TenkaraBum Challenge - Brown Trout
by Alan Luecke
(Kansas City, MO)
After leaving the Ouray, Ridgway area in the San Juans my wife and I spent some time in Frisco in Summit County before returning to Kansas City. This little brown was caught in North Tenmile Creek right by the parking lot in the shadow of I-70. I was working the side seams with a size 14 Killer Bugger and my Soyokaze.

"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.
