New Mexico Bluegill II - New Lesson Learned

Postby Vince_villavivencio » Mon Aug 19, 2019 9:48 am

Learned something new while fishing for Bluegill with a Tenkara Rod.

After I would cast out a floating fly (Itsabug - http://www.southeastflyfishingforum....nal-t5273.html) and letting it sit until the wave rings disappeared, I started to move the fly by tapping on the handle (such as described by Discover Tenkara - Ashtapa-zuri, https://vimeo.com/179307218). Note, Ashtapa-zuri => tap the ashes from a cigar.

I got lethargic big Bluegill chasing down the fly from 15 feet away.

Return to Tenkara as a tool - Lakes, nymphing, etc.
