Tenkara Tuesday - 2015 Tenkara Magazine

Welcome to Tenkara Tuesday...

As if this blog does not already serve as a giant, shameless act of self-promotion, I'm going to plug the most recent issue of Tenkara Magazine.  Especially...ahem...page 33.

While "Purple Fly" is not the longest piece I've ever written, as it was originally intended to be a blog post, I'll certainly take it as a first foray into print.  (Thank you whomever did the editing!)  In case you were wondering, it's a short about my daughter Lilly's re-kindled interest in fishing.  What did you expect...a Tenkara Sasquatch exposé?

But don't just read it for my nonsense, there are also several contributions from other "friends of the blog," such as Chris "Kiwi" Kuhlow, who submitted a great piece on Saltwater tenkara.

I'm sure that most that are interested in this kind of magazine have already placed their orders, but for the few holdouts, or those that missed the release over the holidays, the 2015 Tenkara Magazine is available HERE.


Are you a 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, I'd really enjoy hearing from you for an upcoming Tenkara Tuesday post! Feel free to send an email HERE, I'd love to publish your original contribution.


  1. There is no shame in promoting this amazing publication! You deserve to be in the team.

  2. Thanks for the plug Mike! But the first article I actually read was YOURS. I have watched Lilly grow up through your blog and can't help but notice the similarities between her and my oldest...Isabella. However, I have yet to try tenkara with her but after reading "Purple Fly" I plan to do it as soon as spring arrives.
