Default Re: Tenkara Forum?

Since I was the one who brought this up thought I should also add my own take. After reading all the posts, didn't mean to open a can of worms here, I can see both sides of this issue with many fine points being made here. I think that those who don't want to expand there knowledge of other styles don't have to go to the category if they have no interest in Tenkara.

Just as some have made the point about Czech nymphing being a euro thing that is now accepted as fly fishing when there is no casting at all, you flop! Chech style is really a form of drop shotting that the japanese refined years and years ago using spinning tackle. So if we want to talk straight fly fishing do we talk about dry fly fishing only?

I would like to believe that we can get beyond personal prejudices and learn new things and evolve the sport as each person would like to pursue. Anyway, just my personal thoughts on the subject

Happy Easter to all!
