Description

In tenkara - the book, Tenkara USA founder Daniel Galhardo shows just how simple fixed line fly-fishing can be. This book is a complete guide to the tenkara techniques, tenkara gear, history and philosophy of tenkara, and the method of fly-fishing of Japanese tenkara anglers.

Daniel brings tenkara anglers along on a journey of learning tenkara fishing directly from the tenkara masters in Japan as he shares information on the method‚ equipment and techniques. 

A tenkara angler picking up a tenkara fixed length line rod for the first time will find the concepts in the tenkara book well laid out and intuitive. Most tenkara anglers will appreciate the simpler approach to fly-fishing than Western fly-fishing and the advanced tenkara techniques shared in the book. tenkara - the book will demonstrate why tenkara has been adopted by many anglers to catch fish around the world.

Tenkara - the book is a tenkara fly-fishing guide designed to be interactive and take advantage of all the resources on tenkara fly-fishing we have created over the years. You’ll find information on tenkara rods, flies, tenkara lines, and tenkara techniques for catching fish to enhance your tenkara fly-fishing trip. Throughout the tenkara book, readers will find QR (quick read) codes that will give access to the videos, podcast episodes and other complementary information to the chapters at hand.

Simplicity, history, efficiency, style.

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.

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

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.
