Yuzo Sebata is one of the most recognized tenkara anglers in the world, residing in Japan, he fills the honorary guest editor position.

Keiichi Okushi, one of Sebata-san’s fishing friends has beautifully written “Stories of Genryu” which continues to teach Headwaters tenkara fishing from the country of origin. His lifelong knowledge of the equipment and his tenkara store, “TenkaraYa” makes Japanese Keiryu equipment easy to obtain.
