Tenkara!

So I just listened to this, watched this, then got really excited about Tenkara! (For some reason I think that Tenkara! should always have an exclamation point next to it) Maybe it’s the telescoping rod, the backwards flies, the simplicity or the fact that it is a deadly way to go fishing, but I need to try it. I don’t know what got me so fired up about it, but even as I write this there is a sense of wonder and adventure swirling around my head. I equate it to the feeling I get when talking about Steelhead. The people that really get Tenkara are very much like those who understand the zen of Steelhead fishing: the joy of fishing Tenkara or for Steelhead comes from the journey not the result.

  1. Hey there! This post could not be written any better!
    Reading through this post reminds me of my old room mate!

    He always kept talking about this. I will
    forward this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read.
    Thank you for sharing!

  2. If you are unhappy in any area of your life, do something about it, no matter how difficult.
    Although a sheltered SUV, truck or car will give better
    gas mileage, it will perhaps more importantly give more
    miles and life span too. You may also read all
    you need to know pertaining to diagnostic
    and repair details in these manuals.

  3. Gaming communities really do have that sense of community about them, as
    serious and frequent gamers have the chance to get to know each other, and form partnerships and even become enemies, of
    course only in the game form, in real life it is no such thing.
    Real 360 download center review – So dont make
    the identical mistake I created with this crummy download internet site.
    In this Pro – Flight – Simulator Assessment I will
    go more than the products, pros and cons.
