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 sense, I also love to drift a RS2 behind an CDC & Elk or a Copper John with a midge. We are here in the US and a method of fishing that evolved halfway around the world away will go through some adaptations in a different environment.
Enough said. It's time we all go out fishing enjoy the sport.
