The Value of Simplicity

 I do remember a distinct impulse toward simplicity as well as the example of some local fishermen who carried nothing but a rod, a pocketknife, and a handful of flies in a Prince Albert Tobacco tin

Rod length and reach

Some interesting discussion on rod length and reach.  I think some folks may be concerned that using a fixed length line system will not allow them to get their fly out to the fish.  I personally think that forcing the user to fish a controlled line is a major factor as to why tenkara is so effective.
