TenkaraBum Streamer Challenge Gallery

The TenkaraBum Streamer Challenge is over. Congratulations to the two winners: Michel Terheggen for the largest fish, a 30" pike, and Alan Luecke for most species, with 33.

A total of 51 species of fish were caught on streamers or bucktails, which I think proves pretty conclusively that you can indeed fish a streamer on a tenkara rod!

A hearty thank you to all participants.
