From The Editor Summer is in full swing...

Summer is pretty damn awesome. Longer days, warmer temperatures, pool parties, BBQ, family vacations, and flip flops 24-7. All of that is great and makes for fantastic memories that will surely last forever.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAA

Summer is also an excellent time to break out the fixed-line techniques. Getting up early to get a jump on a largemouth bass, sneaking into position to cast to a huge carp, or just straight out blowing up panfish after panfish on topwater are all awesome summer fishing pursuits. Trout anglers, fear not. The dog days of summer do not necessarily mean the end of your fishing. While you may need to go a little more off the grid, it's impossible not to appreciate the escape to the cool water and shaded canopy that the many species of trout we chase with tenkara rods call home. It's worth the extra "hike-in," so get after it! In short, summer is a fantastic time to celebrate all types of fishing with tenkara rods, I hope you're going to be out doing your share. I'd like to take the opportunity to thank everybody that participated in this issue's Cover Photo Contest. You've likely already seen Anthony

Naples' winning submission, but I encourage you to view the rest of the entrants throughout this issue, with a special grouping of photos starting on page 4. On the whole, this quarter's issue is a little leaner than usual, (I hope that means everybody is out fishing instead of writing), but that doesn't mean the content isn't interesting and top shelf. There are eight separate entries, highlighted by a trip to Japan and chance on-stream encounter with Masami Sakakibara by Chris Lynch. This issue also features two authors new to the Tenkara Angler family; Nathan Scott Camp and Kengo Shintaku. Welcome gentlemen! I hope you enjoy reviewing this issue, particularly paging through all of the additional photography, as it was very enjoyable to assemble. Keep cool & tight lines!
