Fun Video I Made
by Jimi Fly
I've been making fishing videos on You Tube for a a couple months now. This morning I went down to my local lake in some flip flops with a cup of coffee. I brought my Honryu 380 with the #4 Orange line and one beat up killer bug. I ended up catching around 20 or so but my camera died at the 5th fish. I really like finding a spot and then just squatting down and hauling some fish in. I think this is a great way to slow down your casting stroke and it makes it easier to see subtle strikes on your line. I don't want to toot my own horn but I do think this video illustrates a different view of what Tenkara can be. Hope you like it!

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” - Benjamin Franklin
"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
"There is a time to go long. There is a time to go short. And there is a time to go fishing." - Jesse Livermore
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
