Matt Sment has been guiding and instructing Tenkara anglers for over 3 years as co-owner of Badger Tenkara. He is a regular presenter at the Appalachian Tenkara Jam, Midwest Tenkara Fest, fly-fishing expos, and Trout Unlimited events. His articles have been featured in Kype, Tenkara Angler, and Wisconsin Trout magazines. Matt is proud to call the trout-filled spring creeks of the Wisconsin Driftless region his home water, but enjoys applying the principles of tenkara fishing to pursue a wide variety of species. He is a former US Army Paratrooper and a graduate of the North Carolina Outward Bound Outdoor Leadership school. His career in the outdoor education, leadership, and training fields stretches nearly two decades.
Mike Lutes is a lifelong outdoorsman. His early interest in the outdoors was fostered by the Boy Scouts of America, and for that he is eternally grateful. After getting frustrated with “regular” fly fishing, he found the simplicity of Tenkara undeniably charming. 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. All of his kids have caught fish with Tenkara.
