Luong Tam of Tenkara Tanuki teased an upcoming collaboration with Jeff Lomino (Riverworks) on a limited edition of his popular Snow Tanuki rods.
“Here is a first Prototype Mockup for Snow Tanuki 375 Custom grip. Next step will be selection Color Cork …. More to come. It is going to be very limited — We are planing for no more than a Dozen of Snow 375 2016 Special Edition. Price: less than or about $400 USD.”
Luong is designing some beautiful rods. If you are not familiar, they are worth checking out.
Zen Tenkara‘s VP of Public Relations & Product Development (& contributor to the Spring 2016 issue of Tenkara Angler) Paul Vertrees released a short video yesterday teasing a new “Made in Colorado” floating tenkara line.
Visual details are a bit difficult to make out in the footage, but based on his description it appears to be another solid option for those who opt for floating tenkara lines.
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.
