Tenkara Angler Magazine: Winter 2017-18

It's finally done! Thanks to a bad head & chest cold, it took so loooong to edit and layout, but the Winter issue of Tenkara Angler magazine is finally live and ready to be digitally flipped through.

This issue is a little different because it doesn't focus so much on actual fishing or technique, rather activities you can do off-water, especially during a cold winter. The main draw is a focus on fly tying, featuring five different flies, (with ingredients and instructions) from five different tyers. There's also a DIY on tamo (landing net) building, a core workout routine for anglers, and a recommended reading list... once you're done reading the magazine, of course!

That said, all the other good stuff that's usually in TA is back too - essays, photography, destination reporting, art, poetry, so even if you're not feeling like MacGyver, there's still probably something to read as well - check out Melissa Alcorn's entry, it's awesome.


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

And also available for sale as a physical magazine and PDF download in the Blurb bookstore, HERE.



  1. Excellent stuff. The piece on page 96 is great, and a reminder that fishing is fishing.

    I'd probably get tarred and feathered in some circles, but there is a lot less of a difference between cane pole dapping and fly fishing than there is between lobbing weighted multi-nymph rigs and fly fishing.

    1. Everybody's out to tar & feather these days for one thing or another. Hook & feather is so much better. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.
