Dr. Ishigaki is known and deeply respected throughout Japan as the leading authority on tenkara fly-fishing. A professor in the field of vision studies at the Aichi Institute of Technology, in Japan, Dr. Ishigaki became first known among tenkara anglers for his research on the vision of fish and of anglers. He has dedicated a big part of his life to introducing this simpler method of fly-fishing to people throughout Japan via many books, articles and DVDs on tenkara. After his first presentation in the Catskills, NY, Dr. Ishigaki is now coming on his second visit to the US to speak about tenkara.

A very friendly and warm angler and engaging lecturer, Dr. Ishigaki says he’s looking forward to making many new friends in the US, and is looking forward to his visit.

During the event Dr. Ishigaki will do a tenkara fly-tying demonstration, a presentation about tenkara, and a demonstration on tenkara casting.

Space is very limited.

    By June 24, 2011 – 4:53 pmTenkara may have been invented ceurnties ago in the Japanese hills, but I can tell you it has been practiced in the small mountain streams of the Smoky Mountains longer than folks can remember. I first heard about this form of fishing back in the mid-1970 s. I heard many tales from old-timers about their experiences, and those of others, fishing in the small mountain streams with a 12-foot bank pole, no reel, and a yeller-hammer fly. These guys were masters using every means of cover (and there’s a lot of it in our laurel-covered steams) available to them to sneak-up on their prey.This all has me thinking I know where there’s a fine canebrake from which I’m sure I could harvest a 12-foot bank pole Nice article!
