    This website is difficult to navigate with a smartphone. Anyway. I had the discomfort of meeting the tenkara rep in boulder at mcguckins. What started out as a casual conversation about fishing ended in a treatise on how he hasn’t used anything but a tenkara rod for years and wouldn’t even entertain any other type of fishing. “If I can’t fish tenkara I’ll just drink wisky”. Ouch! I told him I was throwing flies on a spin rod with a casting bubble because of the high winds and blowing snow. His comment? ‘ I haven’t used a spin rod in 40 years and probably never will again’. He told me he had never tried the casting bubble method and would never try it. I’m not sure how he expects people to be receptive to a new method of fishing when he can’t even pretend to be interested in other methods he himself hasn’t tried. My impression of YOUR rep. What a pompous ass!!

    • Miles, thanks for the feedback on both the site and the employee at our dealer. Please know that whomever you spoke with is not our rep, but an employee of the store we work with. Not a great approach regardless so we appreciate learning about that.
