Tenkara Today by Morgan Lyle, who will speak at Arts of the Angler on Saturday, Nov. 9, at 1 p.m.

Morgan Lyle, author of the recently released Tenkara Today, will discuss his book on Saturday, Nov. 9, at 1 p.m. as part of Arts of the Angler at the Catskill Fly Fishing Center & Museum.

Lyle will have books available in the main museum building.

In 2009, the first American public presentation on tenkara fishing took place at the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum. Ten years later, Morgan Lyle’s new book, Tenkara Today, chronicles the rise of Japanese-style fixed-line fly fishing in the United States. Tenkara Today tells the story of a movement that has left its mark on American outdoor recreation, through in-depth profiles of people who introduced tenkara to the western world, and explains how, when and where to practice this effective and enjoyable form of fly fishing.

Morgan Lyle is the author of Simple Flies: 52 Easy-to-Tie Patterns That Catch Fish. He has written for the New York Outdoor News and has published dozens of articles in magazines including The Drake, Fly Tyer, American Angler and many more. A native of the Hudson Valley, Morgan cast his first fly on Esopus Creek in the Catskill Mountains. He’s fished extensively in the Catskills, Adirondacks, New England, Colorado and Montana, as well as the beaches and spring creeks of Long Island. He lives today in Brooklyn, New York.
