The following video (made this morning) is the second part of the review of the Try Tenkara rod I published on May 25th.

The fishing conditions in the area are still pretty bad; very high and stained water, gusty winds day after day but my pleasure is intact. I have to adapt and have fun.

Tenkara is spreading worldwide and it is always a pleasure for me to discover new posts about this wonderful fishing technique.
Today I am glad to invite you to visit my friend Andy Wu's latest blog post.


I often receive mails from tenkara starters about the knots to be used to link the line to the rod, the tippet to the line and the fly to the tippet. This question often comes with lo-fi pictures or incomprehensible diagrams and I thought it was time for an adequate response.
This adequate, clear and definitive response was given by Masami Sakakibara aka Tenkara-no-Oni...

After several years of service the old Tenkara USA website has given way to the new TENKARA USA website.
I have visited it this morning and this is really awesome. The layout is even simple and more enjoyable than it was before and it is very easy to find what one can look for in the website contents. And we all know that this website is a good track for informations about tenkara.

With its blog, forum, awesome videos and online tackle shop the new TENKARA USA is just a must.

There are gonna be changes in Tenkara Enso blog in the weeks and months to come.

I have decided to modify the layout to make the reading more comfortable and I hope I have succeeded.
Well, you are the readers so let me know about your feedback!

If you are in touch with me through Facebook you have perhaps realized that I stopped posting anything on fly fishing groups where there are some passionates but also too many close-minded and moralizing people. I think that fly fishers who are potentially interested in tenkara will spontaneously join this community so it is not worth wasting time with these groups.
I do not have free time enough to waste it with uninteresting people who, instead of minding their own business, always have an opinion about what other people do.

I started dealing with this theme a few weeks ago and in the future I will make articles about my fishing readings. I don't know yet what form these articles will have but it seems to me that this has to be a part of my blog because I have learnt a lot and still learn a lot about Tenkara from these readings.
Perhaps these "reviews" will be useful for someone to know what is really interesting and what is not, or less.
It has been a few months since I opened in a new shelf in my fishing library and it deals with fixed line techniques, mangas and more.

TENKARA ENSO is going to change but will be in the continuity of what has been done until now. 

I take this opportunity to thank you, my dear readers, for your loyalty. Stay tuned!
