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.
