Tenkara Angler Magazine: Summer 2017

A guy goes away for vacation... then comes back to work on a pet project e-mag, and well, this blog gets totally neglected for almost a month. Sorry about that...

However, it is finally my pleasure to announce that the Summer 2017 issue of Tenkara Angler magazine is now live! It took a little longer than I thought it would to pull everything together, but it's done, and I hope the contributors and community will be happy with the results.

This issue covers many topics, included but not limited to – wild trout, the Wisconsin Driftless, fly tying tips, an interview, and gear previews. Quite a bit of the content is tenkara related, but not tenkara specific. Stuff any angler would enjoy.

As usual, it will be available as a free e-magazine over at Issuu, HERE.

And also available for sale as a physical magazine in both Premium or Standard formats and PDF download in the Blurb bookstore, HERE.

It was clearly calling me to make up for lost time during my down time. So without further ado, I present:
