Bream on the beds

The boy and I have been fishing a little lately, mostly with Tenkara rods but the last few days with 1wt. and 3wt. TFO rods, anyway we have been wearing them out. In two days we have caught around 50 fish each, all catch and release. Most of these fish have been of good size.

Wow 2 post in one day!
Over the past few weeks I've been looking at Tenkara ( Japanesse flyfishing ) so last week I ordered an Iwana II 12FT. rod and 13FT. of furled line from I've only fished this rod a couple of times but it's fun and only a little different from western flyfishing.

Fall Spawn ?

Over the past couple of weeks I've been catching some nice size Bream with bright colors on the 1wt. and 3 wt. rods.

I've stumbled across Japanesse flyfishing called Tenkara on the net, it looks interesting. I think I'll give it a try. More to follow...

More ditch fishing

The boy and I had a chance to bond and fish, witch is one and the same, yesterday afternoon by fishing in a near by creek with light rods, a 1wt and a 3wt, and caught some small bream and almost stepped a water moccasin.

Ditch fishing tonight

Just behind some a local park runs a small wood creek that I have been looking at for a very long time . Tonight or this evening really, I got back into it and found a gem of a stream. Highly shaded, clear water that is about 18 inches deep on average, and wiyh a sandy bottom. It has lotts of little Bream just a bit shorter than my hand that are eager to hit a surface fly or a scudd. By the way I was using a 3wt.
