Spring 2020 Issue Coming Soon…

So, I’m not going to lie. I really sweated out the deadline for the upcoming Spring issue. Up until the last week I had only received three articles… not really enough for a magazine, perhaps a pamphlet, LOL! It’s almost like there was something serious going on in the country that had everyone’s undivided attention.

Well, a few more came in right at the buzzer, so I think I’ll try crafting a Spring issue to give everybody on COVID-19 quarantine a little tenkara content to enjoy. Look for it in about a week or so.

In the meantime, if you have any last minute “reader photos” you’d still like to submit of fish, flies, gear, whatever, just send them in to mike@tenkaraangler.com. They’re super easy to add to the magazine, and definitely contribute a little more eye candy to the pages.

In the meantime, enjoy this little video from Mike Hepner, who was recently doing some social distancing out on the stream. You may recognize Mike… or a certain part of his body… from the Spring 2018 cover

Spring 2020 Call For Submissions

I wanted to take the opportunity today to announce/remind everyone that the submission period for the Spring 2020 issue of Tenkara Angler is officially open!

TA Spring 2020 Call To Action

While the submission process never technically closed, I like to make these posts about a month prior to the deadline, in this case March 20th, 2020.

As always, this issue will reflect the interests of the tenkara community at large, so as long as the content – articles, photos, etc… – is tenkara, fixed-line, or conservation themed, all is fair game.

Some popular topics covered are as follows:

    • Conservation issues
    • Fly Tying Recipes / How-Tos
    • Trip Reports / Essays
    • Destination fishing
    • Gear reviews
    • Photography
    • Coverage of what anglers are doing in Japan

Submissions can be sent to mike@tenkaraangler.com, and more information on the submission process can be found HERE.
