I tend to spend a lot of time on the water with folks who are new to tenkara and/or new to fly fishing altogether. I love it and I love the thrill of introducing people to the wonderful world of tenkara fly fishing. Every now and then though, I get to fish with somebody who is both practiced and skilled at tenkara. That’s fun of a different kind. Such was the case the other day when I basically served as “Fish Scooper” for the skilled tenkara veteran pictured above. All I had to do was not mess up when it came time for the net. Thankfully I didn’t when this beauty came to hand!
