We are opened!!!

Although understandably popular in Japan, Tenkara fly-fishing was almost unknown in western countries until 2009, when Daniel Galhardo founded  www.tenkarausa.com. Today thousands of American anglers fish in the Tenkara style. 

The explosive growth in the  popularity  of Tenkara in the U.S. has had an impressive impact on European anglers.  Daniel Galhardo “twitted” in February 2012 that 60% of his monthly orders come from within Europe. 

The  inauguration of “The Tenkara Times“ is the result of the growing popularity of Tenkara fishing in Europe. “The Tenkara Times” unites and links  Tenkara enthusiasts from all  European countries.
