Tenkara Fly Fishing Presentation by Dr. Hisao Ishigaki
Saturday September 11
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
At the invitation of The Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club (GGACC) and Tenkara USA, GGACC is proud to host renowned tenkara fly-fishing master, Dr. Hisao Ishigaki, for a unique cross-cultural fly-fishing event.
Dr. Ishigaki is known and deeply respected throughout Japan as the leading authority on tenkara fly-fishing (the Japanese method of fly-fishing without a reel). A professor in the field of vision studies at the Aichi Institute of Technology, in Japan, Dr. Ishigaki became first known among tenkara anglers for his research on the vision of fish and of anglers. He has dedicated a big part of his life to introducing this simpler method of fly-fishing to people throughout Japan via many books, articles and DVDs on tenkara. After his first presentation in the Catskills, NY, Dr. Ishigaki is now coming on his second visit to the US to speak about tenkara.
A very friendly and warm angler and engaging lecturer, Dr. Ishigaki says he’s looking forward to making many new friends in the US, and is looking forward to his visit.
During the event Dr. Ishigaki will do a tenkara fly-tying demonstration, a presentation about tenkara, and a demonstration on tenkara casting.
This event will be limited to 40 people, and RSVP is required.
