Here are two fun episodes on tenkara made for the TV show “Lip’em & Rip’em”. The video was shot last year in the Minturn area of Colorado. The hosts of the show saw in tenkara a simple fly fishing method and invited me to participate. In these episodes we go through a very comprehensive view of tenkara. We talk about the tenkara rods, the philosophy behind the tenkara flies and then, how to catch and land a LOT of large trout (without ever throwing our rod in the water!)
Enjoy it, and share it with friends. Make sure to click on the gear icon and select 720 for high-definition resolution.
As you can see here, you should never have to throw your tenkara rod in the water! At least not a Tenkara USA rod.
