Tenkara is the traditional Japanese method of fly fishing. Manhattan is one of America’s most urbanized fisheries. Tenkara Takes Manhattan is the ongoing story of urban angler, artist, and author ron P. swegman – long a proponent of streamlined fly fishing, small fish, and small waters – as he documents his investigation of East Asian angling methods, his exploration of East Coast fishing destinations, while experimenting with techniques, patterns, and fish species that are, at times, outside the flybox . . .
