This weekend Tenkara USA was present at the Spey-O-Rama event at the pools of the Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club.
The event attracted a large crowd. When stopping by our table and learning about tenkara, most people quickly exclaimed the, “this would be great for backpacking”, and “I know some streams where this would be just perfect!”.
Guests got to try several different tenkara rods and quickly learned the way of casting with a tenkara rod – just a bit slower and with a shorter stroke, many likened it to casting with a bamboo rod and a shorter stroke. Most people were amazed with the lighteness of the rods and the fact that they are telescopic.
