Tenkara Vs. Large Brown Trout

Tenkara, much like fiberglass fly rods, is surrounded with the myth that the method is best only on small waters and tiny fish.  I would certainly say that is not so since after fishing tenkara off and on over the past several years I'd rather use it on open rivers out west and stick to my seven foot and under glass rods for rivers covered with canopy from above.

Big Fish Tenkara: Daniel Galhardo vs. Large Brown Trout from Ashley Valentine on Vimeo.

Danial Galhardo of Tenkara USA recently tangled with a twenty inch brown trout from the Madison River in Montana and this video should help dispel the bad rap that tenkara is just for tiny fish.

Tenkara can catch large fish...but you just have to be stealth about it.
