Tenkara USA Gives Back

Tenkara USA is a fully independent, U.S.-based company located in Boulder, Colorado. Founded in 2009 by Daniel Galhardo, Tenkara USA is the first company to introduce tenkara outside of Japan. Its mission is to open the doors to people who like the idea of fly-fishing but have always found western fly-fishing too complex, and to excite experienced fly anglers through an undeniably effective but simpler approach to fly-fishing. 

Through frequent visits to Japan, Tenkara USA has developed very strong relationships with tenkara masters. It’s not an exaggeration to say that their introduction of tenkara in Boulder has created a small revolution in the fly-fishing industry. Tenkara USA products have acquired worldwide recognition, applause from their teachers in Japan and passionate devotion by their customers.

” What sets us apart is simple – we have always been dedicated to the philosophy behind tenkara fishing and created unique products based on it. We have an unsurpassed warranty and build our products exceptionally well. Tenkara USA has a rich history of community engagement with videos, excellent products, a community of passionate people and dedication to our planet. We are proud of our involvement with 1% For The Planet and all that our partnership has done and will do.

Our main partnership, Trout Unlimited, shares our visions and priorities. We value what they do, how they do it and we all benefit from their hard work – not just people who fish, but everyone is impacted by their efforts.

We will continue to support Trout Unlimited and as new potential and like-minded organizations join the 1% For The Planet network, we will explore those opportunities as well. Tenkara USA values each one of our partners and fellow members. As a group, we are doing some great things across many types of businesses, non-profits, partners and people dedicated to positive change. By continuing to work in collaboration, we are making incredible impacts. We want to grow that impact. ”
