I’ve had a good talk with several veteran tenkara anglers and here are some of my thoughts on the current state of the tenkaraverse. I think we all really need to stick together and realize that even though the sport has grown, we’re still a niche within a niche, within a niche. We should all be supporting each other rather than fighting each other. After all, this is our reverie–the sport that transport us from the drudgery of everyday life. Why ruin it with ego, slander and hate. Isn’t that what we’re trying to get a break from on the water?
