The latest issue of Fly Fisherman has an article on "tarpon" on Tenkara... (baby tarpon, but still) Big Smile

On small streams it has merit for sure. I took my "redneck" tenkara rod (a collapseable crappie pole) to Colorado for last falls elk hunt. We caught a bunch of stream trout with it and had a blast. I need to experiment to find the best length of fly line vs rod length etc.

Heck, even big streams would probably work, but i never tried one yet.

Yup. it is fun and it works and if you do it redneck style ( the american way) it shouldn't cost so much. ChuckC

At the Southern Wisconsin Chapter of Trout Unlimited's Fly casting Class on April 16 there will be a session on Tenkara fishing. The class will be on Black Earth Creek probably in Cross Plains. Also my last year for teaching the class. It has been a great run but at 72 (on April 16!) time for the younger guys to take over.

I did this on the cheap. Meaning using a telescoping cane pole, cheap floating fly line and made my own tippets. Basically it was a cheap way to get into fly fishing on small streams. It is an absolute blast hooking into fish using this method.

I don't get it. Isn't this just an "upgrade" to a bamboo rod?

That is what I was thinking, seems like it would be perfect for smaller streams. I heard about it from a guy who does back country stream fishing in Wyoming and said it was a lot easier to backpack in with this setup.

It's probably just a gimick to make more money, but me want one.....

It looks like a lot of fun and far less monkeying around.
