    Is that an open event, i.e. can anybody go regardless of FFF affiliation? Or do you need to be a member?

    I am quite frankly tired of the bashing, bickering and talking by "puristss/traditionalists" down to folks who embrace "their own tenkara". As much as I love fishing with one fly in the traditional...

    I got several wading staffs that I haven't been using but should - a point I will make during this Winter or at the latest next Spring.

    I might be fishing both rods this weekend; I fished the 43MF just a week ago for the first time and was very impressed. It feels stiff, just like the Amago, but not as top heavy. I caught a bunch of...

    They look like "flymphs" to me, anybody know the difference? I have been playing lately with tying my kebaris with palmered hackle, although only the thorax, not the entire fly.

    I might be wrong but I don't think they had cork handles on bamboo tenkara rods before the introduction of telescopic carbon fiber or fibre glass tenkara rods... Would those bamboo tenkara rods not...

    I add it to all my lines - level or furled/traditional. I would argue that its actually light enough not to break water surface tension by itself. you can attach it easily to a level or tippet with a...

    I don't think you will need a hera rod for the occasional big bass. A "stiffer" tenkara rod like the Tenkara USA Amago or Yamame with appropriate tippet should perform just fine. You would be...

    I did last year, but fishing was very slow. Traditional tenkara techniques are not as effective, so dead-drifting midges (if necessary with a mini strike indicator) might be the name of the game....

    I concur with what was said, I would recommend Fountainhead's Caddis rods if $$ is a big concern. A 8/2 rod seems to me to be far too stiff for trout and gills (although I am sure it will work).

    There is no reason whey they wouldn't work on a "Western" fly fishing rig, but they will likely require the "appropriate presentation".

    I would define Tenkara style flies that historically...

    Cool, Igor's site has a lot of options (maybe too much, lol) if you start out with Tenkara. I would be interested to see some pictures and maybe a review of this rod?
