another lovely-lovely image depicting that special moment by Takashi Kuwahara
pretty much based on the use of a Tenkara-style rod*, regardless of what kind of rod you’re fishing, if we disregard the silly stuff like “let the wind load the line” and the rather mindless “constant tension cast” concept, there’s several very-very good drift techniques in these videos well worth adding to your bag of tricks. the kind of stuff that can make or break a day on the water. enjoy !
*several comments from born-again tenkarists have been removed from the Youtube comments section. it’s funny how easily they get ruffled when their venerated style evolves…
not to worry, the little beauty was carefully released after the filming sequence.
