It’s too cold out for my whimpy self. Snowing, 23˚F, and the creek is frozen over.
A digibook embedded on a webpage viewed last evening got me to playing around on the digibook website.
Just enter a search phrase at the top. Such as テンカラ.
The choices to the left of the search box are Title or Author - タイトル ・作者. Title is probably the best choice.
A search for テンカラ returns about 20 digibooks.

20 Digibooks with Tenkara in the title
Digibook Tenkara search
テンカラシーズンオフ [ Tenkara Off Season] well, actually it is written as - tenkara season off. 59 frames.
I never figured out what they were doing with the piece of gray PVC pipe, about 30 inches (76cm) which they would stick between the stones on the stream bed. Which first shows up around frame 18. Seemed like they were using it to look for something below the water surface. But what? Then toward the end, but in a blurry picture, it appeared they were dropping a small shovel full of fish eggs into a depression in the stones through the PVC tube. Where they looking for some kind of wild food, or doing some kind of fish conservation?

毛鉤 Kebari, found 7 digibooks. 毛鉤巻き Kebarimaki, kebari winding, only found 1 digibook titled 毛鉤巻き講習会 [ Kebari winding workshop]
鮎毛鉤 Ayu Kebari found none, but
鮎毛ばり Ayu Kebari found 1 digibook.
Point being, unlike google or other search engine, the digibook does not seem to find the same word if written with different kana characters. For example each of these spells Kebari : 毛鉤・毛ばり・けばり・毛針 .
釣り Tsuri, fishing, finds 144 digibooks, but that is a large topic with many types of fishing.
Anyway, some of them are kind of fun. For me a better choice than standing outside, very long, with the snow flakes flying more horizontal than falling straight down.
