I first became interested in Tenkara in the fall of 2009 after seeing it mentioned in a blog post. I had no idea what it was but based on what I read I thought it was definitely worth a more detailed look. An Internet search did not yield many sources of information. However, two websites continuously popped up no matter how I searched. One, not surprisingly, was Tenkara USA. Tenkara USA was the first company in the US to offer Tenkara fishing rods. The other website was Tenkara Bum by Chris Stewart. These two sites were and still are the two best sources of Tenkara information on the web whether you are a beginner or experienced Tenkara angler. Though the best way to learn to fish is to spend time on the water, these two sites will provide all the necessary information to get started. In addition to Tenkara info, Chris supplies a number of items such as flies, line, and a number of other accessories through tenkarabum.com. The reason for this post is two fold. One, Chris is a nice guy with a great website that is helpful for any tenkara angler. The second reason is that I'm excited to announce that Chris and I have entered into an agreement to sell several of my flies on www.tenkarabum.com. I was very excited when Chris approached me about a month ago and asked if I would consider it. We both feel that this could be beneficial to both of us. For the time being, Chris will offering my Ausable Kebari, Royal Sakasa Kebari, and the Bubble Kebari in olive and black. In addition, I will also be tying the Usual (a great pattern by the late Fran Betters). I am grateful for those who have come to my site to purchase flies in the past but unfortunately I will be closing my other blog where I offered my flies. Most of the flies I offered to tie over there would just be duplicating flies that Chris already does an outstanding job tying for his customers. However, if there are any questions about my flies or you don't see specific ones offered please feel free to contact me and we will see what we can do.
