a many many day in the land of enchantment

I haven't fished my Nissin Fine Mode 270 much this year so I took it along on a trip last week. Three different spots with three different sizes of stockers.
Fished two methods. First was a small shot with a bit of floating trout worm. Second was a salmon egg under a tiny float. Both methods worked.
One spot had shelf ice and the rod is just great for holding the float out in mid current. Another spot had a deep slot and the shot and trout worm worked well dragging it off the sandy shallows and into the slot.
Have to admit I fished a UL spinning rod for a bit too but Tenkara/Keiryu is just such fun with a fish on and works better sometimes.

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.
