The Tenkara Movement

Yesterday I wrote a post I titled the “The Tenkara Industry”. It would have been equally apt to title it “The Tenkara Movement”, for that’s what it is. I talked about how I enjoy not being the “only crazy dancer” around, with a link to a 3 minute video. I suspect most people wouldn’t have clicked it. This video, narrated by Derek Sivers, is one of my favorite video clips and I wanted to share it with you. It shows, in under 3 minutes, how a movement is started. This is exactly what’s happened to tenkara, which is not just a category within fly-fishing but a movement of sorts. Thank you all for joining in the movement and making me not feel like a “lone nut”. Just pretend that instead of dancing in the park you’re seeing people fishing without a reel.

“As more people jump in, it’s no longer risky. If they were on the fence before, there’s no reason not to join now. They won’t be ridiculed, they won’t stand out, and they will be part of the in-crowd, if they hurry.” – Derek Sivers
