Tenkara Tuesday - What Happens In Vegas...

Welcome to Tenkara Tuesday.

Tenkara Tuesday alum Jason Klass of Tenkara Talk fame recently posted a free sticker offer in conjunction with a tenkara gear giveaway he was holding to promote his blog.  Unfortunately, as I once learned the hard way, whenever you promote something as "free," even something as small as a sticker, the crazies come out of the woodwork and ruin the fun for everyone.

Luckily, I was one of the fortunate folks that got a Tenkara Talk sticker before the freakshow started.

This week, my work is putting me on a plane again.  Instead of South, now we're talkin' West.  Las Vegas, Nevada to be exact.  While it will be 3 days full of drinking convention and trade show activities (no, I won't be here...and I'll miss this one by a week...), I thought it might be fun to bring the Tenkara Talk sticker with me so I can craft my entry into Jason's contest in some of my down time.

Where will Tenkara Talk show up?  You'll have to wait and see...


Are you a Western tenkara angler? Do you have a story, pictures, video, fly recipe, or simply a fishing report from one of your recent tenkara adventures? If so, Troutrageous! wants to hear from you for a future Tenkara Tuesday post! Feel free to send an email HERE, or check out this previous post for more information.  


  1. Awesome photos! Every fly fisher has a lot to learn from Tenkara fishing, Without doubt you get 5 stars (or was it ten that was the highest+):
    Have fun,

  2. You know, the tough thing about "what happens in vegas stays in vegas," is that, for those of us who've never been there, we really don't know anything that happens in vegas, because it all stays there... Maybe your entry will help shed some light.

    Good luck on the contest! I missed out on that one. It would've been fun to build up my new tenkara inventory.
