Just wanted to say hello to everyone on the site. Just received my Iwana and the other required gear to go out and start rockin the Tenkara here in Seattle. Gonna try to hit some Eastern Washington desert creeks next week so I'll report if theres anything worth reporting.

Hi Bridge,

I'm certain that you'll really enjoy Tenkara fishing. Once you find how much conventional gear is unnecessary and how wonderful trout fishing can be with only a sensitive rod and line, you'll be hooked (just like the many trout that you'll catch).

Short lines,

Jim

I just got my new Iwana this morning too. Going to get it on the stream tomorrow morning for some trout fishing - can't wait - very sweet little set up. The rod has more beef than I expected and overall feels much like tip casting a super ultra light switch rod. I like this :D

Rebecca,

After a week of constant snow shoveling, I'm looking forward to your report.

Hey Bridge, I just got my Yamame too. I am not sure where to go right now. The Yakima maybe next week, just read the article on Rocky Ford too. I don't know if it's open though.

Rocky Ford is open year around. Went a couple of weeks ago and regular fly fished. I am considering getting into Tenkara fly fishing. Thinking about the Ebisu since I wanted an all around rod to fish the upper Yakima or Cedar River. Not sure how it would do in some of the windy conditions that we get in Washington state.
