TENKARA: Learn about Japanese style of fly fishing

February 9, 2014 

The Puget Sound Fly Fishers will host a free presentation on the Japanese style of fly fishing at its meeting Feb. 13. Dick Sagara will present the program “Tenkara.”

Sagara is an avid and expert fly angler. When not on the water, he represents Temple Fork, Rainy Flies and Rodmounts.

In his presentation, Sagara will give a brief history and evolution of tenkara fishing, tackle, techniques, advantages of the style and its limitations.

Tenkara fishing uses only a rod, line and fly. The 11- to 14-foot long rods telescope down to just 20 inches.

The meeting will be held in the Tower Lanes banquet room, 6323 Sixth Ave., Tacoma.

An optional $15 dinner is offered prior to the presentation and regular monthly meeting of the fly-fishing group. All the activities will begin at 6 p.m.
