TenkaraBum No Vise Challenge - First Timer

My ugly little fly.

My ugly little fly.

I used a bait-type hook for this fly with the barb crushed and the filed a little. The hackle is Hungarian partridge and the thread is just some dark brown standard sewing thread. I only caught 6 little sunfish on this fly since the wind was horrible that day (although I did great on a keiryu rig) the biggest barely hitting 4 inches. But still a great day!

“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.
