An Introduction to Tenkara Fishing A Welcome

by October 11, 2012 2 comments

First off, welcome to the wonderful world of Tenkara. You are about to enter into an experience like no other.But, be forewarned, you may be thinking that you want to start a new hobby. It will start as a hobby and will quickly grow into an obsession of huge magnitude.

The following is the beginning of a series on Tenkara. I will do my best to to give you all the cool details about this ancient form of Japanese fly fishing. My intention in this series will be to take you from Tenkara’s humble beginnings to what it is today. I will introduce you to the equipment that I have used as well as the techniques that I have found to be productive.

My ultimate goal of this series will be to allow you, as the reader, to learn what I can teach you and open the doors to additional avenues to find other cool stuff that goes along with Tenkara. Before you know it, you will become a member of an ever expanding family of Tenkara practitioners around the world. I will do my best to keep the series flowing but at times even the rivers of life slow and we need to take a break.

I look forward to hearing your comments and questions in the future.

P.S. Just a quick FYI. My lovely wife, Elizabeth and I will be taking our much needed honeymoon shortly and will be completely off the grid for 16 days. During this window I will have a few guest bloggers appearing for your reading pleasure. So check back often.

Regards and tight lines to all.

    Great post Daniel! I like the more flexible approach to the one fly concept. I've been practicing it all season and it really does work once you get the confidence.
