Kiyotaki 18 and Micro Fly Fishing

By / August 29, 2015 / Bluegill, Micro Fishing, Sunfish

Headed out to Plano Saturday morning and fished the Davis Library Pond using the Kiyotaki 18 Rod and a Size 14 Gold Ribbed Hares Ear Nymph.

Had a mix of little Bluegill/Sunfish with a several larger ones that took the fishing fly as well.

Been a while since we fished with the light Tenkara-style rod. Almost forgot how simple it was to fish with minimal gear.

Had a fun time… later went back out in the afternoon and had more fun Micro Fly Fishing. Still working on the video; will post soon as it’s done. Stay tuned, hoping the underwater video shots can be used!

Tenkara and Tanago rods tend to be quite expensive, with a short Tanago rod costing around £45-£50 here in the UK. I use the much cheaper versions from Hong Kong and China off Ebay that do the job for me equally as well as the more expensive rods. And if they were to get broken by an unexpected larger fish then it wouldn't be financially annoying. I fish for juvenile perch in waters that contain some very large pike, so whilst I would love to buy an actual Japanese made Tanago rod, I would be absolutely gutted to have a £50 rod broken by a large pike.

I am so envious, you live in a part of the World with some fabulous fishing venues. I live in the industrial north of England, Manchester, where the dirty, murky canal network is my main source of fishing. My main target species are European Perch and the occasional Northern Jack Pike. This is a great blog, well done.
