Episode Info:

In this fourth episode of the Modern Carnivore podcast I sit down with Daniel Galhardo who is the founder of tenkara fly fishing company - Tenkara USA. His company designs, manufactures and sells equipment used in this growing trend in fly fishing called tenkara. This simple form of fly fishing has its origins in the mountain streams of Japan where it's been used to catch trout over the last couple of hundred years. The word tenkara literally means "from heaven" or "from the skies". While there are similarities to the Western-style of fly fishing, they each developed independent of each other. Daniel introduced this type of fishing to the U.S. and started Tenkara USA in 2009. I hope you enjoy the conversation. ** Tenkara USA - Gear Giveaway Has Ended ** Notify Me Of Future Giveaways     Reference Links from Today's Podcast Tenkara USA Website What Is Tenkara?

Now, here's your host, Mark Norquist . Mark : 00:21 Hello and welcome to this episode number four of the Modern Carnivore Podcast. In today's episode, I talk with Daniel Galhardo. Daniel was the first person to bring the method of fly fishing called Tenkara outside of Japan, and he founded Tenkara USA in 2009. This style of fly fishing is an ultra simple way to get out on the water. And that's why I think it's a great way for somebody to really dip their toe into the world of fly fishing. And even if you're familiar with Tenkara fly fishing, I think you're gonna. Enjoy Daniel's story here today, and him sharing what it's all about and why he brought it to the US. We talk about the history of the technique, how we got into it. Uh, and then we touched on the topic of killing fish, which is a complicated discussion. If you're not too familiar with fly fishing, this is a often talked about item because a lot of people who fly fish do not take any's all catch and release. And so we have a discussion on that. And then I want to point out the daniel references the coming winter in the, uh, in this episode. And that is because we recorded this last fall even though it's springtime now when, uh, when we're pushing it out. And I want to reference that. Today's episode is sponsored by Earth Rider Beer.
