Présentation de l'éditeur

The Complete Tenkara Experience.

Before you buy, please check out the free preview feature for both the print and ebook editions and make your purchase decision in confidence from there...I'm sure you'll find this book full of excellent insights and strategies on tenkara fly fishing.

Learn tenkara fly fishing from the insights and experiences of some of America’s best tenkara anglers!

One of the things I first noticed when I began getting into tenkara was the lack of written material available outside of some very good blogs from ex-perienced tenkara anglers, many of whom participated in this project. Very little Japanese literature has been translated into English. There are still many Western-style fly anglers who still don’t know or hadn’t heard of tenkara. Now that I have experienced tenkara for myself, it’s hard for me to imagine other anglers missing out on an opportunity to add another dimension to their fishing pleasure.

Searching around, I did find a small cadre of anglers who had discovered tenkara and were now on the path to serious dedication and understanding. More importantly, these guys were catching trout and lots of them in waters all around the United States.

How could something this good be known to so few? We had to find ways to get the word out on tenkara as a method of fly-fishing here in the States. It seemed to me that the best way to do that was to find some of the best tenkara anglers in the U.S. and work with them to share their insights, strategies and tactics for tenkara. That’s just what I did in producing this book.

You the reader have the opportunity to consider a wider range of views on tenkara, from the purist tenkara angler to what I call the “adaptive tenkara angler.” There’s room for everyone in the tenkara world. You can discern what appeals to you as you work your way through each chapter.

I think you’ll enjoy the wit and often-sharp opinions that our group of tenkara anglers has openly shared. I know I have as I’ve worked through their interviews and constructed the manuscript for this book project.

What You’ll Learn In This Book:

History of tenkara – What makes tenkara special – Selecting a tenkara rod – Tenkara fly lines – Best tippet options – Traditional tenkara flies – Matching the hatch vs. tenkara – Manipulating the fly – Non-traditional tenkara flies – Tying Traditional Kebari & Adaptation Patterns - Casting techniques – Fishing riffles, pools, eddies & pocket water with tenkara – Fishing small waters – Strategies for fishing larger waters - Fighting fish on a tenkara rod

…And Much More!

Biographie de l'auteur

David Dirks has been a fly angler spanning nearly 35 years and now counts tenkara fly fishing for the overwhelming time he puts on trout waters around the U.S.

Dave is the host and producer of the DirksOutdoors radio show on WTBQ in the Hudson Valley ( – one of the only outdoor radio shows of its kind in New York State.

His outdoor videos are produced for the DirksOutdoors YouTube channel (

Dave was the weekly outdoor columnist for The Times Herald-Record (, which is based in Middletown, N.Y., from 1999 to 2013. He is a long-time member of the New York State Outdoor Writers Association.

“I’ve been fishing and hunting for over 35 years,” he says. “During those years, I’ve had the opportunity to teach and take many friends into the fields and streams throughout New York State. I’ve also taught the skills of angling and hunting to each of my four growing children, who are now my best outdoor partners.”

Dirks is a lifelong resident of the Hudson Valley and fishes all over the United States. When taking a break from his work, Dirks can be found in the fields, streams or hiking paths with one of his children and other great friends.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Le meilleur livre publié en occident sur le sujet 10 juillet 2013
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Contrairement au livre de Kevin C. Kelleher celui ci est un ouvrage collectif qui dresse un portrait exhaustif du Tenkara tel qu'il est pratiqué aujourd'hui aux Etats Unis par des amateurs éclairés ou des guides de pêche professionnels. Ce livre est très agréable à lire et évite l'aspect technique des livres de pêche qui est très souvent rebutant pour les néophytes; son seul défaut est de n'être disponible qu'en anglais.

Petite déception pour les photos de qualité moyenne voire médiocre.

It is useful as it gathers the opinion for known people in the small Tenkara community.
when you cannot fish because you live in a big city far from those marvelous mountain stream, it could help you overcome your fate ;)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good compilation 2 avril 2013

It's a very good collection of contributions from tenkara anglers in the USA.
The book is very well organized to cover some good parts of fly-fishing, and has generally good advise/insights on different things about tenkara, even if one contributor may contradict the other a bit. The different insights are good. The advise on specific portions about tenkara, however, could confuse a reader who is new to tenkara or to fly-fishing, and it may come across as a "complicated" method because it can be fished in so many different ways. I believe this book, paired with straight-forward instructions will make you a well-rounded tenkara angler.
In a nutshell, it is a very solid book on tenkara, and I recommend it. (note: I am in the book too)

The lack of color pictures is a drawback with this book, which is a compilation of tenkara experts' opinions and perspectives on different aspects of tenkara fishing. Good tips, especially for the begining tenkara fisherman. Overall, good not great content. I liked the other tenkara book by Kelleher better 5 stars). If you are interested in tenkara, I would buy Kelleher's book 1st. This w/b a good follow-up book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not bad. Not great. 16 août 2013
Par R. Adams - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Not a bad collection of responses from the various writers. I tend to dislike these types of books, however, because they tend to provide a lot of general insights but no real meat on the bone, as they say. This book, unfortunately falls prey to this as well in my opinion.

I would have rather seen a more in-depth discussion of fishing topics like line choices for different rivers, rods used in specific trips and why, fly patterns during different times of year, or other specific topics that could help the fly fisherman who has experience with western techniques but is looking to expand his knowledge of tenkara techniques.

The "How do you feel about tenkara?" types of questions provide nothing you couldn't find on each of the respective writer's website which seemed like padding to me. I don't mind this kind of thing in an opening chapter, but it seemed to fill out the beginning, middle, and ending of the book a bit too much.

This book is probably a good start for anyone new to fly fishing in general, but it does little to provide them with real knowledge of gear, techniques, or history. It seems like a book by a Dr. Ishigaki or Sakakibara Masami would do well among those interested in gaining real insights into tenkara. I actually just recently discovered that Craig Mathews will be coming out with a book on Tenkara later this year (2013). I will definitely be on the pre-order list for that one! His books are usually guru-like in their knowledge and I expect no less from him even though this is a relatively new field for most western anglers.

Minor Rant: One quibble I have with *some* of the authors in this book is their perspective that we shouldn't worry about *how* we define tenkara and that we should all just do it our own way... This American approach to things can be refreshing for those who don't worry about history or don't want to learn the myriad of techniques developed over centuries in Japan, but for those who do have interest, it seems flippant, dismissive, and quite frankly egotistical to assume that you can do it however you want and still call it tenkara. Is that true? Or is it our American / western approach that ignores tradition at our own peril? I would much prefer to humble myself in order to expand my mind to what others have learned rather than having to make mistakes and errors for no real reason.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Information 20 août 2013
Par Bonny Dooner - Publié sur

I was interested in Tenkara Fly Fishing but looked as if it were really technical. This book gave great insight into this type of fishing and the roundtable discussions were great. It was nice to see all the different opinions. Felt so comfortable after reading this I bought a starter kit for Tenkarabum. Really de-mystified Tenkara FF. The origins of this type of fishing sure reminded me of cane pole bobber fishing....
