Fishing with Cork Graham

Yesterday, Tenkara USA went tenkara fishing with outdoor columnist and outdoor show host Cork Graham. Cork is the author of best selling book The Bamboo Chest, and is currently conducting a donation campaign to help US war veterans.
We went up to the Sierras for a day trip, and settled to fish on a beautiful creek. We had heard the creek had some larger fish, and were a bit hesitant…
Though tenkara is really a style of fishing for smaller fish, Cork hooked and landed a beautiful 15 inch rainbow trout using our Yamame rod and a Sakasa, reverse hackle fly. It was a beautiful fight, and Cork landed the fish without a problem.

    A 15 inch fish is not big enough to be a problem, except maybe in heavy current, but it is certainly big enough to get the adrenaline pumping. I bet that is one fish he won’t soon forget.

    Nice fish Cork! I haven’t fished the Sierras for a few years but plan on going back soon.

  3. Thanks, Jeff. I’m a convert to fishing with this ancient Japanese-style of fishing. Glad Daniel brought it to my attention: can’t wait to try it on the high mountian streams for brookies another episode of Cork’s Outdoors!
