Re: Tenkara Forum?
I can only speak for myself, but I see no negative issue having a Tenkara forum. I am mostly a western fly fisher, but I do like to bring a Tenkara rod when hiking and while fishing with my kids. I have written many times in the past that Tenkara is a great way of getting new Fly Fishers into the sport. The equipment is relatively inexpensive and you still get the excitement and satisfaction of catching fish. What better way of attracting new fly fishers to the sport. I have personally witnessed many Tenkara only Fishers make the jump into Western Fly Fishing. Tenkara brings fishers to the river and they soon realize that they may need to cast further than the Tenkara rod will allow. At this time, they are no longer only a tenkara fisher, but more importantly a fisher… We “the fly fishing community” need more young fly fishers getting into the sport. Why would we do anything to dismiss any young/new fishers?
