This week we dabble outside of the archery community to talk about an effective Japanese fly fishing technique with Daniel Galhardo, visionary and founder of Tenkara USA. Fishing is a great skill for anyone to have in the backcountry or out in the wild. Not only is it entertaining and moral boosting, but it can provide sustenance as well. We discuss these compact lightweight rods, proper techniques and applications, and the learning curve associated. If you’re looking for a backpacking or backcountry rod, give this a listen and check out Tenkara USA on their website (www.tenkarausa.com) or on Instagram (@tenkarausa).
