New tenkara video

Tenkara is a new type of fishing to the US, and information (particularly in English) is sparse. This is the place to build a knowledge base of Tenkara.

There is a new tenkara video out, by Steve Schweitzer, author of A Fly Fishing Guide to Rocky Mountain National Park and starring Karel Lansky (goneflyfishing).

Great video. It's a lot of fun having more and more Tenkara videos and resources at our fingertips everyday that goes by. Thanks for sharing Chris.

The best fisherman is the one having the most fun!

That was fun just watching them fish. Karel really did a great job explaining what tenkara is all about.

Thanks guys! We had a blast doing the video and Steve is a new Tenkara convert.

We got a bit nervous 2h into shooting and no fish hooked/landed. I had a number of takers but they were LDR'd very quickly. Glad the action picked-up towards the end of the day.

Funny that the fist fish landed in the video is a tiny brown trout, you can't hear it but I was yelling at Steve: "I got a sardine!!!!"

There should be a part II in the future, heading up to fish RMNP....
Live long and fly fish.

Thanks fotofisher,
I enjoyed your videos. Tomorrow I'll take the youngest nephews out for some canoe fishing in the local lake. And let them have a Tenkara try.
