    Hi Daniel, Hi the TenkaraUSA team,
    I am located in France and could not attend the summit unfortunately. Are you planning live streaming on YouTube this year?
    It would be great for people abroad actually. Thank you. Keep going.

    Daniel T. J. and all.

    We are bummed! Jean and I expected to be there to celebrate your tenth anniversary but due to no fault of anyone, just old age, we can’t but we do send our best wishes and thanks for the pleasure we get from “Simple Fishing” that we would not have discovered except for your inspiration and sharing. Happy Anniversary ?????

  6. […] Details here, there’s still time if you’re in the neighborhood. And kudos to Tenkara USA for 10 years in the game. […]
