Well, what do you know? Daniel Galhardo, founder of Tenkara USA, subtly laid down his position on the Tenkara Civil War in his latest episode of the Tenkara Cast. Daniel is widely known to be pretty traditionalist in his approach to tenkara, very much influenced by his mentor Dr. Hisao Ishigaki. But he also fishes for panfish with a tenkara rod, and he calls it "tenkara." I imagine he sees this as just good business sense, because many more people have access to panfish and bass than mountain stream trout. He and his guests T.J. Ferreira (also of Tenkara USA) and Bart Lombardo from the blog Panfish on the Fly relate some good advice for tenkara panfishing. Give it a listen!
