    Daniel, I really enjoyed listening to this podcast. I live in Central Iowa and do a lot of warm water fishing with a tenkara rod.

    Thank you very much for these pocasts and for the additional information/ pictures that you provide. I am a man who loves to fish but I don’t get near as much time on the water as I would like. So, I live vicariously through pocasts and other forms of media that keep me connected to the lifestyle/sport that I love. It also help me learn a tremendous amount so that my time on the water is both productive and pleasant.

    I was very intrigued by the “one fly” approach that TJ uses. I liked the way that he uses the white head as an aid to see his fly and that it provides both black and white coloring both of which seam to be very attractive to fish at different times. Would it be too much trouble to post a picture of TJ’s fly. What really amazes me is that the James Wood Fly looks like nothing that I would imagine a fish would eat…yet it clearly catches fish (and big ones at that).

    Again, thanks to You and to Bart and to TJ…Your insight and experience with panfish and Tenkara have been a huge help!

    Just listened to the podcast this morning and really enjoyed it. Please have more discussions in the future. What does “level line” mean?

    • Thanks Mike. Another episode will drop soon, so thanks for the feedback. The level line is a tenkara line with a level (uniform) diameter (as opposed to tapered). The cool thing about level lines is that you can cut whatever length of line you want to use, so it gives you a little more flexibility.
