Fall 2018 Issue: Call For Submissions

submissions-fall-2018

Admittedly, the Tenkara Angler blog has been a little bit quiet since the Summer issue went to print. We’ve just been enjoying the summer so much, who has had time to write?

So, today we’ll “officially” open up the Fall 2018 issue for submissions (although it’s really never officially closed).

Personally, I’d really love to see some more long-form essays, as I’m certain you’ve all had a lot of great Spring & Summer adventures, tenkara rods in-hand. Maybe it was that long camping weekend with family & friends… perhaps you did a fish & bike trip… caught a new species of trout… or even visited one of our National Parks.

As always, any and all topics are fair game – fishing reports, gear reviews or releases, destination travel, essays, poetry, fiction, photography, art, whatever – as long as it’s tenkara, fixed-line fly fishing, or conservation related.

Similar to prior issues, the tenkara community will craft the contents of the issue.

(And don’t forget, if you are a company that submits content, please don’t hesitate to also submit an ad for your services; inclusion is the least I can do).

If you are interested in contributing, I’ve outlined some simple parameters for content submission HERE.

The deadline for content submission will be September 7th, 2018 (give or take a few days), with the target publishing date toward the end of that same month.

EDITORS NOTE:
Since things have been a little slow on the website, I’m going to begin to re-publish all of the great articles from the Fall 2016 issue of Tenkara Angler to the blog as standalone posts. Not only will they be a great opportunity to revisit some top notch content from two years ago, but they may also serve as inspiration for future articles as well.

Make sure to subscribe by email (check the left-hand side of the page for the box to enter your address) to be notified of new posts and content.

The Summer 2018 Issue of Tenkara Angler Is Now Live!

It’s my pleasure to announce that the Summer 2018 issue of Tenkara Angler magazine is now live!

Tenkara Angler - Summer 2018

Since this magazine is crowd-sourced, it’s always interesting to see what folks decide to send in, and the content compilation for this issue was no different.

While the backbone of the magazine is still solidly based in tenkara & trout, it was fascinating to see the amount of (warm water) fixed line fly fishing articles that came in this time around. There was an interesting read on chasing carp with a tenkara rod, two separate (but related) articles on catfish, bass, & bluegill, and finally, an awesome “destination” piece that takes us to Alabama for “‘Bama brookies.” You’ll have to read it to see what that’s all about…

It’s also worth noting that about 3/4 of the authors were new to Tenkara Angler with this issue. While you’ll get to “meet” them in the pages, I did want to give a shout out to returning authors Adam Klagsbrun, John-Paul Povilaitis, Brad Trumbo, Robb Chunco, Jack Harford, & Anthony Naples. The magazine wouldn’t be where it is without your dedication.

Summer 2018 Issue: Call For Submissions

SUMMER 2018ISSUE

Did you enjoy the Spring issue? Are you ready for the next one?

Today we’ll “officially” open up the Summer 2018 issue for submissions (although it’s really never officially closed). I’m really optimistic about this next issue, as there are already two good articles in hand…

As always, any and all topics are fair game – fishing reports, gear reviews or releases, destination travel, essays, poetry, fiction, photography, art, whatever – as long as it’s tenkara, fixed-line fly fishing, or conservation related. Similar to prior issues, the tenkara community will craft the contents of the issue.

I’m headed to the Midwest Tenkara Fest in Wisconsin in early May, so I’m going to try and get some interesting material for the next issue (& Tenkara Angler’s social media) there. Fingers crossed…

(And don’t forget, if you are a company that submits content, please don’t hesitate to also submit an ad for your services; inclusion is the least I can do).

If you are interested in contributing, I’ve outlined some simple parameters for content submission HERE.

The deadline for content submission will be June 8th, 2018 (give or take a few days), with the target publishing date toward the end of that same month.

Spring 2018 Issue: Call For Submissions

TA Spring 2018

Believe it or not, it’s mid-February already, and even though January went by ridiculously fast and it feels like the Winter issue of Tenkara Angler was just released, I figured it was time to officially extend the “call for submissions” for the Spring 2018 issue.

I’ve certainly been itching to get out on the water again, it’s just starting to warm up a bit where I live, so I think it’s time for all those flies I tied to get wet.

If you’re feeling the same, we’d love to hear what you’ve got to say – any and all topics are fair game – fishing reports, gear reviews, destination travel, essays, poetry, fiction, photography, art, whatever – as long as it’s tenkara or conservation related. Similar to prior issues, the tenkara community will craft the contents of the issue.

(And don’t forget, if you are a company that submits content, please don’t hesitate to also submit an ad for your services, inclusion is the least I can do).

If you are interested in contributing, I’ve outlined some simple parameters for content submission HERE.

The deadline for content submission will be March 9th, 2018 (give or take a few days), with the target publishing date toward the end of that same month.

The Winter 2017-18 Issue of Tenkara Angler is Live!

It’s my pleasure to announce that the Winter 2017-18 issue of Tenkara Angler magazine is (finally) live!

TA Cover Winter 2017-18

This issue covers several topics but focuses quite a bit on off-stream tenkara pursuits. Since the weather is cold, most people can’t get out and fish, but it doesn’t mean they can’t prepare for next season. The Winter issue features a fly tying feature, highlighting favorites from 5 different tyers, a complete DIY on tamo (net) building, a workout plan to get you “Tenkara Fit”, as well as some recommended books to read (once you’re done with the magazine of course).

In addition, you’ll find all the phenomenal essays, destination stories, photography, art, poetry, etc… you’re accustomed to reading in each issue.
