A Cautionary Tale
I would like to remind everybody to tell a family member or friend where you will be fishing and when you plan on returning. And please carry the" 10 essentials". 2 years ago I slipped off a log and broke my ankle while Tenkara fishing. I will never forget the image of my foot facing the wrong direction. Fortunately I had enough cell signal to call for help. Between my dog barking and the whistle I had in my pack the rescuers were able to find me. It took 2 surgeries and a plate and 12 screws to put my ankle back together. After a very long and painful recovery, I’m grateful to be alive and able to walk and fish. So try your best to be prepared for the unexpected.

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
