Sure, I appreciate your point that there’s potential for what I said to be misinterpreted @Gressak. Whilst that wasn’t my intention, my intent also doesn’t matter.
The point being is that I appreciate the original inquiry by @jason_seaward. It is thoughtful and seems to come from a genuine place of wanting to learn. That is in contrast to so much of what I see happening around tenkara these days.
I completely agree with your keen observations via your daughter. Tenkara is an highly accessible form of angling, infinitely more so than western fly fishing.
Hahaha, saying the rabbit hole is deep, is an understatement.
Agreed, we will all plateau. Whilst that is true and it is good to accept that, it shouldn’t hinder us from continuing to learn.
Gressak is too kind in his words and much more humble than I. He’s much better than he claims that he is at tenkara.
Sure, you may well be on a slower road by choice or circumstance or whatever it may be, but you’re still learning. That’s evident by watching you fish and by what you think/talk about.
