Tenkara is not dapping – not that there’s anything wrong with that. Tenkara is casting. I always try to make this point when discussing tenkara with folks. If one imagines that tenkara is dapping then they don’t really have the correct information to decide whether tenkara is something that they might like to try.
This is a nice short video showing Tenkara USA founder Daniel Galhardo doing some fishing with a long line. You get to see some tenkara casting, tenkara-style fish landing and a nice sized fish taken. But my favorite part is the image at the very end – a beautiful picture of a long tenkara cast caught mid-air.
