We’ve had an unusually cool November so far and yesterday morning was no exception. Starting temps in the upper 20’s and a little bit of ice on the rod and rig were sure signs that winter is getting closer. Hot coffee, dressing properly and making sure your boots aren’t too tight all help but nothing warms you up like catching fish. It’s amazing how quickly a solid take and a good bend in the tenkara rod can make you forget all about how chilly you were just moments before. The idea of being warmed by cold blooded trout probably flies in the face of the laws of thermodynamics but trust me….it works!
