  4. http://www.LearnTenkara.com Can tenkara handle big fish? Many Western-style fly anglers mistakenly believe that landing large fish is not possible with a tenkara rod. In this myth-busting video, Daniel Galhardo demonstrates just how well tenkara deals with big fish as he easily handles a 20″ Madison River wild brown trout with his four-ounce, soft-action Ito rod. The trout comes to net at least as fast as a rod-and-reel rig would have done it, and the fish has plenty of energy left as Daniel releases it.
