Greetings Mr. Stewart,
Many many thanks for being a resource to this angler. In the short time that I've been aware of and used your Tenkara knowledge it has already facilitated a ton of pure fishing joy.
I wish I had known about Tenkara when I was a kid. I might have never touched a spinning reel.
The brown stockie in the photo was caught in a local county park on a peach blood dot single egg pattern, 3ft of 5x tippet and a Cutthroat Leaders tenkara indicator leader 11'8". This may be an odd setup but it works incredibly well on PA's more weary fall trout. I'm still learning and enjoying every minute of it.

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.
