TenkaraBum Challenge - Bluegill
by Karl Lawson
( Las Vegas, NV)
My son and I finally got out for an afternoon of fishing at a marsh about an hour north of Las Vegas. I was using the Nissin Pro Spec, whose 2-way zoom feature is proving very handy for those fish near the bank or under thick cottonwoods. I caught quite a few little bluegills and little bass on the black Killer Bugger: size 10 for the bluegill, and size 6 for the bass.

"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.
