Re: Maintaining a journal

I just downloaded 'My Fishing Companion Pro' and 'My Fishing Journal Widget'. I do like both of them, more so 'My Fishing Companion Pro'. My only concern is I don't really see a way of backing them...

Re: Maintaining a journal

Something they told me at the fly shop :)

My understanding is that it's all catch and release and there's a lot of fishing pressure. The trout seem to have PhD's in fly detection. Lots of fish...

Re: Maintaining a journal

I quite agree with this. I'm just starting out with fly fishing for trout so I thought it might be a good idea to record where I'm catching them and in what conditions I caught them as a way to so...

Re: Maintaining a journal

I've certainly used that and will certainly continue to do so but the techie in me enjoys my toys! I really like My Tracks as it allows you to take pictures and they appear on your map in the...

Maintaining a journal

I would like to start documenting my fly fishing excursions with a bit of hard data such as weather conditions, pictures, the areas I fished, what I caught and where I caught it, etc. I'm wondering...

Re: Going downstream or upstream

I'm actually using a tenkara rod so keeping the line taut and off the water shouldn't be that much of an issue for me. Working upstream might be better for the way I fish.

Re: Going downstream or upstream

I know this is a difficult question to answer but about how long does it take fish to settle after someone has fished that area? I realize that it would depend on lots of things but is there a...

Re: Going downstream or upstream

That makes a lot of sense, I never considered the issue of keeping the line taut. I've always fished nymphs going upstream, I might have to try it downstream and see what kind of difference in make...

Going downstream or upstream

I've often heard that people tend to work downstream when fishing nymphs or wets and upstream when fishing dries. What advantage would going downstream have when fishing nymphs and wets? I can see...

Second day out with new rod

Well, I guess for me tenkara fishing is a lot like skiing. The first day trying it nothing seems to go right and you wonder if you'll ever get the hang of it. After sleeping on it and thinking about...

Little Patuxent in the winter

I was wondering if anyone does much fishing in the Little Patuxent around the Savage Mill area in the winter? As it's not a tailwater such as the Gunpowder is the water warm enough in the winter to...

Re: First day out with new rod

I've heard about the furled line being easier to cast but I've also heard it's more difficult to keep off of the water because of its weight. I've also heard that if you're having issues casting a...

Re: First day out with new rod

I've yet to even look at the Keiryu rods. I think I see another rod soon to me in my collection...

How would those rods do fishing clousers and the like for smallies on bigger rivers? Seems like...

Re: First day out with new rod

Not sure I'll ever sell all my other western gear, I still want to take on the smallies in the Potomac and hit the occasional bass pond but I do think tenkara might turn into my main style of fly...

Re: First day out with new rod

I was fishing a size 18 CDC caddis and I also tried a size 12 wet hackle tenkara fly. I'm sure it was me and not the fly. I just need to slow down a bit I'm sure. I've probably got some western style...

First day out with new rod

I finally got out today and tried out my new rod. Reality did not quite match expectations but expectations were probably a lot higher than they should have been. I do that a lot.

Had some...

Tenkara or western flies?

Just wondering how many of you are using tenkara flies when you use a tenkara rod. Has your choice of rod influenced your choice of flies or do you still use the same flies you did with your western...

Tenkara rod just showed up, now some questions.

My new Tenkara Nissin 360 just showed up today and I can't keep my hands off of it. The first thing that struck me was the weight, or I should say the lack of it. I weighed it on my kitchen scale and...

Re: Is tenkara replacing your western style fly fishing?

@eastfly66,

I assume by your comment that you have no interest in tenkara? If so, did you try it and not like it? Just curious.

Re: Is tenkara replacing your western style fly fishing?

Thanks for all the thoughts on this. I've been fly fishing for about three years now and just ordered my first tenkara rod so I've yet to use one.

I got it mainly because I love bike riding on the...

Is tenkara replacing your western style fly fishing?

I imagine that most here on this forum started off with western style fly fishing before getting into tenkara. I'm wondering, now that you've tried tenkara, what percentage of your fly fishing is...

I went ahead and ordered the Nissin from TenkaraBum. I also ordered the fly tying DVD as I enjoy tying my own flies.

I did email Chris with some questions and he was very quick to get back to me...

Re: Nissin or Iwana?

I'm seriously tending toward the Nissin simply because it's made in Japan and not China. If you have one, where did you get it? I was wondering if anyone here has dealt with TenkaraBum, and if so,...

Re: Nissin or Iwana?

I noticed that these tenkara rods don't seem to have reel seats. What's up with that?? No biggie, I have plenty of duct tape on hand.
