Tenkara in Focus Coffee Break: Isaac & the Big Iwana

TiF Coffee Break Video - Your 10 minute Tenkara Fix

Isaac Tait runs the excellent Fallfish Tenkara (exploring Japan one river at a time) - and we were lucky enough to fish with him in England when he came over to attend his brother's wedding.  We were delighted when we realised we had a chance to hook up in Japan...

On our summer 2017 Japanese filming odyssey, Go Ishii delivered us into Isaac's capable hands for an adventure in Katashina. Isaac has already written a wonderful photo-essay on our fishing day on his site here: Fallfish Tenkara; Katashina.

But one bit of the story Isaac missed out was something that DEFINITELY stood out for me and JP...check out what happens when you hook a big iwana and it snags you in the rocks - so long as you have a US marine on hand...
