TenkaraBum Challenge - Yellow Perch
by Chris Stewart
(New York City)
You hear stories of fly fishermen catching fish as they are reeling in their line, with the fly hanging in the current directly below them.
This little perch was caught after I had collapsed the rod, taken off the line, and was coiling the line to put it away. All of a sudden there was a fish on the line! I didn't even know there were perch in that stream!

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