Kieryu with tenkara rod
I know this is not true keiryu fishing but I think this counts as keiryu fishing. My setup was simple, a Shimosuke tenkara 3.3, 6ft of 14 lb Berkley Vanish fluorocarbon, 3ft of 1.8 lb 8x tippet,a small float and a very small split shot couple inches above the size 12 long shank hook with a small piece of eastern sea garfish for bait. Not long after that I caught a juvenile sea mullet around 3". The second fish was a yellowfin bream but it busted me off, but I caught 4 yellowfin bream afterwards in the 5-8" range, all the bream put up a fun fight.

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
