The holiday season has brought a festive end to my actual fishing with the fly for 2013. In the time and space reserved for things angling, I have now acquired three good reads on my coffee table. All are worth mentioning.

First, and the one directly linked to tenkara, is the new Tenkara Magazine published by Daniel Galhardo of Tenkara USA. The debut issue features 112 pages of words and images from some well-known tenkara anglers and bloggers, including an illustrated piece – “Uptown Tenkara: A Crappie Experience” – from my own perspective. You can preview (and order) the magazine by following this link:

Two new novels also found their way into my holiday stocking. One is Death Canyon: A Jake Trent Novel by David Riley Bertsch. The author, like me, was born in Pittsburgh and attended Penn State University. While I moved east and into an even more urban existence, Bertsch travelled west to Wyoming and now lives the life of a fly fishing guide and novelist.

The second novel delivered by Santa is The Royal Wulff Murders by Keith McCafferty. Author of The Grey Ghost Murders, McCafferty’s hard-boiled, fly fishing private detective, Sean Stranahan, fills the void left behind after the recent passing of William Tapply.

Fishing may be going to hibernation for a spell, but there are plenty of new good words to fire the angling imagination during the cold winter months. Look for in-depth reviews of these publications in future updates
