TenkaraBum Challenge - Shortnose Gar
by Alan Luecke
(Kansas City, MO)
I returned to Indian Creek with renewed focus and a bigger net. And also a good location tip from Zach Janssen a local carp on the fly specialist. The setup for both fish was the Kiyose 33SF with a size 12 bead head Killer Bugger.
If you're going after a lot of gar some heavy scud hooks would be a good idea.

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