Tenkara - The Traditional Japanese Method of Fly Fishing
with Daniel Galhardo

Daniel Galhardo founded Tenkara USA in 2009 and has brought the traditional Japanese method of fly-fishing where only a rod, line and fly are used to the US. Tenkara is about fly-fishing simplicity and mountain-stream effectiveness. Eleven to fourteen foot long rods allow anglers to fish mountain streams in a way that is nearly impossible with western fly gear. Listen to learn about the history, philosophy and of course the strategies and techniques of using the Tenkara system.

Great show. I had the opportunity to fish with Daniel on Boulder Creek a few weeks ago and learned a lot from him then and even more from the show!

It was quite interesting, but I doubt it will ever be a big hit here in the US. It reminds me of the European matchfishing methods with a long pole. I have been in some of the European style matches with a 42 ft long pole. It is effective but will never relpace a rod and reel here in the US.

Hello Roger, I finally got a chance to listen to the whole interview and 'WOW" Loved it! I've been fishing with my own tenkara rod and tying the kaberi for about 2 yrs. Just last night i was in a local lake catching big bluegills and some bass on my 12' Iwana. I started reading, watching, and listening to Daniel quite awhile ago. I really liked the depth of the interview and the history of sport, the explanation of the 2 types of lines, tapered and level. I make my own furled leader for all my fly fishing and absolutely love the ease and simplicity of Tenkara.
