  • New Online Article… “Simple Tenkara Fly” is Posted!

    By / June 19, 2016 / Fishing

    Posted a new article online – “Simple Tenkara Fly”, that demos how we tie the Tenkara Fly. It’s the pattern we have been using lately. Have tied it in Olive/White and Orange/White variations and have had god success! Really like the pulsing action imparted by the reverse hackle; keeps things looking lively!

  • Two Weight Keeps Doing Well

    By / June 17, 2016 / Fishing

    Was able to get a round of fishing in today. No Bruisers but had lots of fun catching them using the two weight fiberglass rod. Fish went for tenkara flies initially, but shifted to striking “flying insects” landing on the water. So, put on the foam grasshopper and started catching them with it!
