There are few things more enjoyable than helping someone catch their first trout on tenkara. When that first day out results in a photo-op with a quality fish like this one, that’s a good day. Fortunately we had a number of “warm-up” fish before this porker came knocking and ran into a happy tenkara first-timer who was more than up to the task. Patience, good fighting tactics and yes, a little good fortune make almost any trout catch-able on tenkara. That doesn’t mean you catch ’em all…but we caught this one!
