First fish on #32 fly

by Jai
(N.S.W,Australia )

The setup was a Shimotsuke tenkara 3.3 with 7' of level line, 3ft of 1.8lb tippet and a #32 white killer bugger. I hooked a 2" yellowfin bream but he threw the hook before I landed it, but the next fish was a 4" hardyhead I landed it, my first fish on a #32 fly and my first true micro.

Congratulations on your first micro and your first fish on a #32 hook. Do you have a photo of it so you could enter it into the TenkaraBum Winter Challenge?

Jai, once you have submitted a "My Tenkara Stories" page, I don't think you can then add photos. I can add them, though, so send them as an entry for the Winter Challenge and I will also put them on this page.

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.
