TenkaraBum Winter Challenge 8" rainbow on a size 20 SJ Worm
8 inch rainbow
I just received a Nissin starter kit (360 7:3). The rod is stiffer than I thought (this is my first tenkara rod), so I had no idea. I quickly tied a pink SJ worm on a size 20 hook and hit the water. The water temp was about 42 degrees, and no other takers today. This is my first fish on a tenkara rod.
