Tenkara in Fly Rod & Reel Magazine

Postby LMarshall » Sat Sep 12, 2009 8:36 pm

Yvon Chouinard (CEO of Patagonia, and Fly Rod & Reel's Angler of the Year) writes briefly about his experience with tenkara in a piece titled "Simple Gifts" in the latest issue of Fly Rod & Reel. He makes the case for a simpler approach to fly fishing, discussing bamboo rods, spey casting, tenkara, consumerism, and the profusion of gadgets and expensive high-tech gear in the sport. It's an interesting article, I'd recommend reading it.

I also saw a paragraph in September issue of Angling Trade magazine about Tenkara USA just introducing a new 13' model along with a reference to Daniel's site.

Thanks Daniel. I started to read it and saved it to my hard drive for later. So far it's a great article.

I first read about Tenkara about 5 weeks ago in the Bule Ribbon Flies E-letter. Yvon had just been fishing with Craig Mathews. Glad I did as my first rod is on the way.

I read Yvon's article and it is excellent.

There is more to it than the Tenkara reference...
