Tenkara Seminar Highlghts

Mossy Creek Fly Fishing was host to Tenkara USA founder, Daniel Galhardo who was in the Mid-Atlantic area to visit dealers and do a little fishing.

Daniel was in the shop on Saturday October 20th giving a presentation and casting demonstration.

In the afternoon we took Daniel and a group of avid tenkara anglers to Mossy Creek for a hands-on clinic and some fishing.

You can see photos of the outing on our Facebook page here and here

Be sure and check out the video Brian shot of the tenkara action!


Daniel used a Tenkara USA Ito rod, 15' of 3.5 level line, 4' of 5x tippet and the Ishigaki Kebari.

Listen to the commentary; Brian says, "don't you hate it when fish get on the way of your fish."

There was another fish rising downstream of this fish. Daniel is keeping his fish from disturbing that fish so he can try and catch it next.

Daniel, Brian and Tom had a chance to fish for brook trout on Sunday. They fished only tenkara flies on level lines using tenkara techinques. Brian and Tom took advantage of Daniel's coaching to become more skilled in the tenkara style of fly fishing.

Our thanks to Daniel for joining us this weekend. We look forward to seeing him at the Fly Fishing Shows this winter.
