Vertical Presentation

by Mark L
(Cornville AZ)

Been a fly fishing for 40 yrs. I started using loop reels 6.5 glass 2wt, really long greased furl leaders. Either watched trout flash when they stopped nymph, or followed slowly sinking ripper. Tedious but effective. However breezes of rivers such as the Green, San Juan etc. pretty much negated doing this. The vertical presentation with Tenkara effective in these situations. Pretty cool. Fish don't usually know "what hit them". Plus, Tenkara is a blast as well as very suited to these stealthy techniques.
