One fly
by: jeffmtnman

I thinking a "one fly challenge" wherein you indicate at the start the fly you'll be using, then all fish entered must have been caught on that one fly. Each angler can choose his/her own fly of any type.

Break time!
by: TIMMY!

I say "no challenge" for a few months. Let Chris relax and y'all go out and fish free-style anywhere and any way you want. No rules, no restrictions. Just GET OUTSIDE and FISH!!!

I'd like to see a tenkara/tanago/kieryu type of thing, or at least fly and bait mix.

Next Challenge?
by: Chris Stewart

There is still another month to go on the Utah Killer Bug Challenge being hosted on the Appalachian Tenkara Anglers Facebook page. That gives me a little breathing room.

Not sure about the next challenge after that. I have already received several suggestions, and suggestions are welcome!

I have an idea for one, but it will have to simmer a bit before I can decide if it's any good.

If you (collective you, all of you, y'all) have an idea, post it here.

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.
