Chris Stewart wrote a post over at his TenkaraBum shop regarding consumer purchasing habits that was quite fascinating. While Chris claims that the Suntech Kurenai HM30R is a wildly popular (and briskly selling rod), conversely people don’t seem to have the same affection, or perhaps awareness, for its bigger brother the HM39R.
The gang at Tenkara Rod Co. have been teasing everyone that follows them on social media about their upcoming film, TenkarAlaska. Looking forward to the full-length film, but in the meantime, this short trailer hit YouTube yesterday.
It definitely shows that tenkara is only capable of catching small fish….
Isaac Tait, author of the Fallfish Tenkara website/blog, has contributed some very entertaining essays to the last two issues of Tenkara Angler. For those that frequent his site, his skills as a wordsmith come as no surprise.
Recently, Isaac published a new post to Fallfish Tenkara, Overlanding & Tenkara, in which he chronicled a recent trip where he took some friends on an off-road adventure through the Tanzawa Mountains of Japan. Wonderful writing & photos!
Discovering new, productive water is one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences an angler can have. Mike from Badger Tenkara recently discovered “Sweetwater Canyon” and took us along on the journey in a recent blog post.
Japanese outdoor lifestyle brand South2 West8 has published their Spring 2016 Fish & Bike look book on their website. Featuring some beautiful on stream & trail photography, if you enjoy tenkara, trout, and fat tire bikes, this will be your speed.
A few observations in paging through; appears South2 West8 offers a co-branded Sakura Kongo tenkara rod as well as some “tenkara specific” shirt/jackets that accommodate a collapsed rod.
