Very interesting.
We have all been saddened by the passing of David Walker. Looking at the above statistics you can see what a major contribution he made to the Foum.
May he rest in peace.

Really interesting statistics.

It tells a lot about its members.

It also tells about the site.

I’m going to miss David. He was the only reason I kept coming back at one point.

I want to see a lot more tenkara, Japanese influences here. Let’s see if that happens now.

I guess I spend a fair amount of time reading here. Not so much posting.

And of course @dwalker was going to be #1 in replies and likes. As the saying goes “we are diminished”

Looking forward to a vibrant 2021.

No kidding.

I am here for tenkara.

Not fishing in the sea chit chat. I fish in the ocean, nothing against it.

I really hope the moderation focuses on tenkara.

That’s why I spend the little time that I do here.

Tenkara

Thank you.

@Adam_Trahan You know, you could start your own Tenkara forum, if this one becomes too annoying :wink: :wink: :wink:

I already have and it’s a really cool place. Filled with Japanese tenkara anglers, and with experts from all over.

Cool. Best of luck with your forum Adam and conversing with experts that talk about tenkara-related things that you find of value.

Thanks.

It’s not about me. I create these places only if I feel there is a need.

I’m not a big fan of managing them, I think it’s best if they manage themselves. I try hard not to create an echo chamber. The best experiences are 360, forums of diversity.

This one is on FB, it’s called “Honryu Tenkara”

I may plug one in to tenkara-fisher at some point in the future if this forum goes south.

I was going to ask if you revived the forum section on tenkara-fisher, then read you just started a FB page.

Who knows, might even be worthwhile logging in to FB to see what’s happening there.

Jason Seaward just joined.

Go ahead and join, I’ll approve your membership.

No problem.

It’s not about me, it’s about mainstream tenkara.

I hope to continue to support this forum. Out of respect to how it was started.

…and for David.
