Five species of fish and only two trips

by Jordan
(San Angelo texas)

Weather here in West Texas has warmed up great and I have only really spent about five hours on the water but I have fished only Tenkara! Anybody that might look down on a person here in west Texas for fishing with wimpy rods light lines and of course small flies I am here to testify that tenkara is about the greatest way of catching a fish that I have ever experienced. Period!

It's so simple and it works on all fish that eat live or living prey! Two trips and I have caught five species of fish! Normally when I go out with my normal tackle I am targeting one type of fish or the other and that's what I catch and all I catch but with one fly a rod and line and nothing else it seems something is always biting and every bite is a total surprise. I never know what is going to be on the end of my line!

Just thought I would share what I have discovered in tenkara!

“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.
