    Great cast! It’s so nice to hear a Japanese perspective on American Tenkara. Did you ever find out any more information on the angler running the small ryokan up in the Kurobe region? (Saiki San, I think?) Does he really catch the fish in the air with his hands?! That’s something I’d love to see! Always wanted to do some backpacking (and fishing) in Japan. Staying in a tiny mountain ryokan in the summer sounds amazing.
