The almost lost art of Tenkara fly fishing has been gaining popularity in the USA for a few years now. Tenkara is an ancient Japanese fly fishing that began in the mountain streams of Japan. The people there wanted the most effective way to catch the trout in those streams as they used the fish as a livelihood and for sustenance. The methods needed to be very effective in catching trout. Because they did not write down what they knew, the art that has survived was passed down mostly by word of mouth and hands-on teaching. The first written records found were written a 100 years ago in the 1878 diary of Sir Earnest Mason Satow.
