TenkaraBum No Vise Challenge - First Timer
by Rob R.
(Wichita Falls, TX )
I'm resubmitting this since catching fish with the fly.
I received a recent order (titanium net) from TenkaraBum and included was a kit for the no vice challenge. It was a #12 hook, black thread and a feather.
I caught three trout before losing the fly in a tree! Oh well. I have to say, the fly was working pretty well.
“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin
"Study to be quiet." - Izaak Walton 1653
"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.
