Yoshikazu Fujioka collection of traditional kebari

This is an amazing opportunity for the enthusiast of traditional tenkara kebari.


Nice looking kebari that would be fun to have and admire. But at ~ $10/ kebari they’re beyond my curiosity level no matter who tied them.

Thank you for letting us know about this opportunity. They look really cool. :- )

Hey no problem. Fujioka-san is the authority on tenkara kebari and besides that, a super nice guy.

This is a great price for his art and research that he has given to us.

I just ordered the East and West collection being offered by Tenkara-ya. I figure this opportunity will not
occur very often so I might as well take advantage of it. Thank you again for letting us know about the flies.
I will place these in a shadow box and display them proudly on the wall of my study room.

Cool. I’d probably be more tempted to get them too :drooling_face: if I wasn’t on a self imposed restricted monthly tenkara budget, already spent this month & next, in an effort to pay off a $4k kitchen remodel faster.

If I couldn’t study them and figure out how to clone them I’d end up fishing with them and losing them to a fish, river bed stone or tree branch.

I tend to hold to the belief that kebari are for fishing not just for looking at.
I don’t want to be like Lone Watie ( Chief Dan George in the movie Outlaw Josey Wales) - wherein he said, "All I have is a piece of hard rock candy. But it’s not for eatin’. It’s just for lookin’ through. " :smile:

That is awesome!

I think you are on the right track.

Fujioka-san is the leading authority and to get kebari from him?

Excellent opportunity.

The work I have done in my collection of kebari includes some of his work.

I know this excitement and I’m glad that you find value in it.
