My Kurenai Review

Kurenai with GSMNP Brookie!

Kurenai with GSMNP Brookie!

I've absolutely worn out the Brook Trout in the Smoky Mountains on two different occasions with my Kurenai HM30R. This little rod is an absolute thrill to fish with! It will handle any Brook Trout in the Smoky Mountains and the Rainbows and Browns on the smaller waters. I wouldn't expect anyone to be disappointed with this rod.

“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

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.
