One Man and His Rod - Tenkara Fishing in Dorset free pdf In this book John covers the history, the basic technique and a 'How To. section on making Tenkara flies, and making your own furled lines. Tenkara fishing can be seen as a streamlined counterpart to western fly-fishing. The equipment is designed to focus on the actual fishing and catching them, not the major preoccupation with the equipment. The equipment is designed to direct focus to the actual fishing and catching of the fish. A rod, Tenkara line and fly are necessary for Tenkara fishing (no reel is used). The appeal of Tenkara is its elegant simplicity. There are also other advantages of using the long Tenkara rods when fishing in mountain streams, primarily the lightness of the line and delicate presentation. A long rod allows for precise placement of the fly on small pools and allows for holding the fly in place on the other side of a current. The other main advantage of using the long Tenkara rod is precise control for manipulation of the fly. This is one mans story, from first learning the art of Tenkara in Japan to using the technique fishing around the world. This book also has a detailed section on his experiences fishing Tenkara around his local waters of Dorset, UK.
