Mainstream mentions of tenkara continue to spread, this time by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s coverage of the Midwest Tenkara Fest.
Check out the article HERE to get feedback from the event’s organizers, as well as the mysterious “Tenkara Gandalf”…
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.
