On Thursday I head to the East Coast to participate in a couple of Fly Fishing Shows. Please come by to check out tenkara. And, don’t miss the casting demonstrations – especially the ones right before Lefty Kreh’s!

Somerset, NJ Fly Fishing Show, January 27-29: This will be the big one! Not only is Somerset the biggest fly-fishing only show in the world, but Tenkara USA will be having its own booth! We will also count on the participation of Chris Stewart of the Tenkara Bum who will be manning the booth with Tenkara USA’s Daniel Galhardo. Our booth at this show will be for fun only! Come and hang out, tie a tenkara fly and learn more about tenkara – we will not be selling you anything! Instead, we are there to support our two dealers: Mossy Creek, and the Bear’s Den.
