The 2014 Appalachian Tenkara JamCan't make it out to Boulder the last weekend of September? Is Colorado just too far away? Perhaps you're just allergic to hippies and stoners... If that's the case, this alternative tenkara event might be for you.
Not meant to compete with the Tenkara Summit, but rather compliment on the East Coast, the Appalachian Tenkara Jam is being held on October 11th & 12th in Foscoe, North Carolina.
Here is some of the agenda for those interested:
Saturday October 11th 11:00AM - 8:00PM
Day One: Big screen presentations and live demonstrations inside
Sunday October 12th 9:00AM - 6:00PM
Day Two: Casting Clinics, Technique Tutorials, Stream-side Classroom, Small Group Guides
There will be presentations on the tenkara style of fly fishing covering topics such as:
- Overview: Rods, Lines, Flies
- Kebari History and current patterns
- Big Fish Wrangling
- Small Stream Techniques
While the official registration is not open yet, there are plenty of details available at the event page located within Facebook...with more details to come.
8/31 EDIT: A webpage has been set up HERE supporting details and registration of this event!
Just something to bookmark and keep on your radar for the time being. If you've never attended a tenkara (or any fly fishing) get together, they are great fun, and an awesome way to learn a little bit and connect with like-minded anglers.
