Well I finally made a fishing video (complete with my own music). Since I made a video I’m not going to say too much about this day of tenkara. It was a good day. Didn’t catch any big ones on the Savage – but did catch a few on an unweighted peacock body, reverse hackle fly (sakasa kebari). The fly was tied on an eyeless Owner Mountain Stream hook using orange no 2. silk bead cord for the eye and hen pheasant for the hackle.
Had a great time on the small stream (same fly) – losing count of the fish. If you can’t see my line very well it’s because I’m using a hand furled leader that I make with nylon mono – it fishes great but it doesn’t video so well.
If you watch till the end you’ll see a little surprise – well a big surprise for me at the time.
The one fly season is going great – links –> days 1 and 2 (plus some discussion about the one fly season), days 3 and 4. Days 5 through 8 haven’t been posted yet – but I’ll get to it.
