You are probably rightly thinking I have been neglecting the blog for sometime. But, I hope you’re not thinking anything along the lines of, “tenkara is simple, he must have run out of things to say.” That’s not the case at all. You see, the difficult thing about creating content is usually that there is so much to say and so many places I want to feature what I write. And, there are only so many times in the day I can do so. Plus, there are some exciting projects coming along that you will see soon. I’ll keep my mouth shut about those until they are launched though.
For now, I wanted to share some writing I have been doing for my friend Louis Cahill at Gink & Gasoline. Louis has been a big supporter of Tenkara USA and asked me to contribute some writing. I couldn’t say no. Now, the good thing about Louis is that he’s really good at following up with me and making sure I deliver him some content. It’s like having a boss; I’m finding out that when left to my own devices I sometimes choose to go fishing rather than writing.
Since June of last year I have written several pieces on tenkara for Gink & Gasoline. Actually, just today he published another article I wrote for him, one that I believe you would like to read too, which is about sinking flies without using weight.
Another article you may want to read that I wrote for G&G recently is Invisible Waters. Ah, and I should mention that Tim Harris, a customer of ours and devout tenkara angler, has written a couple of pieces too.
I expect to get back in the groove of writing on our own blog pretty soon, but for now enjoy the work that has only been possible due to the whipping provided by my good friend Louis.
