beyond my curiosity level no matter who tied them.
Thank you for letting us know about this opportunity. They look really cool. :- )
Hey no problem. Fujioka-san is the authority on tenkara kebari and besides that, a super nice guy.
This is a great price for his art and research that he has given to us.
I just ordered the East and West collection being offered by Tenkara-ya. I figure this opportunity will not
occur very often so I might as well take advantage of it. Thank you again for letting us know about the flies.
I will place these in a shadow box and display them proudly on the wall of my study room.
Cool. I’d probably be more tempted to get them too if I wasn’t on a self imposed restricted monthly tenkara budget, already spent this month & next, in an effort to pay off a $4k kitchen remodel faster.
If I couldn’t study them and figure out how to clone them I’d end up fishing with them and losing them to a fish, river bed stone or tree branch.
I tend to hold to the belief that kebari are for fishing not just for looking at.
I don’t want to be like Lone Watie ( Chief Dan George in the movie Outlaw Josey Wales) - wherein he said, "All I have is a piece of hard rock candy. But it’s not for eatin’. It’s just for lookin’ through. "
That is awesome!
I think you are on the right track.
Fujioka-san is the leading authority and to get kebari from him?
The work I have done in my collection of kebari includes some of his work.
I know this excitement and I’m glad that you find value in it.
