At last weekend’s Tenkara Jam, we were able to grab some video footage of Rob Worthing’s (Tenkara Guides) presentation – specifically, the portion on how to land big fish with your tenkara rod. Rob was gracious enough to allow the video to be published for public consumption, which Tenkara Angler is presenting today.
If you enjoyed this video, please visit www.tenkaraguides.com, where Rob and his partners Erik & John have been operating the first fixed-line fly fishing-only guide service in the Western Hemisphere since 2011.
Not a Tenkara Angler production, but a fun little tenkara-themed video from Carpe Ichthus Studios… some good stuff.
Happy to see the local PBS in Vermont do about a 10-minute piece on tenkara fishing. It’s an introductory piece, but nice watch if you have the time to spare.
Wow. What a wonderful video put together by Daniel Galhardo and Tenkara USA. It’s a little bit longer than most (over 8 minutes) but well worth the time:
From the video’s description:
Mr. Yuzo Sebata is one of the most well-known tenkara anglers in Japan. He keeps his fly-fishing simple and enjoys backpacking in the mountains of Japan catching trout and foraging for mushrooms. When we went backpacking together, he brought along a very simple fly-tying kit, which he pulled out at our camp by the stream and proceeded to tie a fly. Watch to see how he ties flies without a vise and with very simple materials.
Rather than write a long-winded post, I decided to make a long-winded video about some of the updates around the Spring 2017 issue – including a general update on progress, a Cover Photo Contest, and Letters to the Editor.
Christophe Laurent posted a nice slide show video from the 2016 Tenkara Fest in France to YouTube a few days ago. Personally, I love looking at photos and video from other countries, as some things may be different, but the language of fishing in universal.
There was a wonderful profile of Japanese tenkara Master, Yuzo Sebata posted to the FishingVision.tv website the other day. Translated into English, the 20-minute video takes us on stream with Sebata-san, and gives us insight into his background as an angler & naturalist.
It’s a very interesting watch if you have not already viewed it.
