Fly fishing, that most contemplative of sports, can be complex and costly. And yet it doesn't have to be. Not with tenkara. This Eastern approach to fly fishing has no cumbersome gear. The line is hitched directly to the end of a long collapsible rod, and without a reel casting becomes easy and intuitive. The gear is not only inexpensive but also highly portable, perfect for hiking and camping. Long overlooked in the West, tenkara is taking the West by storm. Beginning and seasoned anglers will find the information needed to make the transition from Western to tenkara fishing: the essentials of gear and rigging, fishing dry lines, subsurface fishing and casting, knots, tenkara backpacking, and tenkara for women. Regardless of your skill level, it's the simplicity that's going to win you over. Tenkara has everything you love about fly fishing, but with a liberating minimalism.About the Author:
