I am currently in Japan and will be creating podcast episodes as I travel around experiencing tenkara with my teachers and in different parts of the country. Stay tuned for new episodes every 2-3 days to hear more about my travels in Japan in search of tenkara. Episodes will be posted in this page along with more images.
Despite a cold, a scalding hot spring, and language barriers the experience in Hokkaido has been positive overall. Rainbows, Amemasu and oshorokoma have been some of our catches. In this episode I also reflect on the poor treatment of fish in Japan and talk about the experience in general. We still have a few hours of fishing in Hokkaido tomorrow morning before I leave, so it’s not over yet. I hope to publish the next episode around July 1st (give or take a day).
Today I arrived and did some fishing in Hokkaido, home to some very large trout. Here are some first impressions before I hit the hay, it is past midnight here and I just recorded this.
