Exploring Tenkara – Fixed Line Fly Fishing

Join Matt Sment to examine the fundamentals of fixed line fly fishing. We will discuss the history, equipment, and core concepts that make Tenkara a fun, unique, and effective way to fly fish! Matt’s career in adventure leadership and training stretches more than two decades. Published in several media formats, Matt has been a featured presenter at the Appalachian Tenkara Jam, the Tenkara USA Summit, the Midwest Tenkara Fest, and speaks regularly at angling clubs and conservation groups. As co-founder of the Badger Tenkara company (2014-2019), he designed rods, delivered instruction, and promoted Tenkara fly fishing all over the United States. Matt keeps busy with guiding, instructing, and serving as Managing Editor (Education) at He is proud to call the Wisconsin Driftless region his home water.

The meeting will feature a short casting demonstration.  Given our current technology, the demo will be best experienced in person, so we encourage you to attend this meeting in person if possible.  If not possible, we will still do our best to give you a quality experience on Zoom.

The Chapter meeting will start at 7 pm, with 10 minutes of “virtual lobby time” to give online participants time to log on. In-person participants are invited to join us for social time and food/drink (on your own dime) from 5 pm onward.
