1st Tenkara fish

by Rick
(Petersburg , NY , USA)

April 4th, first nice day of trout season in upstate NY. First day ever with Tenkara. Kiyotaki 27 and olive Tenkara fly. I fished a small creak that I fished as teenager often, 50 years ago. The section that I fished was a group of pools with good water. I had the good luck to get a 16" Brown trout. Tenkara is a big part of a new path in my life, being retried and fighting cancer. A good day.

Rick, I think the Babylonians were probably right when they said "The gods do not deduct from man's allotted span the hours spent in fishing."

Fight on!
