Japanese Angler’s Secrets
Slow pitch jigging really captured my imagination. Not only it’s effective as a fishing method, I was fascinated that it was well thought out in every details and everything can be explained logically.
Of course it was very difficult first. Sato Sensei’s DVD was the only source of my learning. I have been trapped in my misunderstandings. I have wasted my money on something I didn’t need. I’ve been in a fog but still it was fun learning.
It was my sheer passion to share this fishing style with the world when I started this project in February 2013.
I became an agent for Seafloor Control and started selling the jigs I love. Then so many people started asking me for other things too. I didn’t realize that Japanese products we take for granted here are so hard to reach for many parts of the world. So I started helping people purchase from Japanese shops for my 10% handling fee.
I’m a weekend angler. I’m not a pro. Or I’m not a retailer.
The fuel of this project is only my passion to share this game I love and help people have fun with it. Not to make it a big business. It’s a fun for me. I would like to keep it a fun. I make my living on other things.
Even though there are certain things I can’t do and there are some times that I can’t reply right away because I’m not a full-time retailer, I do live up to my responsibilities for those who trust me. And I really appreciate that so many people have trusted me and helped me grow this project.
