    The gizmo is a simple cup hook and can be added to any net. Pre-drill a hole add a drop of epoxy or not and screw the cup hook in. It's pretty nifty. However if you're using a frame with a net bag...

    I think they're all good points. A blind man doesn't play hide and seek and expect to win.

    pszy,

    I agree with both you and Chris in that the tool should work just fine without taking the fish out of the water. I mentioned that in my earlier comment and your comment confirms it. One of...

    I prefer to use a pair of combo scissor clamps. This is what I usually use here but I also have some of these that work well too. I have always eyed the Ketchum Release tool and thought it looks...

    T-Bum's "Starter Kit's" are very nice high quality kit's, and shouldn't be confused with "entry level" equipment. A "starter kit" with a Shimano or Nissin rod from Tenkarabum.com are a better choice...

    Golden,

    I have to agree with you on your point about rod flash. Anglers have been saying it for many many years now that we want more rod options with a matt finish on them. I'm not a chick and...

    Danny, I agree with what you say for the most part. We truly never know who we're typing to on the other side of the screen. I guess I hadn't really thought of fishing forums as social media, well at...

    Ahh, I forgot about the Gamakatsu Multiflex rods. Chris, you're the second person today that's reminded me of them. And yeah the Gamakatsu's are a bit pricey. But I still want one in my hand's.

    I...

    Gamechangers?... Well technically this may be true.

    I don't know of any other double zoom "TENKARA" rods on the market. I'm probably wrong about this, I just haven't seen any others. I have seen...

    As I see it, there is no doubt that TUSA is upping their game by offering these new rod designs, and I believe as things pan out this will be good for everybody. I think it's in direct response to...

    Yes, you are correct Golden. I do own both gripped rods e.g. cork, foam, wood and rattan gripped rods as well as a few non-gripped or graphite gripped rods. I find inherent qualities in all of them,...

    That's a nice write up. Sounds like the author Jimi fly had a great day out. No argument here that the non grip rods have much more sensitivity to them. But I'm sure that if you're waiting to feel a...

    If your willing to pay top dollar for a used one then why not just buy one from Tenkarabum http://www.tenkarabum.com/suntech-kurenai.html.

    I agree as well. Too expensive for a first run tenkara rod coming from a company that has little knowledge of tenkara. Not worth $100 IMO.

    I also agree that Chris is at the top of his game. He's...

    Well this is a tough one for me too because I'm a fly tier and a tinkerer as well. I guess if I had to choose just one fly based on fishing it for fun and action, I would choose my old friend the...

    I'm not a fan of this idea. I've landed some very big trout on a tenkara rod and 6x tippet without doing something that is in my opinion reckless and unnecessary. I know that Golden has also landed...

    I agree! Some folks are never satisfied, and that's ok. It's their own way. For me it's either a Tenkara rod or it's a Fly Rod. ONE OR THE OTHER! They both have a purpose and they both do what...

    I have the 10' model and I really like the rod. It's very light (2.1oz), has a nice cork grip, and balances out really well. Casts a #3 or #3.5 line very well as well as the TUSA 10.5' furled line....

    I haven't seen the DFS rod, but if it is indeed "identical" to the TUSA Ito, it probably wasn't the best idea to market it as "our own version of the Ito, made by the same rod manufacturer". The...
