Tenkara Skeptic

by Anonymous

Wow, what an elaborate website. It is very informative. I just can't see using a $150 "cane pole" to dab flies as being all that exciting. Simplicity is one thing, but this appears to be a way to avoid learning the silent art of fly fishing.

I suppose each has his own choices, but Tenkara seems, to this sportsman, a really good money maker for someone. I really like the idea of a blog where the majority of the posts are hocking gear that will make one's Tenkara experience genuine.

On a positive note, I did tie up a few reversed soft hackles and they seem to work pretty well.

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.
