In general tenkara anglers only use one fly on a cast and while most use traditional wet flies (Sakasa Kebari) it's perfectly acceptable to fish whatever fly you choose, it's easy to fish nymphs, dries and wets effectively with some advantages in presentation. The casting is much the same as when using a fly rod but much lighter and less force is required and the skill to play and land a fish is quite different with the rod acting as the drag system.

This year we will be arranging some days on the river for members to give Tenkara a try, of course if you are already fishing Tenkara or have done in the past you are more than welcome to come along. If you would like to try tenkara fishing or just get together with other anglers with an interest in this style of fishing please contact Douglas by email email@example.com
