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.

Nice! How big was the largest?
by: Chris Stewart

Nicely done. The fly did look pretty nice.

Give us your best guess on the size of the largest fish.

Hooks aren't terribly expensive and now you know it's not hard to tie another fly.

Looking forward to your next fly and next submission.

I'm going to say no larger than 10 inches. Those two rainbows look about the same in length.

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.
