While doing research and sketching out illustration ideas I inevitably went back though my logs and past artwork to get inspiration. With that in mind I decided to share a few of those with you along with a few recent Tenkara outings.
A few weeks ago I took the Tenkara rod up to the smokies but completely struck out. I believe that it could have been the first and only time the fish failed to bite while using the Tenkara rod. At the very least I have always been able to hook into a young trout or bluegill in a days worth of fishing but alas it was not to be.
When I got home however I took that Tenkara rod back out and with the kids in tow, we were able to redeem it with a bunch of large sunfish. The kids love its easy use and simplistic nature and for a day on a local pond, you just cant beat handing them a Tenkara rod and watching them hook into fish.
