Welcome to the Discover Tenkara Resources Pages – your gateway to improving your skills, success and confidence in long-rod, light-line and simple fly tactics…

Run by me (Paul Gaskell) and John Pearson to share our discoveries of authentic and highly effective fly fishing techniques from Japan and around the globe. Our particular focus on “tenkara” (the traditional form of fly fishing from Japan’s mountain regions) reflects our passion for this elegant, technical and minimalist style of fly fishing…But we have a long background in a wide range of fishing styles (including competitive river fly fishing).
