1st Tenkara fish
(Petersburg , NY , USA)
April 4th, first nice day of trout season in upstate NY. First day ever with Tenkara. Kiyotaki 27 and olive Tenkara fly. I fished a small creak that I fished as teenager often, 50 years ago. The section that I fished was a group of pools with good water. I had the good luck to get a 16" Brown trout. Tenkara is a big part of a new path in my life, being retried and fighting cancer. A good day.

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
