FAOL has done a great service to the tenkara community by hosting this forum. From the beginning, it has been a place where members can exchange tips and techniques, and most importantly, where people who are curious can get their questions answered by someone who has actually done it and can speak from experience.

I remember seeing somewhere a question asking if 2012 would be the "year of tenkara." I don't know about that, but based on my own business and the emails I get, the growth is clearly accelerating. I suspect there will be more people stopping by here from other FAOL forums to see what all the buzz is about.

I think FAOL deserves our support and I am happy to give it by becoming a sponsor.
