Instructor: Doug HarthunTenkara is the traditional Japanese method of fly-fishing that uses only a rod, line, and fly. Simplicity, precise casting, delicate presentation, and fly control—these are a few of the things that distinguish Tenkara. A fixed length of line connects to the tip of the telescopic rod, a short length of tippet is attached to the line and then a fly and you’re ready to fish. Developed in the mountain streams of Japan, tenkara was the original domain of commercial anglers who used to catch native trout for a living. Its history is suspected to go back at least 400 years, though little of it is documented. Topics covered include: Tenkara rods, lines, and flies; how to open and close a Tenkara rod; how to case with a tenkara rod; knots for Tenkara; and techniques for tenkara fishing.
