The biggest thing tenkara brings us is a different mindset, a different way of thinking about fly-fishing.
Tenkara tells us we don’t have to worry about bugs that are hatching. It tells us that if we decide to leave floatant and split-shot behind we can. And, it tells us fly fishing is not complicated and cluttered with equipment.
Tenkara can be more than just fishing, it is a paradigm shift in fly fishing.
