TENKARA!.....TENKARA!......TENKARA! was heard throughout the day by anyone within ear shot as we disturbed the solitude of the park! We landed 8 brooks and browns before the afternoon storm ran us off the water. Sharing the Tenkara, we used #16 bead head hares ears, #16 ABU’s and #16 zebra midges. What an experience…! What an exciting way to experience fly fishing from another perspective. Okay so what to do with your line hand, and landing the fish was comical to watch. Just another excuse for more time on the water. Practice, practice, and more practice.
