No, the future isn’t that grim. Simply wanted to post a “2 Week” reminder of the submission deadline for the Fall 2017 Issue of Tenkara Angler.

We’ve received a handful of articles and photos so far, including a very interesting one on competition tenkara, so really looking forward to having you join us as part of the next magazine!

For a refresher on how to submit your article, photograph, artwork, gear review, etc… please check out the Submission Guidelines section of the site, HERE.

Fall 2017 Issue: Call For Submissions

I hope everybody is enjoying their Summer. I honestly can’t believe it went by so fast. Here in Florida we start school early (& end early) so my daughter actually goes back on Thursday… crazy.

With Fall on the horizon, I wanted to officially extend the “call for submissions” for the Fall issue of Tenkara Angler magazine. I’m certain everybody’s done some fishing, tied some flies, or wiggled a new rod over the past few months, now’s the time to spill the beans on your adventures! Personally, I plan on writing up a short piece on the Tenkara Bug Out in Oakridge, Oregon.

Actually, 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 September 8th, 2017, with the target publishing date toward the end of that same month (as long as a trip to the Tenkara Summit doesn’t get in the way!)

Summer 2017 Issue (is almost here)

Very happy to say that the Summer 2017 submission deadline came and went with a bang. Had a nice amount of diverse submissions this go-round (thank you!) and I am currently in the process of formatting, paginating, and all that good stuff to prepare the Summer issue for publication on June 26th (fingers crossed).

In the meantime, please feel free to view any of our back issues, including the Summer 2016 magazine, which had great articles on tenkara fishing for white bass, stripers, BIG fish tactics, tying the Pass Lake wet fly, among other outstanding essays and photography.

Summer 2017 Issue: Call For Submissions

Today I wanted to officially open up the submission window for the Summer 2017 issue of Tenkara Angler magazine. There’s tons of Spring fishing going on all over the country and with the Summer issue ahead, it makes for an awesome opportunity to tell some stories!

SUMMER SUBMISSIONS (2)

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.

Headed to the Midwest Tenkara Fest, or possibly the History of Japanese Tenkara Rods presentation in the Catskills in May? Would love to have reports from those events!

(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 9th, 2017, with the target publishing date toward the end of that same month.

Some 2017 Spring Issue Stats

With the Spring issue now live for about a week, I thought I’d share some readership statistics. I’m pretty much in awe as to the response to this issue, and since you, the community provides the content, figured you might be interested.

2017-04-02 17_20_38-Publisher Tools - issuu

The Spring Issue has…

  • Been Viewed 2,825 times
  • Been Read 1,345 times  (a read means somebody spent time inside)
  • Been Read on average 8:01 minutes per sitting
  • Referred 121 outgoing clicks from links within the issue (the most popular of which was the link at the end of the Jean Santos Line Winders article)
  • Purchased in physical or digital form 13 times (thank you!)

I honestly don’t know if those numbers are good or bad in the grand scheme of things (I didn’t think far enough ahead to save prior issue stats to benchmark against as my “free” reporting only goes back 30 days).

I do know that in aggregate, Tenkara Angler magazine has been read almost 30,000 times. Not quite as impressive as the 1,000,000+ views of Tenkara USA’s initial video, but still very, very rad, and I’m totally humbled that people seem to really enjoy the content.

Thank you for the support, and please, use the comments section below for any suggestions for future issues!
