This was a fun video to put together, a quick, 30-second guide to pronouncing common words used in tenkara: tenkara, sakasa, kebari, amago, iwana, yamame, ito
Tenkara is the simple Japanese method of fly-fishing that uses only a tenkara rod, tenkara line and tenkara flies.
Sakasa means “reverse” and is used in conjunction with the word kebari, which means artificial fly. Sakasa kebari is the reverse-hackle fly commonly used in tenkara.
Amago, Iwana, Yamame and Ito are names of Japanese trout and char and also the names of the tenkara rods made by Tenkara USA.
