  1. Hi Matt,

    I won’t be in the area, but may watch online.

    …Will your presentation be geared toward novice anglers? intermediates? advanced tenkara anglers?

    Will you be covering both tightline nymphing with a tenkara rod and kebari fishing?

    Thank you,


    1. Hi Charlie –

      It will be an overview of the fundamental concepts and equipment and basic technique, intended as an introduction for those who may be unfamiliar or a recharge for those who want to refresh their understanding.

      Hope you’ll join us!
