Just started the celebration by tying a fly with an independent spirit, the Tenkara Independence Kebari.
Happy Independence Day everyone!
Near the end of the day I was able to sneak out to a nearby stream and test the fly. The water is still running high so I had to work hard to find the first fishable spot. Then, when I did, on the first cast I caught this little brown. I missed two more and landed one more before it got too dark to see.
