Tenkara Tuesday - Traveling Around The Tenkara Horn

Welcome to Tenkara Tuesday...

In today's installment on Tenkara Tuesday, I'd like to use it as an opportunity to highlight a handful of blog posts from others that are really worth your time checking out. There is quite a bit of cool stuff going on these days...

Of Rock And Riffle

Last week Adam Klags concluded a three piece trip report of his recent journey to Italy. There have been many anglers highlighting recent tenkara trips to Japan, but Italy...well, that's worth checking out too! While the posts look really long, there are a ton of photos, so each is easily digestible. They can be found HERE, HERE, & HERE.

Tenkara Enso

Did I mention tenkara trips to Japan?  Christophe from Tenkara Enso recently returned from a trip of a lifetime. This little recap won't do his travels justice - meeting Yuzo Sebata, learning how to build bamboo rods, visiting Hiromichi Fuji's workshop, oh, and tons of fishing...check out all the posts to date HERE, HERE, HERE, & HERE.


I'm not going to lie, I don't know a lot about this blog, but I was fortunate enough to stumble upon a recent entry about building a tenkara rod. It's a well written & photographed piece, and features the tenkara rod building kits from "friend of the blog" Tenkara Customs. If you've never built your own tenkara rod, this post might just be the little nudge needed to give it a try. Find "Creating a Tenkara Rod" HERE.

Discover Tenkara

There are few tenkara content providers as polished as the guys over at Discover Tenkara. Interestingly, this latest post was not written by them, but rather an acquaintance named Glenn that came to them a tenkara skeptic. After reading the post, perhaps you'll find a little bit of your own experience in Glenn's's definitely interesting to read his point of view HERE.

Tenkara Talk

Tenkara Talk hasn't been all that chatty as of late, but last week Jason recounted a recent trip with "Dennis Michael" to try and find some tiger trout. Let's just say they were successful, which makes me jealous...because I still need to cross a tiger trout off of my fishing bucket list. Take a journey to the land of glaciers & tigers 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 or Tenkara Angler magazine! Feel free to send an email HERE, I'd love to publish your original contribution.


  1. Thanks for the shout out Mike! Nice roundup for Tenkara Tuesday. I know my blog has been a little quiet lately, but I'm about to bring it back up to speed so stay tuned.

  2. Hey Mike, thanks for the inclusion here. You make a good point... I always struggle to keep my posts short, but with Italy it was particularly difficult. I hope the photos are interesting enough to keep people engaged :) Looking forward to checking a few of these other posts out as well!

  3. Thank you Michael for mentioning Tenkara Enso in this post!
