Seeing Blue

by Ashton Chatelain
(Bluffdale Utah )

Thursday was a normal trip for my buddy and I as far as destination and time spent on the water. Lately the fishing has been hot on this small Utah stream now that it’s warming up. This was my best day yet this year, and maybe my fifth or sixth trip with my tenkara rod. Every fly I fished was blue primarily dressed with Chris’s blue TenkaraBum yarn. I will start posting the fish on this post and if I can upload more than 4 photos then that to it I will. Otherwise it is going to have a lot of follow up posts, and I will comment on the flies at the end. It was a good day.

“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.
