A few tenkara anglers have asked me to take underwater video of sakasa kebari in motion in “real world conditions”. This proved to be a slightly more daunting task than I imagined. Here’s my first attempt. I’ll be the first to admit it’s not a great. It’s difficult to position the camera the right way, in the right current, in the right water clarity, and show what a real tenkara presentation looks like. But, I’ve got some new equipment on the way that will help me make better underwater videos in the future so if you’re interested in seeing more underwater clips like this (and can live without Ralph Cutter perfection) stay tuned. In the meantime, here’s what I’ve got so far. As they say, it is what it is.
