Ready? *Cue the drum roll* Introducing...Tenkara USA Tea!
Huh? Yeah, I said tea. Like the drink.

Now I know...tenkara is Japanese...and the Japanese have an affection for tea. I get that in a totally non-stereotypical kind of way. However I always took tenkara as a Four Loko kind of fishing discipline myself.
But that also got me thinking. What other things do the Japanese enjoy that would make perfect product line extensions for Tenkara USA? Here's a few I thought of, but I'd love to hear your ideas in the comments section (don't be scared). Heck if you want to get imaginative, do your own bad photoshop and email it to me at troutrageous1(at)yahoo.com and I'll post it.
Daniel, I hope you're taking notes...
|Baseball Equipment - Searching for a new Ichiro|
|A game for Nintendo Wii. No wires (or reels) necessary!|
|Performance headwear for competititve eaters|
|Vending Machine Novelties. Yeah, I went there.|
On a serious note, Tenkara USA does a great job with the content on their blog. You can check it out HERE. I'm also a big fan of their videos, such as this newly posted fly tying short.
