    That exchange was a few years ago, but there are still skeptics around (and probably always will be). I got an email from a customer yesterday describing a seminar that a nationally known fly...

    I can't give you a definitive answer because I suspect there are others I don't know about.
    Here are the ones I do know of:
    Tenkara - fly fishing on mountain streams (and "main streams" ie. rivers...

    Blogger activity and forum activity are not a good indicators. By far, most people who buy rods and go fishing do not blog and do not participate on any of the forums. They may read them, but they...

    doftya,

    The net you saw was on tenkara.com not tenkarausa.com. I do not know of anyone else who as made one like it.

    I tend to agree with Golden on this one. The stream certainly looked like one on which I would use a rod shorter than either the 3m Gamakatsu or the 3.2m Suntech. Although I have fished with rods as...

    I'd say you were fishing with a fly but not fly fishing.

    As to who makes the rules, I think it is generally the state fish and game commission. I have a bigger beef with the "why" than the "who."...

    The only way to know is to test several of them until they break - at different rod angles. I don't sell enough of them to break a bunch of rods on purpose. A guy who reported catching 20" trout...

    The Kiyotaki rods are surprisingly capable for their size. The largest fish I've caught tenkara fishing was a 20" smallmouth on a Kiyotaki 24. I think you'll find that you can put just as much...

    The Soyokaze rods are really nice little rods. I am so disappointed that Daiwa discontinued them. I'll keep looking for a good replacement. I should get a few Nissin Fine Mode Kosansui 270 rods in...

    I received my first true tenkara rod in January or February of 2008. I had been playing around with crappie rods trying to recreate the British loop rods during the summer and fall of 2007. I first...

    It really is amazing how people who just a few years ago thought nothing of carrying a two or three piece fly rod now recoil at the idea of a tenkara rod that collapses to the same length as their...

    Larry, why would it be any different? You can approach fly fishing and tenkara pretty much the same way. Fly fishing can be very simple. You can fish in most places with three patterns (elk hair...

    Danny, I didn't make myself clear. The point I wanted to make was not about tenkara, it was about regulations trying to preserve "fly fishing" rather than preserving the health of the fishery.
