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.
