Tenkara is the ancient, traditional form of Japanese fly-fishing. It’s a simple method using only a rod, a line and a fly.
My first experience with Tenkara was years ago when I worked at Powell’s Fly Shop. I guided a Japanese gentleman on one of the local creeks. We fished the American style of fly-fishing. After landing many fish and having a great day, he opened up this custom leather case and proceeded to use his Tenkara rod. He showed me how to use it, a guide being guided – amazing! As the three day guide trip grew to a close he was gracious enough to leave me his Tenkara rod as my tip.
Tenkara is a well suited method for fly-fishing small mountain streams. It’s delicate presentations, ease of cast, precise cast and being able to place the fly in trout holding areas is terrific. It’s a simple elegance. Our one day Tenkara workshop will introduce you to Tenkara. All Tenkara equipment is provided and only two students per instructor.
