“Usually Thursday is a slow day at Sowbug. Next year we will have “Tenkara Thursday” or otherwise a day of “Tailwater Tenkara”. I have been in contact with a number of Tenkara “experts” who are happy to join us at Sowbug and tell us about their passion. Our own Misako Ishimura is one of these! We expect to have Morgan Lyle, author of “Simple Flys”, joining us at Sowbug. We plan to haveseveral vendors who specialize in Tenkara at the show.
“On ‘Tenkara Thursday’ we will also have Tenkara related devicesand goodies for the silent auctions and raffles. I see “Tailwater Tenkara” as an opportunity to widen theappeal of Sowbug and to increase the attendance from out of town.
