That is an impressive catch. And i have more respect for that catch because I spent 20 minutes trying to tire a carp on a tenkara rod today and it was in full control the entire time. It finally broke off after it seemed to find the only tree branch in the section of stream it inhabited. My TenkaraUsa rod just couldn't take care of business, I never once had control of that fish.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin

"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.
