How to operate Tradition-kebari

How to operate Tradition-kebari————————————

“kebari” is a harvesting tool

Also harvest and production … fish to harvest from the cultivation

Are they wet flies? Or dry flies? 

Kebari  is about 1 – 3 cm under the water surface and the water surface
・・・Kebari itself can not float

In mountain streams of Japan the main aquatic insects
are stone flies and ( Sedge and Caddis )

Many of kebari express Sedge and Caddis

I give action to appeal to fish, but that is a very delicate process

I will do it with awareness of the feeding lane

kebari is a brief representation of Sedge and Caddis (and Mayfly)

sakasa-kebari is express it by giving motion
・・・You can express the state of emergence
(Or very small lures fishing)

Can you tell me the way that you fish with them?
I would like to know the names of the techniques that you use with kebari

There is no name of the technique
Dare to name 叩き・捨て鈎・跳躍式・逆引き e.t.c = Imitation of aquatic insect movement

An example of kebari specialized for it 逆引き(止め釣り)

“逆引きand 止め釣り ” is the same as Reisenring Lift

 I think that it is a difference of way of saying

Imitate emergence behavior of aquatic insects from underwater
To stimulate the fish in the movement of kebari

Collect in one place the fish that swim separately

Touch the surface of the water with kebari two or three times to invite the hidden fish to make it easy to fish

I think that it is important to judge the point and line
( how to shed the line for kebari)

Do you fish upstream dead drift ? Downstream? Both?

60% in the upstream, 30% in the side, 10% in the downstream
I do not do dead drift
It controls as slower or faster than the flow (Waterfall Plunge)
・・・Stimulate fish hunting instinct
Sometimes depending on the situation of the kebari float on the edge of the rock and wait for the fish to come out

An example of kebari specialized for it・・・kebari float on the edge of the rock

Sometimes I will wait for a kebari while letting the kebari bounce into a flowing flow
It imitates the ecology of Caddisflies and all aquatic insects

An example of kebari specialized for it・・・kebari bounce into a flowing flow


Do you use action / 誘い ?

I will control the kebari on that lane in anticipation
of the fish’s pounding point

There is no natural drift of kebari
Control movement of kebari with rod tip operation
Make a deliberate natural drift = 誘い

I will imitate each stage of all aquatic insects with kebari

There are hit the surface, float, slide, bounce, cross

I think it is an invitation = 誘い

Even if you standing side by side,
it might be a subtle way of moving it may be hard to see

point and line・・・誘い

Looking at the kebari is important,
but I predict where the fish responds to that more than that

If the fish is wary of an artificial kebari’s move,
choose the thing that kebari itself moves

There are soft hackles, sakasa-kebari, kenbane-kebari

I found something great on the US tenkara blog

(It is very wonderful than my poor English)

soft hackle kebari

Please forgive my poor English
And if you know how to imitate the movement
of aquatic insects it is how you move Tradition-kebari

・・・How to hide yourself from fish

・・・Kebari fishing in middle mountainous areas of Japan

On the commercial basis,
kebari fishing in the middle mountain region of Japan is not mentioned much
This is italy but it is the same in all aspects

It looks the same place

Basic Fishing Equipment

Basic Fishing Equipment

In the past 3 to 4.5 meters made of bamboo rod
Currently 3.6 m made of graphite rod is commonly used
The line is taper line( twisted )and it has the same length as a rod
This makes it easy to operate kebari
With this gimmick, the distance to the fish is around 10 m

・・・The etymology of “Tenkara” has been introduced in another draft

Japanese fly(kebari)・・・・・History viewed from kebari

Reach the Kyoto when it comes to traditional Japanese fly
In the literature 1678 year’s head 蠅頭 (hae-gasira) sold by Iyemon in Kyoto
Form which tie the fibers of the hook to that time is still the order fly formula
In 1756 there was born a form to wrap Bird feathers  Lake Suwa(諏訪湖)

Around 1818 – 1829
Kyoto Sanjo Kawaramachi Higashi · Misuya (needle Nagahara sells) rapeseed hook
京都 三条 河原町 東 みすや針 菜種鈎   (natane-hari)
“natane hari(hook)”
wraps yellow feathers around hook shaft and golden ball on hook head
(May-Fly color of Pale Yellow)
・・・The beginning of the Ayu-kebari

In 1887 Mr.Nakamura,(中村利吉)
the head of Ginza’s needle&fish hunting wholesaler “Misuya Needle”
First looking Thomas B. Grabber of 1881 used it Hardy trout hook
Japanese fly(kebari) making begins from the time when he saw Fly (trout hook) made by Hardy
Turning point in hardy-made trout hook and Ayu-kebari to fit the technology that was developed for the Japanese fish of Japan kebari
Get results to a great extent at domestic and foreign exhibitions
・・・The beginning of the current kebari

current kebari

Make a transformation from fly to kebari
Kebari used in various parts of Japan
is now passed on to traditional kebari

note ———————

Secret Point 秋山郷毛鉤・・・伝承 folklore

The mouth of the fish is a sensory organ

For that reason,
if you feel the fish is a foreign object,
let go of it from the mouth

Character of 岩魚(iwana)
Char the two-three times in order
to determine whether or not the thing that e mouth in the mouth can eat,
move the mouth

What if you feel stiff or thorns in your mouth?
・・・Do you laugh at an interesting way of thinking

It was a brief introduction

In order to know how to use traditional kebari,

I think that it is the best response
to ask the fish using the real traditional kebari

Why do not you try fun research together
There are plenty of kinds of fish and places to live are various

I am not a teacher
I think that it is a companion who enjoys fishing together

I need your help if possible

My English is very poor,
so please tell me if you have any mistakes
