With this post, I’d like to officially make the “call for submissions” for the Winter 2018-19 issue of Tenkara Angler magazine. The deadline for content will be Friday, December 7th, 2018, with the target publication date either in late December or early January.
As usual, more details can be found here:
The theme of this quarter’s issue will focus on two areas: traditional tenkara and/or tenkara art.
So let’s dig out some stories about your adventures in high gradient, headwater streams in search of native trout… possibly your favorite kebari or wet fly tying recipe… some details of coldwater conservation efforts from your home waters… or a photograph, sketch, painting, or even poem that’s tenkara-themed; involving any combination of mountains, forest, & fish.
Please don’t misinterpret this quarter’s theme as a knock against fixed-line fly fishing techniques, such as bead-head nymphs & streamers, or even an indictment of warm water species such as bass, carp, or bluegill. Please continue to send in your stories of those subjects, I’d simply like to try and curate and focus an issue for the winter months that mostly pivots back toward the core of tenkara technique, not a tenkara rod as a tool. Hopefully, that small ask will not sour either the readers or content creators toward the upcoming Winter issue.
As always, I’m extremely humbled and thankful for all of the participation in and support behind Tenkara Angler magazine. We have a wonderful community of tenkara & fixed-line anglers, one I feel fortunate to play a small role in celebrating.
Editor, Tenkara Angler
