Tenkara Angler Magazine - Winter 2015-16

Welcome to Tenkara Tuesday...

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

What's new in the Winter 2015-16 issue?  Actually quite a few things, the most noticeable being the fact that instead of simply assembling a bunch of old Troutrageous! blog posts into a magazine format, I was able to recruit a wide cross-section of the tenkara community to contribute some truly outstanding content. Over 110 pages of photos, essays, articles, and technique tips to be exact!

You'll likely recognize names such as Jason Sparks, Isaac Tait, ERiK Ostrander, Robert Worthing, Chris Zimmer, Brian Schiele, Brandon Moon, Matt Sment, & Anthony Naples, just to name a few.

The editing was a long and frustrating process (my computer died mid-stream), but now that it's complete I think it was well worth it, and typos be damned, I hope you do too.

The Winter 2015-16 issue of Tenkara Angler magazine can be found for free online consumption via Issuu HERE, or for physical purchase HERE. (Use Blurb coupon code FREESHIP2015 for free shipping until December 31st).

I'll be the first to admit the "Premium" paper copy is a bit expensive, however that's the way it goes in this print on demand format. It's priced where I make no money on the sales, as this endeavor is more for fun than profit.  Plus, it would look damn nice on your coffee table or fly tying bench, am I right?


  1. Thorough collective of "TenkaraLove" here. This is going to get parsed by readers for a long time and become a sort of reference that we will review time again for refreshers. It is excellent to see another leading effort in our tenkara community with the sole purpose of growing awareness, spreading the word and supporting the congregation of those already within. This will get recognized outside of the tenkara community and will break into mainstream fly fishing readers hands very quickly. For a sophomore effort, this is simply impressive. Fantastic T! Fantastic Mike.

  2. Absolutely phenomenal work putting this together Michael. I echo J. Sparks sentiments wholeheartedly.

  3. Fantastic work, Michael and all those involved! I'd love to contribute for the next issue!

  4. Oustanding....I tip my hat is off to you. I'm looking forward to the next one.

  5. Great book and it looks beautiful. Looking forward to the next one.

  6. Holy crap this is awesome! A lot of hard work here, kudos to you sir for wading in there (heh) and getting after it!

    1. Thanks Austin, it was really fun to put together...I'm not "handy" by nature, but I enjoy making things. All of the contributors made it extremely easy!

  7. Hey Michael,Just wanted to say Thanks for the stickers they are great
