Most international flights have been cancelled.
There is no ETA for out-of-stock items that come from Japan.
Shipments to overseas buyers will take longer than normal - possibly much longer. Patience is a virtue - especially in fishing.
This post is simply a list of all the channels on YouTube I watch that depict various methods of Japanese fixed-line fishing. Typing the name of the channels into the search bar should simply yield the channel but if not you shouldn’t have to look too much to find these channels. 1) gaffgallion gaff 2) 398world 3) kakapon supopon 4) mamama fishing (this one is very good but requires digging to find, the channel’s icon however is a catfish sketch so perhaps that will help) 5) Micro Fishing in Japan (posts are rare nowadays but still great content, minimal digging to find this channel, icon is a tanago (bitterling).
“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin
"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662
As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
