Daniel, founder of Tenkara USA, has been described as a “rock-climber disguised as a fly angler”, but sometimes he is a fly angler disguised as a rock-climber. In this episode Daniel discusses how he found his two big passions in life, rock-climbing and tenkara fly-fishing, as well as how they fit together and have inspired him to start Tenkara USA.
Without knowing where the episode was going to go, Daniel concludes that one shouldn’t dismiss an activity after a quick glance as you may get hooked when you actually try it. And, that some activities are great complements to each other and bring us balance.

    Nice Cast Daniel. I often listen to your Cast’s while I am completing my reporting work. Keep up the great work!

  2. This is crazy how much I’m connecting here and didnt even realize it. The last two weekends I’ve boulder /rock climbed on Fridays and Fly-fished on Saturday mornings. I’m also a backpacker so looking forward to the continued blending of my activities. Thanks for the inspiration Daniel!
