One of the other appeals of tenkara is that it puts some magic in any fish--little bluegills, tiny trout, others. This grayling pictured here was caught on a tenkara rod, and it's the "how" that makes this fish a particularly fond fishing memory. If anything, I think tenkara will grow in popularity as people try to land fish like baby tarpon, northern pike, and other fish. Muskies on tenkara? You'll have to ask John Merwin about that.
