The theme was “Summer Fishing” and a lot of great content was included to captivate and inspire. Excellent articles by returning writers such as John Vetterli, Sam Larson, Paul Gaskell, Adam Klagsbrun, & Chris Stewart sit alongside wonderful new entries from Steve Cobb, Daniel Galhardo, Dennis Coppock, Andy Wayment, and David West Beale, just to name a few… A total of 29 articles over 108 pages awaits your discovery.

We’ve got BIG FISH tips, White Bass, Striped Bass, and tons of flies & kebari to go catch them. Oh, and at the end, you can wash it all down with some Brookies & Beer!

Summer 2016 Call For Submissions

With the help of some awesome contributions, we’ve e-published 3 issues so far, and the readership is growing with each! The online version of the Spring 2016 issue has accumulated over 16,000 views in the month or so it’s been live and I’d love to open up submissions for the Summer 2016 issue today.

Articles, photography, art, essays, “how-tos,” fly tying, travel, if it’s tenkara related, it’s all fair game. You don’t need to be a professional writer or photographer to participate, just willing to share. If you’re interested, (or even mildly curious), there’s more information on the submission process HERE.

The Spring 2016 issue is embedded below. There were a lot of fantastic contributions from across the tenkara community, would love to have you as a part of the next issue!

South2 West8: Fish & Bike Look Book #3

Japanese outdoor lifestyle brand South2 West8 has published their Spring 2016 Fish & Bike look book on their website. Featuring some beautiful on stream & trail photography, if you enjoy tenkara, trout, and fat tire bikes, this will be your speed.

A few observations in paging through; appears South2 West8 offers a co-branded Sakura Kongo tenkara rod as well as some “tenkara specific” shirt/jackets that accommodate a collapsed rod.

Tenkara Angler Magazine: Spring 2016

Today I’m pleased to announce the Spring 2016 issue of Tenkara Angler magazine has hit the virtual newsstands!

Tenkara Angler Spring 2016 w Table of Contents

I’m not going to lie, it took a little bit longer than anticipated to do all the editing, and I know I still made some mistakes (like the two page 42s listed in the table of contents – oops!), but it’s done, so I’m going to let out a big exhale…

However, none of that diminishes what I think turned out to be a pretty rad issue, one that’s quite a bit different from the last one.

A new logo (and interview of) Nick Cobler, tips on traveling abroad from Adam Klagsbrun, an awesome advanced casting installment by Rob Worthing, not to mention fly tying recipes from Tom Davis & Robb Chunco, essays from Paul Vertrees, Rob Lepczyk, Steven Smith, Sam Larson , and Diane Kelly-Riley…oh, and there’s even art from Jim Tignor and Anthony Naples. Plus other contributions that I’ll just leave as a surprise for when you open it up…

The Spring 2016 issue of Tenkara Angler magazine can be found for free online consumption via Issuu HERE, or for physical purchase via Blurb HERE.

It was a ton of fun to put together, I hope you enjoy!

Spring 2016 Call For Submissions

Tenkara Angler magazine is an online (& print) publication that launched as a test last Fall, and with a successful Winter follow up it appears like there’s enough interest to keep it around for a while. The magazine is completely “crowdsourced;” reader submissions shape the content, I only serve the role as curator and editor.

With that, I thought I’d extend a call for submissions for the Spring 2016 issue. Articles, photography, art, essays, “how-tos,” fly tying, destination travel, if it’s tenkara related, it’s all fair game.

You don’t need to be a professional writer or photographer to participate, just willing to share. If you’re interested, or even mildly curious, there’s more information on the submission process HERE.

The Winter 2015-16 issue is embedded below. There were a lot of great contributions from across the tenkara community, yours could be next!

Tenkara Angler Magazine: Winter 2015-16

Today I’m pleased to announce the second issue of Tenkara Angler magazine has hit the virtual newsstands!

Tenkara Angler Winter 2015-16

What’s new in the Winter 2015-16 issue? Actually quite a few things, the most noticeable being the fact that instead of simply assembling a bunch of old Troutrageous! blog posts into a magazine format, I was able to recruit a wide cross-section of the tenkara community to contribute some truly outstanding content. Over 110 pages of photos, essays, articles, and technique tips to be exact!

You’ll likely recognize names such as Jason Sparks, Isaac Tait, ERiK Ostrander, Robert Worthing, Chris Zimmer, Brian Schiele, Brandon Moon, Matt Sment, & Anthony Naples, just to name a few.

The editing was a long and frustrating process (my computer died mid-stream), but now that it’s complete I think it was well worth it, and typos be damned, I hope you do too.

The Winter 2015-16 issue of Tenkara Angler magazine can be found for free online consumption via Issuu HERE, or for physical purchase HERE.

I’ll be the first to admit the “Premium” paper copy is a bit expensive, however that’s the way it goes in this print on demand format. It’s priced where I make no money on the sales, as this endeavor is more for fun than profit. Plus, it would look damn nice on your coffee table or fly tying bench, am I right?
