Wow. What a wonderful video put together by Daniel Galhardo and Tenkara USA. It’s a little bit longer than most (over 8 minutes) but well worth the time:
From the video’s description: Mr. Yuzo Sebata is one of the most well-known tenkara anglers in Japan. He keeps his fly-fishing simple and enjoys backpacking in the mountains of Japan catching trout and foraging for mushrooms. When we went backpacking together, he brought along a very simple fly-tying kit, which he pulled out at our camp by the stream and proceeded to tie a fly. Watch to see how he ties flies without a vise and with very simple materials.
Rather than write a long-winded post, I decided to make a long-winded video about some of the updates around the Spring 2017 issue – including a general update on progress, a Cover Photo Contest, and Letters to the Editor.
Christophe Laurent posted a nice slide show video from the 2016 Tenkara Fest in France to YouTube a few days ago. Personally, I love looking at photos and video from other countries, as some things may be different, but the language of fishing in universal.
It’s no secret that Isaac Tait of Fallfish Tenkara has been a very big part of the success of Tenkara Angler magazine. His contributions to the various issues have been tremendous, and his content has brought us all a little bit closer to tenkara and culture in Japan.
The other day, Isaac posted a 2016 “Year in Review” post at Fallfish Tenkara. It’s full of photos, and specifically, the video also embedded below. Do yourself a favor and go over to his post by clicking THIS LINK as well as watching the associated video.
The video has beautiful sights from all over Japan, however, if you’re specifically interested in fishing footage, it begins around the 3:00 mark.
There’s no debate that Paul Gaskell & John Pearson from Discover Tenkara produce some of the highest-quality content on tenkara today. Whether it is through their Discover Tenkara website, free email tutorials, or educational materials such as books and videos, they have been at the forefront of cataloging not only the history but the basic and advanced techniques used to be a successful tenkara angler.
Today, they debut their new free video series entitled “Tenkara in Focus.” With over a half hour of footage from around the world, it’s a must watch for anyone with an interest in tenkara.
You may also happen to notice a familiar face/name about halfway through. I was fortunate enough to participate in their first episode with a report on behalf of Tenkara Angler magazine from the 2016 Tenkara Jam.
