BIG TROUTcaught Amago tenkara rod WOW you have to see

Postby Ant75 » Fri Feb 15, 2013 4:52 pm

Hey All

Im back from my 2 week fishing trip in New Zealand
Most of the time I had to use my 7wt Fly Rod as the fish are huge over there and
its was hard to cast the Tenkara and strike the fish with all the Willow trees around

Any way I got a nice size one on my Amago I got it to the bank and got a hold of the tippit I was using ( frog hair ) CRAP TIPPIT , anyway the tippit snapped at the side of the bank so I grabbed my net and scooped it in

So check it out got it on video

Also I would like to say a big thanks to Daniel and the guys from Tenkara USA this might show what the rods can realy do
Tenkara. Simplicity of a small stream.
Dose a small stream always have a big fish ?

Great fish! some day I hope to make it to New Zealand to fish. My old boss has been several times and now he gets cranky in winters (here in Montana) when he can't escape there.
