Today I brought out the Air Stage 390 with some Mummy Worms. I really like the Air Stage for the kind of fishing that I do most often, which is pond fishing or bayou fishing for small panfish.
However I have found that Mummy Worms catch a far bigger variety of fish than I ever caught with red wigglers. It is so exciting hooking new species that you have never caught before or catching something far bigger than you expect. Today I hooked this catfish that I had to fight for over three minutes to get to the bank.
Lately I have been on an Ultralight Worm Fishing kick. I'm using approximately 10 feet of Tenkara line, small 2 or 3 foot tippet, a small split shot, and a hook. This method has proved so deadly that I have not fished anything else in a few weeks. I have never had as much fun as I am having Ultralight Worm Fishing with a seiryu rod. You owe it to yourself to try it.
Some of you, like me, don't have time to make it to the best places or to the best fishing in the US. This fishing makes any fish seem like you had the time and preparation to make it to a premier fishing destination.

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.
