I am always honored when someone gives a gift of tenkara fishing with me to a loved one. There’s an added level of motivation to make sure the day goes as well as it can. Yesterday, it certainly did. The smiling gentleman with that monster Brown Trout was cashing in a gift certificate that came as a Christmas Present (Santa is visible in the background and in the second photo).
After lunch we had a great hike up to some high water, caught some native Brookies, and enjoyed the beautiful May wild flowers. Now that’s a Merry Christmas!
