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.

As usual, it will be available as a free e-magazine over at Issuu, HERE.

And also available for sale as a physical magazine and PDF download in the Blurb bookstore, HERE.

Enjoy!

Two Week Warning: Winter 2017-18 Submission Deadline December 8th

If this were a forum or social media site, I guess you could consider this post a “bump” reminding everybody that we are now 2 weeks away from the submission deadline for the Winter issue of Tenkara Angler.

If you were considering submitting and just aren’t sure what topics are appropriate or how to do it, feel free to email me at your convenience at mike@tenkaraangler.com, and I’d be happy to walk you through the process.  Additional details can be found HERE.

Winter 2017-18 Issue: Call For Submissions

No.09 (1)

Do you feel that chill in the air?  I’ve seen photos of (gasp) snow in certain areas of the country already, and even down here in the South, folks are reaching for their flannel & jackets. As such, I figured it was time to officially extend the “call for submissions” for the Winter issue of Tenkara Angler magazine.

I know there’s a lot going on right now – it’s been a very busy year for tenkara fishing – for those both new and not so new to the sport.

As such, 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 December 8th, 2017, with the target publishing date toward the end of that same month, right around the holidays!

2017 Tenkara Jam

Thought it only proper to send out a quick post this morning, as a follow-up to this past weekend’s Tenkara Jam in Boone, North Carolina. Simply wanted to express extreme gratitude to all that participated; be it from an attendee, presenter, vendor, and (of course) organizer standpoint. The tenkara community came together as one and showed very well, we should all be extremely proud of the Jam.

I also can’t say enough about the many jobs Jason Sparks took on wonderfully as host, emcee, and educator, and if he’s considering “running it back” in 2018, Tenkara Angler would love to participate again.

As a reader, if you’re new to the magazine (& website) as a by-product of the Jam, welcome. It’s great to have you here!

Since Tenkara Angler was referenced in several of the presentations, I also thought I’d list some of the links to articles that were specifically mentioned for easy referral.

As a matter of fact, most of the presenters and vendors have contributed to Tenkara Angler in one form or another since the magazine’s inception in 2015. If you’d like to page through the various back-issues at your leisure, they are best accessed for free, HERE.
