Misako will do a presentation about old Japanese flies, which will be added to the exhibit. You will be able to see them before they will be placed inside the case on the wall of the Museum. She will then do a PowerPoint presentation about old Japanese flies, including Tenkara, and how they differ from flies in the world.
At 1 p.m., after the lunch break, Misako will answer questions illustrated by demonstrations outside based on skills she honed fishing around the world .
Registration information will be posted shortly.
