I actually agree that there might be something better to call it than tenkara. However, the term does not equate to necessary fishing a nymph. Whatever you call it is probably a more effective tool for fishing dries. The idea is the long rod and light line allow one to fish a fly while holding the entire line above the water, for all practical purposes eliminating unwanted drag.

And it certainly does have it's limitations, bottomline, it's typically a sub one weight rod. Just as it's probably not a good idea to use your one/two/three weight reeled rod to target king salmon or steelhead, t****** has a niche for which it's most suitable.
