In tenkara - the book, Tenkara USA founder Daniel Galhardo shows just how simple fly-fishing can be. This book is a complete guide to the techniques, gear, history and philosophy of tenkara, the Japanese method of fly-fishing. It is also a manifesto on fly-fishing simplicity.

An angler picking up a tenkara rod for the first time will find the concepts in this book  well laid out and intuitive. The experienced angler will appreciate the simpler approach to fly-fishing and the advanced techniques shared in the book.

Throughout the book Daniel brings the reader along a journey of learning tenkara directly from the masters in Japan as he shares information on the method‚ equipment and techniques. 

tenkara - the book was designed to be interactive and take advantage of all the resources we have created over the years. Thoroughout the book readers will find QR (quick read) codes that will give access to the videos, podcast episodes and other complementary information to the chapters at hand.

The best way to keep fly-fishing simple is to learn how to rely more on technique rather than gear. This book contains that knowledge.
