Take a look at the excellent angling form of the tenkara first timer above. Rod tip high and leading the fly downstream, line tidy and ready for a take, fly drifting drag free with the current (flowing from right to left in the picture), angler focused, expecting a take and ready to set the hook. That’s how you do it! Below is the reward for such good technique…another fish in the net.
Good fishing yields good results and details matter. Next time you go fishing, take some time to look at what you’re doing and worry less about what the fish are doing. If you do your job, they’ll do theirs and you’ll end up smiling like these tenkara aces!
