Writer Morgan Lyle wrote a nice article about the introduction of tenkara in the US for the New York based newspaper, The Daily Gazette. The article can be seen here: Daily Gazette – Tenkara Article
Mr. Lyle pulled a very relevant quote from Izaak Walton’s book The Compleat Angler, “You must be sure not to cumber yourself with too long a line, as most do.”, which somehow we missed, but is most relevant for tenkara and a good reminder to most anglers.
The article also mentions the event that is happening next week in the Catskills.
The Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum in Livingston Manor will host a talk on tenkara by Dr. Hisao Ishigaki at 1 p.m. May 23 as part of the opening of the museum’s new exhibit, “Made in Japan.” Ishigaki will also demonstrate tenkara on the Willowemoc Creek in the center’s front yard.
We’ll also be present with tenkara rods for guests to try.
