Great information in the book, bought my first rod late spring and was trying to teach myself the right way to fish tenkara. This book is a great reference on how to properly fish, wish I had this when I started fishing.
This book contains everything you’d need to know to start and to be successful at Tenkara. The information is presented well and kept me interested. I’d highly recommend to anyone want to know anything about Tenkara.
I got this book as a gift along with my first tenkara rod. It was really felphul for learning the art of tenkara, but it's also just a great coffee table book. It's one of the first ones that gets picked up when I have company over.
