This is our first introductory video and what set in motion the introduction of tenkara in the USA, over 700,000 views across the web, and more than 100 tenkara videos featuring technique and fishing adventures.
In May 2009 Daniel W. Galhardo, founder of Tenkara USA and Masaki Nakano went tenkara fly-fishing in the Sierra Nevada. Tenkara is the traditional Japanese method of fly-fishing, ideal for mountain streams. In tenkara one uses only a rod, line and fly, no reel is needed for stream fishing. Originally it was practiced by commercial/professional fishermen in the mountain streams of Japan, who used to catch fish for a living.
