From my balcony I can see Tokyo Bay, which is one of the top 10 busiest ports in the world. Millions of tons of cargo pass through this narrow bay every year, rain, or shine. Yesterday we received 5+ inches of rain on Miura Peninsula and the local mountains received up to 10 inches of rain (I am keeping my fingers crossed that some of that rain became snow in the Alps – if so there should be enough of a base for an early season backcountry ski trip). As the storm moved on this morning the winds picked up kicking sea spray 10 meters into the sky, the rising sun lit up the spray casting a golden mist across the bay. It was a sight to behold.
In other news I just received my Tenkara USA Ito rod last night. I was hoping to break it in today on a Tenkara trip I was scheduled to guide, but I had to cancel the trip due to the epic amount of rain we’ve received in the last 24 hours.
So without further ado here is a video blog of the unboxing event for my newest Tenkara rod – the Tenkara USA Ito Rod!!
It is the second softest rod I own, and my first zoom rod. Here are the Tenkara rod’s specs in case you were curious. I cannot wait to get this work of art out on the river and see her in action!
