Ambidextrous Tenkara?

by Bill Piatek

I'm a righty but I used to fly fish lefty occasionally. Now that my right shoulder is nearly shot I've been thinking about ambidextrous tenkara fishing.

Seems to me it might be nice for those spots where it's hard to get a cast off.

Anybody do a lot of tenkara with the non-dominant arm?

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” - Benjamin Franklin

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." -
Col. Robert Venables 1662

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
