Tenkara Angler Magazine - Spring 2016

Today I'm pleased to announce the Spring 2016 issue of Tenkara Angler magazine has hit the virtual newsstands!

I'm not going to lie, it took a little bit longer than anticipated to do all the editing, and I know I still made some mistakes (like the two page 42s listed in the table of contents - oops!), but it's done, so I'm going to let out a big exhale...

However, none of that diminishes what I think turned out to be a pretty rad issue, one that's quite a bit different from the last one.

A new logo (and interview of) Nick Cobler, tips on traveling abroad from Adam Klagsbrun, an awesome advanced casting installment by Rob Worthing, not to mention fly tying recipes from Tom Davis & Robb Chunco, essays from Paul Vertrees, Rob Lepczyk, Steven Smith, Sam Larson , and Diane Kelly-Riley...oh, and there's even art from Jim Tignor and Anthony Naples. Plus other contributions that I'll just leave as a surprise for when you open it up...

The Spring 2016 issue of Tenkara Angler magazine can be found for free online consumption via Issuu HERE, or for physical purchase via Blurb HERE.

It was a ton of fun to put together, I hope you enjoy!
