Hi Mark,

Is this a photograph when you came to Japan?

The rod is AXISCO AIRRITE STREAM FIBER GLASS PACK ROD 10pc

Is not the shop here?

A place is Suwa-city of Nagano prefecture

Hi Hitoshi,

Yes! Exactly! You have good eyes! : ) This was the visit to Japan from last year, about the same time of the year. The Suwas region. I test the AXISCO a little bit and really love it... but I did not make a purchase decision though... good rod... expecially for that size... just amazing... : )

Wonderful rod Mark!! Sooner or later, I'll have to build one on "Made in Japan" blank. I wish we had those choices in the States...

I agree Vlad!

Combine your style with those cute blank... That would be a wonderful fishing tool! : )

I had a Axisco 3wt 7' 6 pieces rod before... and it was a great rod. Very soft and sweet feel. I gave it to my brother in order to lure him to the fiberglass world.. I think he loved it... an awesome rod for spring creeks...

Yes Mark...you should have that rod. Order one up for your upcoming summer trips!

Vlad...you would do wonders with a blank like this. How about a six piece Lamiglass blank?

Mark...that girl in the water looks like the "Japanese Hardy Girl" to me. HA...but change it to "The Axisco Girl".

Ha... Cameron,

Your comments always make me laugh out loud... : )

I become big fans of multi-pieces... it is quite an art to make things like that... indeed...
