In 2016, I was awarded the title, "Tenkara Ambassador" by Daniel Galhardo of Tenkara USA. I am humbled by this appointment. Daniel interviewed me in 2014, you can find that interview here.
Below are some of my favorite tenkara-fisher articles that I have written or have organized.
Casting Practice for Accuracy
The Wrong Kebari
Travel Tying Kit
Nissan Pocket Mini
Tenkara USA Sato
I choose a minimalist style on stream, my wading equipment is Japanese and so are a lot of the choices I make for shore lunch, hiking and camping.
I take inspiration from Soseki Yamamoto, a Japanese author of many keiryu books that include the community and his friends, tenkara anglers from all over Japan.
I have written articles for Tenkara (the magazine) and Tenkara Angler magazine. Together with John Sachen, Michael Agneta, Daniel Galhardo, Keiichi Okushi and Yuzo Sebata, we bring to you our enthusiasm for tenkara. I enjoy being able to bring to you, the interesting world of the tenkara fisher.
