Welcome to Discover Tenkara

This is the home of cutting-edge techniques of authentic Japanese tenkara & elite Western fly fishing on rivers and streams. To get you started, you can have the world’s most detailed free river fly fishing and tenkara tuition sent direct to your inbox (click your button on the right to enrol). Your course arrives FREE in instalments and we will never pass on your email address (we take this very seriously). 

Not only that…

Our ever-growing site is building into an unmatched library of the best methods, experiences, latest news as well as the history and culture of Japanese tenkara. Along with our free resources, we will offer a true “one stop shop” for our in-house-designed and carefully-curated tackle range that includes our professional media productions. That way we can not only show you our own adventures – we will make sure you get the most enjoyment out of your own fishing time too.

The authenticity and quality of our products is assured by our constant consulting and guidance from a range of elite Japanese anglers (and our regular research trips to Japan, our home rivers and around the world in search of the greatest on-stream tenkara experiences).

Please enjoy checking out our site!
