Fountainhead Tenkara Rods
I purchased a Fountainhead Caddis 330 and Stonefly 360. I can tell the difference between the 2 rods but it is hard. These are my first tenkara rods and as such I have little to compare them to. The quality seems good and I am really enjoying fishing with them. The TenkaraBum #4 fluorocarbon line is awesome in low light. I recently caught 2 14" rainbows on the Stonefly and it worked nicely. I also hooked and lost a 18" plus fish but due to my position I was unable to fight the fish effectively and it broke my line (7x). I feel that if I had been in a better position I would have been able to catch that fish. I seem to be able to detect more strikes on tenkara than with my standard fly gear. I caught almost all my recent fish on a #14 olive birds nest nymph. This fly is quickly becoming my go to fly. Loving tenkara.

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.
