Re: Is it the pattern or the presentation??

Touché, silver. Touché. Thanks for the link to that thread. Most interesting. Oh, and thanks for probably the best piece of practical advice I had never thought of:

Re: Is it the pattern or the presentation??

Good information about dries, guys.

I have not been so great at getting dries to work on streams but I have a whole lot of fun catching blue gill with them. I know, I know: blue gills are...

Thanks, oldtimer.

EXACTLY WHAT I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO SAY!!

You expressed in a few words what I have been trying to say. By limiting your choices, you were forced to work harder at making the...

Re: Is it the pattern or the presentation??

Hello, silver,

You pose some very good questions and even better arguments. I had to re-read what I originally posted so I could fully wrap my head around it. I needed to remember why I posted...

Re: Is it the pattern or the presentation??

I agree. We have spoken before about Tenkara and the more I thought of it, the more I realized the fact that Tenkara "works" is precisely the thing that seems like a hindrance: you are constantly...

I have been doing a lot reading during these dark, damp, cold winter days and have read some interesting things. The more I read, the more I have been seeing a running theme that too many of us tend...

Re: Why does this always happen??

So, I gather that you think this is the first step to actually becoming a fly fisher, right? If I rack my noggin', it seems to me that this has been said by many of the best in here without really...

Why does this always happen??

Dang-gone wintertime. I don't mind the cold but it gets dark so blasted fast that there is no way I ever get time to go fishing. So what do I do? I surf the stupid Internet. I am constantly...

Re: How do you fish a Tenkara on still water?

Thanks, standman. Now you lead me to another question. (I am just full of them!)




Are you saying you just attach 20 feet of fluorocarbon to the rod? No other type of line? (Well, other...

Re: Distance.... A question for us "older" casters

Ain't that the truth! Happens to me all the time. Those buggers just swim around my feet laughing at me.

Re: How do you fish a Tenkara on still water?

:D That's me! I always make the simple seem hard. I am definitely going to give this Tenkara thing a shot. I may even try using a fly rod at first in a spot that I know I won't get snagged.

Re: How do you fish a Tenkara on still water?

Thanks for the information. You cleared up a lot of things about the retrieve. I was going to use it simply to float some foam bugs for bluegill but now you've got me thinking about more. I am...

Re: How do you fish a Tenkara on still water?

This may be a ridiculous question but can I simply use a fly rod and turn it into a Tenkara rod? Just tie the Tenkara leader to the top guide and give it a whirl?

I have a very "slow" 8-ft, 4-wt...

Re: How do you fish a Tenkara on still water?

Yes. I understand what you are saying about the rod. I was thinking about using a Cut Throat Tenkara leader on it. Would that work?


Thanks,

Re: How do you fish a Tenkara on still water?

Thanks, William. That is what I was thinking: use the rod tip to control the fly. It's just how do I retrieve the fly on still water?

For now, I figure on just playing with it with bluegill and...

How do you fish a Tenkara on still water?

So, I saw a thread here talking about using Western flies or Tenkara files on a Tenkara rod. I look at these rods, from time to time, and they seem extremely interesting to me. I know I am becoming...

Ard,

You did it again. Another marvelous post. I read it three times and I know there are gems in here that I missed, so I need to read it a bunch more times.

Re: Your fishing preference

Personally, I like to go where nobody is for the most part. I know there are fish *somewhere* but it really isn't the fish I am looking for. I am looking for solitude and quietness and, well, all...

Re: Fishing Field Notes

NO!!!

I have no special place that I know about but, if I did, I would tell nobody. Actually, there is this one stream but it is a bass spot. I won't tell anybody where that is. Nope.

Re: Streamer Tactics

Okay, this is where I have a question. I want to do this, I really do, but how far do you cast the fly? I swear I don't cast far enough and the streamer is halfway back to me before my strips do...
