Yamame on 04/28/2010 15:05:23 MDT Print View

I've never tried fly fishing before but I've always wanted to and I just got off the phone with Daniel at Tenkara USA. His customer service was excellent. He was patient with me, answered all my questions, and was quite helpful. I now have a Yamame rod and lines coming to terrorize the bass around here.

I was so excited I had to run down to Academy and peruse their selection of gear just to see what they had. I ended up walking out with one of those nifty Morell foam fly boxes like what is out of stock on here. I haven't been this excited about fishing in a long time.

Hey Larry,
Congratulations. You will love Tenkara fishing! Let us know when you've had a chance to use your Yamame.

I'm planning to go through a similar process... I'm interested in learning to fly fish, and other than I'm going to get a rod from Tenkara USA I have no idea as to what to get. So I'll be learning from your experience (right now I'm waiting on my budget before I pester Daniel for advice).

It arrived on 05/06/2010 16:26:31 MDT Print View

Well the package arrived. The quality is top notch and I couldn't be happier. I'll report back once I get a chance to use it on the water (I made some casts on grass and it was as easy as everyone says). Hopefully I can slip away tomorrow evening and give it a try on some fish.

I debated on the BPL Hane but I've got plenty of room where I normally fish so I didn't figure there was a point in worrying about it being slightly lighter for the trade off in length.
