THANK YOU ALL OF OUR READERS FOR THE WONDERFUL COMMENTS YOU TOOK THE TIME TO ENTER HERE!!!
We are super proud to have touched so many lives and hear from you about what tenkara has meant to you over the last 5 years. We will always make it right by you by continuing to provide great customer service, useful information, entertaining stories, and excellent products. .
Today marks our 5th anniversary! On April 12th, 2009 we officially launched our site and started the journey of introducing a simpler fly-fishing method outside of Japan.
It has been a tremendous experience. I had a vision that, in a way, went counter to everything the established industry was doing. But I believed that people would gravitate towards the simplicity and effectiveness of tenkara. Hitting the 5-year mark tells me people indeed wanted it simpler.
There is tons I could write about the journey we have gone through, the challenges, the victories, the phases of introducing tenkara here. But, let me keep this short.
We would like to celebrate these last 5 years by giving away 5 tenkara sets this weekend with the tenkara rod of your choice.
To have a chance of winning, simply enter a comment here in our blog about your tenkara experience, or what you feel the introduction of tenkara has meant to the world of fly-fishing or anything you’d like to say really. We will pull 5 random winners tomorrow at midnight MST (04/13 11:59pm/12am). Make sure to enter your email address when you enter a comment.
Thank you very much for your support over the last 5 years and for helping us spread the word on tenkara.
