An Introduction to Tenkara Seminar
April 13th from 10:00 am to 11:00 am

Will be held at Front 20 Outfitters Fly Shop
Tenkara fly fishing is a very simple and efficient method of catching fish that has been used for hundreds of years by commercial and recreational fishers in mountainous parts of Japan. Tenkara fishing is based upon tenkara-style fly manipulation. This free seminar will include discussion of the basics of rods, lines, flies, and knots used with tenkara. It is open to everyone.

Tenkara places more emphasis on technique rather than gear. Tenkara fishing can be seen as a streamlined counterpart to western fly-fishing. The equipment is designed to direct focus to the actual fishing and catching of the fish, not with the equipment. Only a rod, tenkara line, and fly are necessary for tenkara fishing.
