Tenkara featured in the New York Times!!!

Tenkara featured in the New York Times!!!

A major milestone for tenkara in the US. Yesterday an article on tenkara was published in the New York Times! It is inevitable that after the period of intrigue, and reluctance, tenkara would work its way to become a well established method of fly-fishing.

The article was very well written by Mr. James Card, who met with Ms. Misako Ishimura for a day of tenkara fishing. It talked about the story of its introduction to the US, with the participation of Tenkara USA and its founder (me), Misako Ishimura, Chris "Tenkara Bum" Stewart, and Dr. Ishigaki, of course.
