Check out these videos of Mike’s battles with this extremely aggressive fish and maybe you’ll be interested in heading to Costa Rica tenkara rod in hand as well…
Several iterations of the Fishing Cafe featuring Dr. Ishigaki have been making the rounds of social media. I thought it would be nice to post the full-length, 52-minute version here, for ease of locating. (A shorter 11-minute cut can also be found).
While it is a Japanese-language film, they were kind enough to subtitle it in English. Hope you enjoy the show!
Fishing Café is the show that introduces fishing techniques in Japan. In this episode, Hisao Ishigaki takes us on a journey to discover the secrets of the Japanese fly fishing style, Tenkara. With only a rod, the line, and a fly, Tenkara is one of the simplest ways of fishing and has gained much popularity over recent years. Despite this modern phenomenon, Tenkara has been around in Japan over 100 years. Dr. Ishigaki takes us to learn the history behind this simple yet deep technique of Japanese fly fishing.
In perhaps one of the first significant applications of the Facebook Live Broadcast feature amongst the tenkara community, Tenkara USA founder Daniel Galhardo will be hosting a live video stream from Boulder Creek (Colorado), on Wednesday, June 8th.
The stream will speak about tenkara, do some live demonstrations, as well as attempt to answer any viewer-submitted questions. Galhardo ballparked the video stream to last about an hour to an hour and a half.
The broadcast will begin at 10pm Mountain Time, which also happens to place it ideally during the lunch hour on the East Coast. To join, visit the Tenkara USA Facebook page.
See you on the stream!

The 2016 Midwest Tenkara Fest was held in Coon Valley, WI over the weekend. With many eager attendees (both new & experienced in tenkara) on hand, it was a busy two days for the multiple presenters and vendors.
The next issue of Tenkara Angler magazine will include a full recap of the show, however in the meantime, please enjoy this local news coverage of the event.
