TenkaraBum Winter Challenge
13 1/2" #30

by Tim Homesley
(S.W. Missouri)

Caught several trout this morning on the #30 fly this morning, had a couple hooked up that were probably 16" but they got away :)
Biggest was this 13 1/2" rainbow on the #30 fly.
That is 24 #30's on the dime.

Tanago rod?
by: Chris Stewart

Yes, of course. About the only limitations are that the hook must be size 20 or smaller, and you must use a fly rather than bait. You can use different rods for catching your entries for the "largest" and "smallest" categories.

Photos of the other fish?
by: Chris Stewart

If you have a photo of one of the smaller fish, submit it as well. Having a second, smaller fish will give you a better score for both "smallest" and for "combined."

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.
