TenkaraBum Challenge - Red Shiner
by Alan Luecke
(Kansas City, MO)
Stopped by the Blue River on the way home from work. The Blue is usually pretty murky and slow. Not good for sight fishing. Found these in a slow riffle where I could see in the shallow water. The whole school would swarm the fly. I'd wait a bit and raise the line. Sometimes there'd be a fish.

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