Tenkara is who we are.
Hello! Welcome to the second edition of a little series we’ve put together to help you get to know our wonderful crew. Tenkara USA has always been a tight-knit team of responsive anglers dedicated to sharing tenkara, and while we work with outside firms for some other aspects of our business (such as fulfillment) and count on supporters at events, the team we’re highlighting here is our close-knit in-house staff with whom you’re likely to interact when you reach out. While it’s true that our founder Daniel Galhardo has taken a step back from the helm, our main team is together and we’re happy to help you with all things tenkara.
Meet John Geer, Dealer and Customer Services
John Geer brings decades of fly-fishing with him. He works with our dealer network and Tenkara Guide Network, manages our repair department, and supports TJ in customer service.
It is time to put tenkara rods in the hands of more people, and to allow you to stop by your favorite shop and get the lines and flies you need as well as the full lineup of tenkara rods. We are expanding quickly into more stores and welcome several new tenkara dealers that just received their first shipment of Tenkara USA gear.
Tenkara USA products can now be found in over 80 stores around the country. This number will continue to grow and will include many outdoor sporting goods stores that so far do not carry any fly-fishing equipment.
