A Tale of Two Trout

In angling terms, catching an amazing fish like this on tenkara is truly, “The best of times.”   Tenkara is not really intended to catch fish this size but with good technique (and a little good fortune), it can be done.  The truth is though, that for every picture like this, there is probably a story about the fish that  got away and in doing so taught us the lesson that made landing the next one possible.   It usually takes a few tries to get your first, really big fish to the net.   Successful fish fighting on tenkara requires good tactics, touch, anticipation and agility.  These things come only through practice.  The great thing is that the only way to practice is to go tenkara fishing.  So get out there and go for it!
