Tenkara Diaries – April 26th, 2013

A frying pan and a tenkara Grand Slam in Colorado… Armed with a tenkara rod (I was using the Tenkara USA Ito), tenkara line and tenkara flies I went fishing near Aspen, Colorado yesterday. Caught some pretty good fish, a couple in the 20 inch range. You’ll see a tweak I did to my tenkara fly, the Amano kebari during the video, which seemed to produce results.

    Daniel, you’re having too much fun, get back to WORK!!!!!

    Interesting that your fly was more productive after it was artificially made to look a bit beat up. There is a thread on the forum about ugly flies that has not attracted much interest for the rough looking flies. But many have found a fly with the hackle half way torn off becomes more attractive to the fish. So I latch on to that so I don’t have any anxiety about my poor tying talent. Maybe pretty flies catch fly shoppers and rough flies catch fish.

    Great work again. That was a good shot of showing how to land a fish as well. The Amano Kebari tied with a slate color thread caught me a nice brown today when others got nothing.

    The great part is that I got the fish in a spot that I went to after I left the area I was originally fishing. A kayaker came in and parked right on top of the spot I was fishing. His lack of etiquette worked in my favor and made me try a spot I haven’t been to in a few years.
