Rush River Tenkara

March 26, 2017

March 26, 2017

Unfurled the Tenkara rod on the Rush River to see if I could replicate last weeks success, this time on a different river.

First cast, bingo. Just a little guy, but a nice way to start the day.

A midge beneath an indicator was the ticket, at least for me.  The water was low and clear, so good thing it was overcast.  Amazing how well the fish conceal themselves along the bottom.  Looking down from above you see nothing but rock and other sediment, and then from between the rocks, a fish and the fight is on.

Caught lots of  fish varying in size up to about 11″ but I did have a large one on that just slipped away at the last minute.  I can still feel the give of the rod as the line pulled loose and then watched as the fish triumphantly swim back to the boulder from which I initiated contact.  Next time.  I know where you live.

The freedom to fish

rod, fly, clear water, and time

Lucky, yes we are.
