has closed and has nothing left to sell, other than a few used books. I have decided to leave the website up as a resource for people interested in fishing with light rods, light lines and light lures - true finesse fishing.

I just discovered your website and am thrilled to see an American website knowledgeable about finesse fishing with Japanese gear for trout. I have only recently rediscovered the joy of trout fishing and, as of last fall, have been learning various techniques from a veteran Japanese angler where I live in Osaka, Japan. The sheer variety of reels, rods, lures etc. here in Japan is mind-boggling and to have access to information written in English is of great help.
