I am just outside of philly in the burbs..
I dabble in Renaissance re enactment so the study of fly fishing in “period” is of interest to me. The Tenkara would be closer to more of what they “England” would have been using at the time. Medieval India however seems to have beaten the English to the punch in 1100ad.. But Japan.. and China were also pretty clever.. so I’m also looking for resources from those areas as well. And these are things that occupy my mind when I see flies, rods and fish..
I was recently asked if I would consider volunteering with female veterans on tying and fishing with the healing waters project held at several Veterans hospitals. https://projecthealingwaters.org/programs/
