Ordered my first Tenkara rod

Postby Wilfred » Mon Jan 25, 2010 7:20 am

After reading every bit of information I could find and watching a lot of videos I just ordered a 12ft Iwana, a moss green line and a bottle of five flies. Don't know if I'm the first (don't think so) but can't imagine there's many Tenkara fishermen in The Netherlands. The fish species I will be chasing here are rudd and roach, but I don't mind if anything else takes a nibble, as long as it ain't a water rat! :o

Some people here may already know me from the Classic Fly Rod Forum.

Tenkara will be a wonderful way to broaden my fly fishing horizon!

Regards, Wilfred
