Yesterday my wife Mary spent a half day fishing with Mike Warren, a Tenkara guide from Lacrosse, Wisconsin. I felt it would be better for both her and I if she learned from a guide who is used to working with beginners. We met at a designated spot and, after gearing up, they headed downstream and I headed upstream. When I came back 2 ½ hours later they had already landed about 12 fish but had no photos since they had both left their phones back in the cars. I stayed with them and was able to get a few pictures.
