Seminar: Tenkara the Simple Way to Fly Fish
Casting Pond, 11:00 a.m. & 1:00 p.m.

Tenkara is an ancient Japanese method of fly-fishing using only a rod, line and fly. Tenkara emphasizes the simplicity of gear yet focuses on fly presentation by using a long rod and light line. Perfect for beginning as well as seasoned fly fishing anglers looking to reduce the complexities and cost of traditional fly-fishing.

Rob Gonzalez began fly-fishing through tying flies over 15 years ago. He is a member of Austin Fly Fishers and has been fishing Tenkara exclusively for the past two years in the Texas Hill Country. Rob is passionate about the simplicity that Tenkara fly-fishing has to offer and enjoys sharing that with the local fly-fishing community.
