SkyMall Tenkara?

Was flying to Philly from Jacksonville yesterday and picked up the copy of SkyMall in the back of the seat in front of me to pass a bit of the time.

After paging past indoor doggie pottys and zombie lawn ornaments, I noticed a telescopic fishing rod for sale for $30.

  2. Why not? Does it ruin the "aura" of being a tenkara cult member if everyone does it? I thought the goal was to get everyone into tenkara fishing? :) The truth is, I don't think this is going to be the next "Pocket Fisherman" so don't worry. The sovereignty of tenkara fishing is safe. For now. :) lol

  3. Just FYI - I've seen a ton of these plastic tenkara rods on Amazon over the last couple weeks.
