DISPATCH AT 877 457-5680
Speaker: Bruce Pencek, “American Tenkara Fishing”
Thursday May 18, 2017, Endicott Public Library, 7:00 PM (informal tying demonstration at 6:30)
Bruce Pencek returns from Virginia (via Hancock) to talk about American tenkara – the translation of no-reel/fixed-line fly-fishing tackle and techniques from the mountain streams of Japan to the diverse waters and fish of North America. He will talk about selecting and rigging tenkara tackle and give his thoughts about how fixed-line rods have improved his success with western techniques – dry flies, Euro-style nymphing, even streamers – for trout, smallmouth, and carp. (With luck, he might have some illustrated tales about his fixed-line fishing in the Southern Tier in the days leading up to the talk.) He’ll provide some handouts with his recommendations for information sources and vendors. Before the talk, he’ll tie some of the flies he uses regularly.
