We recently headed out to the great state of North Carolina to jam out at the 3rd annual Tenkara Jam. What is the Tenkara Jam? You can find complete information about it here, but basically, it is a 2 day event where anglers get together to meet each other, listen to presentations, eat BBQ, and most importantly, fish!
The Jam is put on by long time Tenkara enthusiast Jason Sparks. He does it for fun, and he does a hell of a job at putting it all together. Everything was on point: presentations, food, people, and fishing.
We were able to sneak in a few NC sessions and get into some really fun fish in some of the most scenic fall fishing environments we have ever encountered. If you are on the East Coast we recommend attending the Jam next year.
As a side note, please vote for the Tenkara Jam in the Best of the Blue Ridge HERE, it will only the make the show bigger and better!
