Circa 1870 Tenkara Scene - "American Sporting Scene - Trout Fishing "

This is another print from the Library of Congress's digital collection that I found while doing my Tenkara research.  As you can see it is a 19th century scene showing men and women on the bank of a river "Tenkara" fishing for trout.  This lithograph is circa 1870 by John Walsh & Co..  The original measure size D (roughly 14" x 20").  I did clean up the image removing the patina.



  1. I do like those old etchings and sketches. Nice to connect to the past visions of how fishing was.

  2. I like the old prints as well, not to mention writings on fly fishing. We get so absorbed in the new we forget our roots. There is a lot to learn from the past which better informs our future.
