Hirata-san Bundle Explained

Below you can see exactly what's in our latest bundle (and the offer which runs out tonight)...

Before that, some messages that I received in the last few days have really made all the blood sweat and tears over the last 6 months definitely worthwhile:

"Paul,

Thank you this rare opportunity to see and learn from a Master. The price was awesome at $45.00 dollars.
Everything you have produced is top drawer and a big thank you for your efforts and commitment to Traditional
Japanese Tenkara. I'm a loyal customer and supporter of you and John.

Sincerely,"
Mike Shelton, VA USA

"Yet another brilliant package produced by Paul and John. Watch the videos, read the books and listen to the audio books, then do it all again, there is so much information contained in this bundle that it is just not possible to take it all in in one go. Hirata- san’s approach to fly choice and tactics are a bit different to the norm but once you get your head around it they make perfect sense. Anyone who has spent as long on the river, as a very successful professional angler, deserves to be listened to. I am just grateful that people like Hirata-san are generous enough to pass on their hard won knowledge.  Even if you never hand furl your own horse hair line or tie flies by hand you will enjoy watching a true master at work. He makes it seem so easy, but I suppose that’s what a true craftsman does. If anyone is interested in Tenkara then they will get a lot from this bundle, you don’t have to use his tactics but they certainly give you food for thought. The quality of the production is up to their usual standard – exceptional"

What's in the Bundle?

There are 4 downloadable MP4 Videos: "Hirata san in his own words", "Tenkara with Hisanobu Hirata - Onstream demonstration and analysis", "Hirata-san's "no tools" kebari tying demonstration", "Hirata-san's Horsehair line-making demonstration". That last video captures the exact moment that we found out the expression "otsuri" for the effects of your casting line that reduce your effective fishing range...

There are 3, fully illustrated PDF E-books: "On-stream with Hirata-san: Tenkara skills of a Shokuryoshi" - the guide to his on-stream tactics and understanding his whole approach, "Hirata-san's Kebari Box: No Vice Fly tying and Picking the Right Pattern", "Making Horsehair lines with Hirata-san"

There are 3 Audiobooks of the E-books: "On-stream with Hirata-san: Tenkara skills of a Shokuryoshi" - the guide to his on-stream tactics and understanding his whole approach, "Hirata-san's Kebari Box: No Vice Fly tying and Picking the Right Pattern", "Making Horsehair lines with Hirata-san"

Here's a brief overview of what you'll get and also the time-limited special offer (ending tonight):

CLICK THE BUY NOW button now and we’ll be delighted to welcome you into the exclusive membership area where all the items in your bundle live (along with explanatory notes and any updates and improvements that we make). The access details are sent via email (so CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDER or "PROMOTIONS" TAB IF YOUR LOGIN DETAILS DON'T ARRIVE WITHIN A MINUTE OR SO)

Here's the guided tour of the membership site area (accessed once you log in using the details emailed to you after a confirmed purchase is made):

 You'll learn:

  • How to create your own perfectly "balanced" horse-hair fly line in about 20 minutes (from scratch and without any special tools)
  • How to tie brilliantly-effective flies without a bobbin, without a vice and only using a cutting blade to trim the end of the thread when finished (includes diagrams of the special knots and whipping that make this technique work)
  • Choosing where in the fish's mouth and how to best set the hook to REDUCE the number of fish you lose during play
  • Drawing fish up to your fly where you can watch them take it (a very satisfying way to improve bite detection!)
  • Tying just a handful of fly patterns and how bring them to LIFE with skilful presentation (each fly with a particular “job” that they do)
  • Making the line and rod work together AND work with your grip and arm position to create accurate casts and enticing fly manipulations – these are the most satisfying sensations in fly fishing and tenkara
  • Getting your flies and presentations to stand out from those of the Average Joe (just by making small tweaks to the way things are usually done)
  • Selecting an effective fly pattern by looking AT THE RIVERBED and then looking AT THE SKY to choose the shade of body
  • You'll also learn the story of Hirata-san's "Mamushi" snake-skin kebari and catching 109 fish on it in a day after years of testing with his many students

If you like the sound of having those abilities yourself, then up until midnight EST July 19th, there is a massive discount ($45 or ~£33 reduced from $109) on the 10-piece download bundle that explains the details of Hirata-san’s fly choice tactics, fly tying methods, horsehair line-making instructions and onstream casting, presentation and pro-level hook setting skills.

Short of getting the entire Season 1 of TIF in one grab, this is hands-down the biggest-value package John and Paul have produced to date... and an almost compulsory purchase at the intro price!

The amount of content is equivalent to about three episodes of TIF, and while each piece can stand alone on its own merits, they compliment and support one another in such a way that the whole is far greater than just the sum of its parts. Can't wait to put the many things I've learned from this bundle to practice on the water!

I agree with John and Peter I've purchase the bundle already and have overlooked the material and there's so much in it to learn. Thanks for all your hard work. Stewart tidelines everyone and don't forget, TOA Triangle Of Awesomeness
