Zoan Kulinski, 62, of Hustisford had been a fisherman all his life, including a fly angler for several decades.

He became a disciple of tenkara fishing in January 2015.

“It’s the simplicity of it,” Kulinski said. “I did ‘western’ fishing so long I had a vest full of stuff weighing me down. I’m too old for that.”

Kulinski used a hunting analogy to describe tenkara fishing.

“This is more like bowhunting, where you are fishing close and stealth is important,” Kulinski said.
