TenkaraBum Challenge - Shortnose Gar

(Kansas City, MO)

Shortnose Gar

Shortnose Gar

Shortnose Gar 2nd Gar landed on beach Size 12 beadhead killer bugger honorably retired

I returned to Indian Creek with renewed focus and a bigger net. And also a good location tip from Zach Janssen a local carp on the fly specialist. The setup for both fish was the Kiyose 33SF with a size 12 bead head Killer Bugger.

If you're going after a lot of gar some heavy scud hooks would be a good idea.

“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.
