    I like using my tenkara gear to catch: Smaller size fish (say 8-12" / 20-30cm)
    I like using my tenkara rod in: Larger streams or rivers

    Very informative on the Tenkara concept. Touches on the contrasts of Orient and Occident philosophy. Scanning to the different videos is helpful. I would say an essential resource.
