    Default A Win for Tenkara

    I won our fly club?s on fly contest this year using a Tenkara rod. The goal of the contest is to land as many bluegills as possible in two hours using only one fly. You can retie but if you loose your fly anything you catch from then on doesn?t count. I caught 18 bluegills.

    It is a lot of fun. This year the fishing was a little more challenging than some other years. The gnats were terrible and there was a lot of cottonwood cotton on the water constantly fouling everybody’s flies and line. I won because I found a bluegill bed that still had a lot of fish on it. Tenkara is a great way to catch a lot of fish fast when they are concentrated in a small area and I didn’t find this bed until late in the competition. I was able to surge out ahead and win, finally. I’ve been doing the one fly for 9 years.
