First Fish on my Tenkara Yamame

Postby gentleshepherd » Wed Aug 12, 2009 6:32 pm

Today was the first chance I had to get out with my Yamame! I was impressed with the casting. Didn't catch anything big, caught a nice Bluegill. Had a few trout follow but no takers.

I need to work on the presentation a bit yet, maybe a shorter tippet after the leader.

Overall I am pleased, even the Bluegill put a bow in the rod.

Hope to get out again this weekend.

Congratulations on the first fish! I still need to catch my first one but I'm sure it will be soon.
