Beginners Tenkara the fun way!

Welcome to beginners tenkara. I want to offer the beginning tenkara angler a path to becoming proficient in the practice of tenkara as a viable form of fly fishing. If you are a more experienced tenkara angler there will be many items that will be useful as well.

I have done my best to break down the lessons available into a coherent progression with the chance for the evolving tenkara angler to modify their own search for their own Ten Colors of Tenkara!

I always welcome comments or suggestions for additions to the Beginners Section. Leave a comment on this page or send me an email through my Contact page.
