amen. fished my buddies farm pond yesterday and we took turns using my 12' iwana and a #10 black beadhead bugger. several nice slab side crappie and pugnacious bluegills later, my friend was a tenkara convert. and we each caught a healthy 16" bass to boot. first successful fishing day with the iwana and i was more than pleased. it even handled the bass with aplomb. last fish of the day i never saw, but it felt and fought like a catfish. took a nosedive under the dock and when i grabbed the line, the tippet gave. my buddy was online last night looking to get a fountainhead tenkara for himself.
