Tenkara Masters Technique Video

Daniel Galhardo of TenkaraUSA posted a great instructional video on tenkara techniques. A "must see" if you interested in Tenkara.

What caught my attention was the arm and wrist positions when casting and later the different presentation techniques. I have to remember those next time on the river.

Thanks, Daniel!
