After reading about Tenkara here I decided to give it a try. I bought a goture rod from amazon along with a floating line from wetfly and some 7x tippet. I tried it out tonight for the first time in our pond. I used a Accardo Round Dinny fly and caught one ten inch bass. What fun that was. I’m was trying this cheap setup to see if I want to take something a little nicer when I go West next year on vacation. I have a 5wt Fenwick rod already but I was intrigued by the simplicity of Tenkara. So far I’m sold on the concept. I don’t believe it to be any cheaper or some of the other arguments made in comparison to it’s superiority over regular fly fishing I read online but as a way to fish it’s fun. I am allergic to fish so catching them to me is only about fun and relaxing. I’m particularly fascinated with catching and photographing small fish and plan to explore that further. Anyone have a photo tank your using or tips for the photography? Also what length tippet are you using? Sorry no pictures it was after dark when I caught the fish.
