I recently got out for a nice hike & fish day trip.
Weather was crisp and clear with blue skies in all directions.
I wanted to test out the latest creation, a 3 pc bamboo tenkara style rod. At just 6' it packs down & is ideal for the very small wild trout streams that I hike to.
Gear for the trip: L to R [Patagonia R1, Bamboo Tenkara by me, small fly case & tippet holder, sil- bag wallet & phone, head net in cuben bag, Golite wind jacket, bandana, monocular, first-aid pouch, self-made day pack, H2O bladder]
This guy was just out soaking up some sun.
Overall a nice trip; learned alot about actually what it takes to hook & land a fish using this rod/method.
I must say that I am "hooked" on the Tenkara style, as it is perfect for small streams that I love to find.
