|Tenkara - Radically Simple, Ultralight Fly Fishing|
This book is further proof that interest about Tenkara outside Japan is growing and that more people caught "the bug" (pun intended) and want to spread the word and knowledge about this type of fly fishing.
The book is an easy read and provides all the information a novice will need to know about Tenkara but also what a seasoned angler will need to make the transition to Tenkara. The chapters cover the roots and history of Tenkara, gear, rigging, fishing techniques, water styles, bugs, fly tying and choices, line furling and more. The illustrations are a nice addition and make the book visually appealing as well as clarify some of the referenced issues (i.e. how do you attach the line to the lilian?).
