TenkaraBum No Vise Challenge - First Timer

by Roy Davison
(Prescott Valley)

I made this fly similar to that of my last entry, since it was of the same batch. A dry fly hook, brown sewing thread, some separated yarn, partridge hackle, and deer hair. This one had the addition of some gold/bronze colored wire. I used it to catch 21 sunfish and bluegills, and 1 five-inch bass in my local lake. Although I catch plenty of fish to enjoy spending time there, I know I can catch much more, most of the fish I see are about 1/2 to 3/4 the size of the smallest one you see here. So I think I may have to add some tanago hooks or at least some 32s to my inventory soon.
