Tienlon Ho writes about the story of Daniel Galhardo taking her niece tenkara fishing in the Sierra Nevada of California. "The basic tenkara cast looks a lot like a Western fly cast, with the advantage that a tenkara angler can cast tight, aerodynamic loops with just one hand. Because it relies on the rod's flexibility, it requires a lot less power. This allows even an inexperienced angler to cast a fly softly and control the line in the current more deftly than is possible with a Western rod. "

Daniel Galhardo and Tenkara USA covered in a story by Tienlon Ho on High Country News and Adventure Journal.
