    The 2016 Tenkara Magazine is the 3rd Tenkara Magazine published by Tenkara USA, and they only keep getting better. With contributions by all our teachers in Japan and several carefully selected stories by tenkara anglers, this issue provides a fascinating read that covers how-to's, culture, philosophy and much more. The theme of the magazine is "tenkara flies", with some neat pieces on flies and materials, but it features a wide-range of stories.

    The Tenkara Magazine has no advertising, and offers us 98 pages of delightful writing and imagery.

    I like using my tenkara gear to catch: Medium size fish (12-16" / 30-40cm)
    I like using my tenkara rod in: Very small streams, Larger streams or rivers, Stillwater

    Where I may fish some small narrow streams, the Tenkara gets to places easier.

    I really have been enjoying this magazine, it has been fulfilling my new fascination with tenkara and is a great read. I would recommend it if you already finished the book.
