Great Keiryu Story!
by Les Albjerg
Chris - Nice to hear a Keiryu story! I am also loving seeing one of my favorite rods the Suntech Keiryu Sawanobori 63. One of the problems with this format is we can't discuss your great story!
Last time out with the Sawanobori 63, I fished a new ultra-light method in the Boise River. Many of us fly fisherman love fishing the egg sucking leech pattern. I was fishing a Keiryu variation that I call the "Egg sucking Red Wiggler". I thread a salmon egg on the hook, and then thread a red Wiggler. On the Boise River, using this method a few weeks ago, I went 8 for 10 on the first 10 casts, 6 rainbows and 2 browns. Give the "Egg sucking Red Wiggler" a try!
Let's talk Keiryu!
“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.
