Tenkara at The Fly Fishing Show(s)

After 3 years in business we have decided it was time to come out of our shell a bit and get both our feet wet at the Fly Fishing Shows! Well, one foot wet first as we support our dealers in Colorado and Massachusetts in their booths, and then both feet … in no waders but hoping the water will be warm as we hold our own booth at the Somerset, NJ show and likely the Pleasanton, CA show. Journalist and tenkara enthusiast Morgan Lyle picked up on these news a couple of weeks ago and wrote an article about the historic news!

This is the year tenkara will dominate the Fly Fishing Show route and we look forward to your presence and support.

    Thats fantastic. Congratulations on expanding your influence.

  2. Jeremy says:

    Finally after almost a year of fishing Tenkara. Gave out two ambassador cards. And showed four fellow fishers Tenkara and let them cast. The people all heard of Tenkara before but never tried it. I think it’s definitely spreading.

  3. Grant Volk says:

    That’s awesome that you’ll be appearing at the Fly Fishing Shows. You better come out and represent in Pleasanton – I hope to see you and the Tenkara mobile there!

    The fly fishing show in Somerset is always the same weekend as the NJ Winter Hammock Hang in the Pine Barrens. I hate having to choose between hammock camping and Tenkara. Well, I’m going to try to get out early on Sunday morning to make it up there as it would be great to meet you and Chris in person.

    I sure wish you could make the show in Lancaster, PA. I’d show you some of my favorite tenkara spots!
