Dave was stung with the Tenkara bug in 2009 and has enjoyed catching trout on his favorite Catskill trout streams ever since. Dave is a licensed NYS professional fishing guide and spends most of his guiding season taking his clients on tenkara “learn & fish” trout fishing adventures. In 2013, Dave organized and edited one of the few English-based books on tenkara, Tenkara Fly Fishing: Strategies & Tactics which has since gone on to be a bestselling book on the subject. “The simplicity of tenkara is one thing. It’s also a highly effective method for catching trout. It’s a great moment when a new angler catches their first trout on a tenkara rod – they then know just what the joy of tenkara means in that moment of time.”
