The summit's keynote speaker, Dr. Hisao Ishigaki, came all the from Japan, he is widely regarded in Japan and abroad as tenkra fishing master. I really wish I could speak Japanese so I speak with him, because he is incredibly passionate about fishing.
One of my blogging and Face Book friends that I was anxious to meet was Anthony Naples, who did the amazing poster for the summit.
Tenkara on the Fly". I had a a photograph of our fishing, but it didn't turn out. Sorry Karel! I guess you'll have to come back to Utah for that opportunity or I guess I can visit you. I also met Ashley and Brian from Learn Tenkra dot com, it was great to meet them and learn how much of a fan of my photography they are. Thanks you two and thanks for the video!
I will end this chapter of the 2012 Tenkara Summit with portrait I did of another of my Face Book blogging friends that I wanted to meet at the summit, the "Troutrageous" "Tenkara Sasquatch" Mike.
Now on to day two for some fishing photographs!
