It’s time again to reach out to you, the incredibly awesome tenkara community, particularly those creative souls that may have an interest in submitting content to the upcoming Fall 2016 issue of Tenkara Angler magazine. As before, the e-magazine will remain completely “crowdsourced;” reader submissions and agendas shape the content, I only serve the role as curator and editor as a labor of love for this method of fly fishing.
Please feel free to write about whatever tenkara-related topics that you see fit. For inspirational purposes, I’ve listed a few topics below:
Did you fish tenkara on your summer vacation?
Did you try out any new gear – a new rod, line, or fly?
Did you meet up with any online friends on-stream?
Did you catch any new species, what did you use to catch them?
Did you stumble upon a good DIY tenkara hack?
Maybe you’re just feeling creative through art, photography, or essay?
Those are just a few ideas, as always, anything & everything tenkara-related is fair game!
If you are interested in contributing, I’ve outlined some simple parameters for content submission on the Tenkara Angler website HERE.
The deadline for content submission will be September 9th, 2016, with the target publishing date toward the end of that same month.
The contributions continue to get stronger with each new edition, I would sincerely love to have you as a part of the next issue!
While there was much ado last week about Tenkara USA’s new tapered line, there’s also been quite a stir in the line holder department.
On June 18th, UK-based Esoteric Tackle announced their new ESO Silica line spools. These look pretty interesting, as they not only hold line, but also integrate a small fly box into the spool. Plus, they’re priced extremely reasonably.
Jason Klass covered the release of this new little widget on his Tenkara Talk blog yesterday, essentially a connector that makes two spools of level line into one. It’s kind of an interesting system, one to hold bulk line, rather than line already cut and in use on your rod.
The theme was “Summer Fishing” and a lot of great content was included to captivate and inspire. Excellent articles by returning writers such as John Vetterli, Sam Larson, Paul Gaskell, Adam Klagsbrun, & Chris Stewart sit alongside wonderful new entries from Steve Cobb, Daniel Galhardo, Dennis Coppock, Andy Wayment, and David West Beale, just to name a few… A total of 29 articles over 108 pages awaits your discovery.
We’ve got BIG FISH tips, White Bass, Striped Bass, and tons of flies & kebari to go catch them. Oh, and at the end, you can wash it all down with some Brookies & Beer!
