Heck spey rods and switch rods are more sought after and in vogue than Tenkara. I have zero interest in Tenkara. I been doing that myself without calling it anything and before I knew it was "Tenkara". Guess I could pull an Al Gore here. Hey guys, "I" invented Tenkara fishing. How about that? Reckon I will win the Nobel Peace Prize?....The Japanese stole it from me though. <grin>

But I does like reading about spey and switch rods and casting and fishing techniques.l
