“The more you know, the less you need”

Everyone it seems is talking about it. Some with praise, others condemning. Love it or hate it, its simple, stripped back,  ..just less.

What am I talking about?  That 'fad' to quote Lefty Kray, or perhaps 'one of the oldest established forms of fly fishing known'.

Yes its Tenkara.

And guess what, .......mine arrived today.

Woo hoo, can't wait for the weekend to try it out.


  1. congratulation on a new rod! It surely looks sweet!
    I yet have to catch the Tenkara bug - having a rod bend in my hands while actually casting a line gives me too much a pleasure to do without - but the philosophy of simple approach is enticing. Especially in our over gadgeted sport :)

    Have fun!
