First Tenkara Trip
I just want to say a big thanks to Chris once again for all of the help, advice, the flies and the lines. I got everything in a couple days ago and took today off to get out on the river. I had my first Tenkara fish in hand in less than 5 casts, the second in another 5. I fished for about 4 hours up and down a small river. I fished the #3 and #4 level lines and the Sakasa Kebari with peacock herl body and hen pheasant soft hackle. It worked great. I got a number of small fish from 5-6 inches up to a couple in the 10 inch range. Everything worked great and for my first day of Tenkara Fishing I am a very happy customer. I will be back for some more flies and lines along with any other great accessories offered at the TenkaraBum Store.
“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin
"Study to be quiet." - Izaak Walton 1653
"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662
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.
