Tenkara at 2018 Sowbug Roundup

Going fishing? Take a tenkara angler :) Or take a western fly-angler, show them tenkara fly-fishing, and brag about how you caught 5x more fish than they did (if they didn't take your tenkara rod from you that is).

Tenkara at 2018 Sowbug Roundup

Postby mtipton » Sat Dec 02, 2017 2:30 pm

The details of the Tenkara component of the 2018 Sowbug Roundup are getting firmed up. The confirmed vendors include Streamside Furled Leaders, Badger Tenkara, Three Rivers Tenkara, Tenkara USA, and the Tenkara Bum. The currently the seminar schedule for Tenkara is as follows:

Thursday, March 22
10:30 am – Alan Luecke: Multi species fishing in Midwestern waters using Tenkara
1:00 pm – Daniel Galhardo: An Introduction to Tenkara
2:30 pm – Anthony Naples: Tenkara Nymphing
Friday, March 23
9:30 am – Bob Long: Tenkara for Smallmouth Bass
Saturday, March 24
9:30 am – Matt Sment: An Introduction to “American” Tenkara
2:30 pm – Morgan Lyle: Simple Flys

Note that this schedule could change during the next three months during the runup to Sowbug. There are other fly fishing seminars scheduled during the show.

There will be special raffles and auctions for Tenkara gear.

The Sowbug Roundup will still include over 100 fly tyers from all over the world, including the USA, UK, and Japan, three days of seminars and hands-on classes, and special programs for kids. The Sowbug Roundup is still $5.00 for three days. Adults with kids under 12 are admitted free. The Sowbug Roundup takes place in the Baxter County Fairgrounds in Mountain Home Arkansas on March 22,23, and 24, 2018.

March is Spring in the Ozarks! The caddis hatch should be going hot and heavy with great soft hackle and dry fly fishing! Dry Run Creek, near Norfork Dam, provides youth (fifteen and under) and mobility impaired adults with world class fishing for big trout. Tenkara works great on Dry Run Creek!
