First time fishing in SW Montana...

My first Madison River Rainbow... look at how small the fly is.
(It's that little black dot in the corner of the mouth)

Tenkara..... My first trout on the new Tenkara Rod.
(one of many) :wink:
The rod was designed for this kind of fishing.
But it really hasn't caught on with the guides... :evil:
I took a lot of good natured heat for using it....
But then after I started hooking fish....
Look who's laughing now. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I think we should make a T-shirt: "Montana is Tenkara Country"
:twisted: :lol: :twisted: :lol: :twisted:
Why let the truth stand in the way of a good fish story.

Alright! Now I know any country is Tenkara Country. I like the idea of the t-shirt. I think it would sell here very well. I'll take two size 2XL. How soon should I expect delivery!? Did you see Kelly Galloup? I think he's on the Madison.

My Tenkara Rods:
13' Ayu, 12' Yamame, 11' with a conversion handle, and an Ito.

My Wife's Tenkara Rods:
12' Ebisu and 13.5' Amago, 12' Iwana with a conversion handle, and an Ito.

I'll be speaking at the Madison Fly Fishing Festival next week, can't wait for the stares and remarks (if I get anyone to come to my presentation that is :))
Can't wait to fish there too!
