    Welcome to the Tenkara Blog!

    Glad you found the Tenkara blog, my name is Dan Pierce and I live in central Maine with my wife, son, and yellow lab. Everyone says no matter where you grow up in Maine you get exposed to the water early on wether it is the ocean on the coast, the lakes inland, or the streams in western and northern Maine. For me it was no different, being raised in the Belgrade Lakes area of Maine, I was on the water at a young age. A few years ago I stumbled upon a little known (until about 7 years ago) Japanese style of fly fishing called Tenkara. The philosophy behind Tenkara aligns with my desire for adventure and freedom perfectly and has brought back my passion for the water. Hopefully you catch some of the passion for Tenkara, and adventure, in the posts a head. Enjoy!

    Brooks near Big Eddy

    Looking for a good brook or two to fish when staying up at the big eddy campground in two weeks. I have been looking at a map and it looks like there are quite a few. Can anyone point me to a good one to hike up? Not looking for any secret spots just a good brook to hike up if it gets too hot to fish in the WB.

    Not sure if anyone posted yet but the tenkara style of fly fishing is fly fishing and is legal on FFO waters in Maine.

    This is my first post on here and I have already done a search for the WB and read some of the posts. My brother in law booked a site at the Big Eddy the end of August and I am looking for some info on spots to fish (wading) near the campground? Any thoughts would be great!
