First garfish on fly
My setup was a Shimotsuke tenkara 3.3, 7ft of level line, 3ft of 1lb test tippet #32 white killer bugger with a Unibobber as a float. Caught my first eastern sea garfish on a fly.

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.
