Japanese Tenkara Fishing in the Peak District
I recently had the pleasure of a few hours of Tenkara fishing in the upland streams of the Peak District, courtesy of expert Paul Gaskell. A traditional Japanese method of fishing, Tenkara differs from normal fly fishing in the use of a long rod and a short line. This setup means a fly can be accurately placed into the small pools and eddies found in mountain streams. The light equipment needed makes for a fast moving experience, scrambling up and alongside the streams surrounded by the August heather. I am unqualified to use any more detailed fishing terms than these, so check out Discover Tenkara here for more information.
