The Tenkara style of fishing was a revelation to me & had instant appeal for the streams I like to fish but sometimes struggle with conventional fly tackle. The Tenkara book is a fantastic resource for beginner Tenkara anglers: it is written with humility & respect, cleverly cross referenced to online resources, covers the history/equipment/stream craft/philosophy of Tenkara, it is wonderfully bound & edited with useful pictures & diagrams, I found myself explaining it to a number of interested people looking over my shoulder as I read it…an excellent reference.
Book has great information, BUT I wish it had a spiral binding, and wish the print was larger and darker on each page. Photos could be smaller as info is more important. Maybe a slightly larger book size to allow for larger print.
Very good book if you’re new to Tenkara.
The book is very insightful and helpful in learning Tenkara. I especially love the philosophy and knot tying sections.
