June 6, 2014 By: Erin Block

  • A new tenkara store has recently gone live online. “The Tenkara Shop” will carry a unique product lineup and is the exclusive dealer of Tenkara no Oni rods in the U.S.
  • From tips for navigating tight mangrove swamps and ideal habitat areas to effective flies, David Brown has a recent piece in Florida Sportsman on advice and techniques for fishing for juvenile tarpon.
  • Sonic transmitters are being used to monitor the impact of the Tappan Zee Bridge construction project on Atlantic and shortnose sturgeon populations, two imperiled species whose commercial catch has been forbidden since 1996. “The people on shore are affected by it, and so fish are affected as well,” says Justin Krebs, a fish ecologist.
