1st Tenkara fish

by Rick
(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.

"There is a time to go long. There is a time to go short. And there is a time to go fishing." - Jesse Livermore


Warning:

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