First time Tenkara newbie
by Robert Rotolo
I purchased the Kurenai HM33R. After attaching level line, tippet, some fly I had for years, went to a local pond to try it out. I was catching sunfish and bluegills with every cast. So off to the local trout stream, after several casts, a trout took the fly, I was not ready and did not react quickly enough, so Monster fish in question spit it out.
Now I need to practice getting my response time down.
Any way, it was a ball.
The rod was so light it was a pleasure casting sideways, to avoid overhanging fly eating trees.
“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.
