    Default Patrick's First Tenkara Trout

    Patrick and I just spent a few days in the canyons and had a great time. We were blown completely out of one canyon on Monday, enduring 70 mph winds, blowing sand, and low visibility because of all the dust in the air. We finally found it nearly impossible to walk or stand up in the wind. We bailed, regrouped, and descended into another slot in the earth and spent the rest of the week exploring and tenkara fly fishing. In short order Patrick got the hang of it, and here's his first ever tenkara trout! Yahoo!

    Now he will be hooked! I love the simplicity of Tenkara. Our season opens in 2 days!

    Open season here year round . We haven't had fishing seasons since the 50's or 60's.

    He looks as happy as a kid who just caught his first fish. It never gets old does it?!
