Is Tenkara Expanding?

Going fishing? Take a tenkara angler :) Or take a western fly-angler, show them tenkara fly-fishing, and brag about how you caught 5x more fish than they did (if they didn't take your tenkara rod from you that is).

Is Tenkara Expanding?

I think it is, Look who's talking Tenkara...

Our guide business is doing just fine. I think it is expanding. If it does stop expanding, we will probably feel the impact pretty quickly.

I agree with John. Looks like we're quickly doubling the number of tenkara trips we booked last year. I'm in our fly shop daily when not guiding, and the tenkara products are going out the door on a steady pace. It's definitely expanding.

i think you need to look for the redshift to determining if the tenkaraverse is expanding or not...
