    Did Erik where a kilt his whole Japan trip? And if so what did the Japanese think of his kilt?

    It seems that Tenkara is being made more and more complicated. When I began Tenkara, I follow Daniel Galhardo’ philosophy and knowledge. Since then, I have never had a problem fly fishing Tenkara style. Now, I read Patagonia’s founder writing a book with Western casting for Tenkara, and dozen of articles about different kinds of flies and casts, etc. I fish a lot and always get trout, and even a steelhead.. Let’s keep Tenkara simple, like the Japanes anglers do it.

    • I tend to keep my tenkara pretty simple too – but I always figure different strokes for different folks. And there’s more variety in tenkara in Japan than many realize I think – personal and regional. I’m hoping John and ERiK will expound on that a bit in the next episode.

what say you?
