With how crazy my life is getting with three kids and work, and more work, I tend to follow the K.I.S.S. rule whenever possible. In other words, Keep It Simple Stupid.
But this whole Tenkara craze is probably a little too simple, at least in my eyes.
I'm interested in the idea of Tenkara -- which is a style of rod (without the reel) invented some 500-plus years ago by commercial anglers hunting trout in Japan -- but not interested in trying it other than maybe once, just because I love to hear my reel scream when I'm on a big fish.
But, you see, Tenkara doesn't use a reel, as the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writes in a recent column.
Tenkara doesn't use a fly line either, which, doesn't really sit well with this fly fisher.
Other than that, looks like fun.
