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


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.
