Tenkara Tuesday - Making A Tenkara Fly Box

Welcome to Tenkara Tuesday...

Not a ton to write about today, but stumbled across this fun woodworking video by "Clean Phil Wanted" in which he makes a tenkara fly box using only hand tools. Rather impressive skills to a guy like me that is not all that handy or crafty.

Anyway, the video is almost 6 minutes, so it's a bit long by internet standards, but a good watch nonetheless. It definitely held my attention. Enjoy!


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. Having done a lot of woodworking in the past, it's always a pleasure to watch a skilled craftsman in action. That's especially true when one tends to use power tools instead of hand tools.

  2. That's really great. I'm always jealous at the skills and creativity others have with hand tools.

  3. Nice work.
    I love the fact he used all hand tools.

  4. That's a really cool handmade box. Don't see wooden ones very often.
