Here are two fun episodes on tenkara made for the TV show “Lip’em & Rip’em”. The video was shot last year in the Minturn area of Colorado. The hosts of the show saw in tenkara a simple fly fishing method and invited me to participate. In these episodes we go through a very comprehensive view of tenkara. We talk about the tenkara rods, the philosophy behind the tenkara flies and then, how to catch and land a LOT of large trout (without ever throwing our rod in the water!)
Enjoy it, and share it with friends. Make sure to click on the gear icon and select 720 for high-definition resolution.
As you can see here, you should never have to throw your tenkara rod in the water! At least not a Tenkara USA rod.

I really enjoyed the video’s ,I can’t wait to go fishing ! everything here in the North East is frozen. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for the comment Michaela! I think most of the country is right there with you!
Great videos, Daniel. To tell you the truth, these are the most didactic videos that I’ve watched about Tenkara. Very casual, and fun.
Can’t wait till open season in NW Oregon (more restrictions to fish than in Colorado -which is good in terms of keeping healthy fish).
Thanks for sharing the videos!
By the way, I’ve catched once a steelhead with my Ayu in the Nehalem River, near Vernonia in Oregon. It was a great experience and a good fight. Definitely, I think TenkaraUSA rods are resistant to get big fish.
Uh, please, no more of these. Horrible acting, should get a Razzie Award. Stick to fishing guys!
@daniel: i’d been looking forward to part two and am pleased with the results. great stuff.
@martin: great word choice…didactic…i need to use it more often. any chance you have a pic of that steelie. we’d all love to see it.
