Jason Sparks

is the founder of “Appalachian Tenkara Anglers”, a leading online tenkara community. His drive to grow this movement in the US brought together the one multi-vendor tenkara gathering known as “Tenkara Jam.” A Navy Veteran, he has fished the world in waters from the Azores to the Appalachians.

Chris Stewart

(AKA the Tenkara Bum) grew up in Colorado and learned to fly fish on the small mountain streams that are ideal tenkara water. Now living in NYC, he is the owner, CEO & shipping clerk of TenkaraBum LLC. He usually can’t be found because he’s wearing camo.

ERiK Ostrander

loves to fish, and if he wasn’t married he’d fish seven days a week. He began using Western fly fishing techniques for trout, but fell in love with the simplicity and effectiveness of Tenkara. Passion for fishing, guiding,and teaching Tenkara defines ERiK.


Chris "Kiwi" Kuhlow

Matt Sment

can't stay still for very long. His love of adventure and the outdoors is always driving him to explore new places and try new things. A discussion about ultralight outdoors equipment prompted him to give Tenkara a try, and he's been "hooked" ever since.

Mike Lutes

is a lifelong outdoorsman. This early interest was fostered by the Boy Scouts, and for that he is eternally grateful. He doesn't always fish Tenkara, but when he does, he catches fish. Usually. He is also a healthcare professional and a devoted husband and father.

Michael McFarland

has been an avid fly fisherman for 9 years. It’s a passion that started shortly after a day trip to Rocky Mountain National Park that quickly turned this historically saltwater angler into someone that has made high altitude fly fishing part of his daily life. Michael has showcased his kebari patterns at several Trout Unlimited tying clinics and at the Denver Fly Fishing Show.
